Back in 2012 I shared this post to help my mum collect barbies for a project that she is part of.
Today I wanted to give you an update on this project since the blog post my mum and her sisters have donated a total of 300+ barbies to orphans and under privileged girls in various parts of the world.
The barbies that we have collected over these years have been given a mini makeover, dressed in beautiful items made by my mother and my aunts in France. They seem to have the process down well as they are like a mini factory every one of them has a job to do. It was a joy watching them on my last trip to France, they would gather every afternoon and work on this together. It actually brings them joy to do this, what a beautiful way to feel joy when giving to others.
After the barbies have all been dolled up, they are packaged and sent to Espoire sans frontiers (Hopes without barriers). They are then shipped to little girls who want have only seen these barbies and shops and only imagined playing with them.
I believe that we can do a lot to help each other and you might be surprised how little it takes of you to do so. It’s the little things that make a BIG difference to those less privileged.
Here is a picture of the girls with their dolls their smiles, priceless!
If you are in Oman have any barbies that your daughters don’t play with kindly email sewchicandunique [@] gmail.com or call/text 95151122 so we can set a place to meet.
For those out of Oman simply send me at the address above so I can send you our address in Oman/France (whichever is closer to you) to send the barbies to.
Thank you in advance and may we continue to make a positive difference in each others lives.
