Comfort dolls

My friend NZJo

has been lamenting to me that the Aussies and Kiwis are not as yet supporting this “Comfort Doll call” in our own countries.

Yes,I know some have been sending dolls direct to Pat Winter in the USA,but don’t forget we have women in Australia and New Zealand who also need a helping hand.

Because of this,I have reproduced below Jo’s blogging on the matter…….

if you can help out at all,please consider emailing Jo at the addie below,or even me

at broomegal at

Now please go read Jo’s message,and then maybe go check out Pat’s blog too.

Comfort Dolls Down Under

By Jo in NZ

Pat delivered the first dozen dolls to a shelter in her area this week. You can read her post here. She has asked that I collect dolls from this side of the world, to save on postage there and back. Pat would like to try contribute to any countries that the dolls come from.

So come on all you Kiwi’s and Aussie’s,

send me a comfort doll, sure to please

a fellow female who lived it rough,

It will sure help to know that someone cared enough…

( if you want to stop the bad poetry, send a doll…NOW)

I would like to do a refuge here in NZ, then find a willing Aussie to do the leg work over there. You can contact me via my profile, or my email is playcentrejo(at)gmail(dot)com.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
