When tragedy strikes, Dolls of Hope is there to help. Sarah Carmichael Parson started the project in 2015 to send handmade dolls and stuffed animals to children in the refugee crisis and now they’ve sent 1,229 handmade lovies to kids separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The Utah resident feels a personal responsibility to help innocent children affected by wars and disasters has dedicated her life to it. So far, Dolls of Hope has sent more than 9,600 cuddly stuffed toys made by hand with love to children in need around the world.
“I wish I could hug all the kids and I can’t, but they can hug the doll over there that we send to them, and that gives me a little bit of comfort,” Parson says. “And hopefully it gives them some comfort.”
