Helping the 'Kaiizen Kids!'Calling all knitters, crocheters, sewers, quilters!
The children in these orphanges can use handmade teddy bears, tanned skinned dolls, balls, 45" sq. blankets or quilts.
It would be wonderful to have a doll/bear and blanket for every orphan! In 2015 they will taken to orphanages in Swaziland, India and Brazil by the Kaiizen Foundation! This wonderful 501c3 charity travels to several places in the world, helping make life easier, and much better, for children in orphanages and WE can help them!
Their next trip will be June 15th, 2015 and items can be mailed to:
