15 Comfort Dolls arrive from Veleta of OR

Veleta (Sammy) of OR has donated 15 more of her creations and collected treasures for the Abused Women in shelters who would needs a heartfelt token of love and comfort. Sammy generously gathers dolls from her collection and donates them even though it is tough to pass on a treasured item from a friend, Sammy knows they will go to someone who truly needs them. This is quite a sweet and generous action Veleta, thank you so much for your gathering of love.

**Sammy is a phenominal beader among other artful ventures, and I wanted to share with you, this gorgeous beaded watch she had tucked in the bottom of the box for me.As my eyes took in the beauty of each doll I removed from the box and held, imagine my gasp when I discovered the watch.
Almost too much to absorb in one sitting. You know a few tears fell as I imagined a gal packing up some of her favorite things to donate and then to slip in a surprise for me as well.

I love sea themed anything, and this watch is unbelieveable. This is just another example of the giving heart of Sammy. I can't imagine the hours it took to create this. I do know it is a priceless treasure to me. Thank you for everything Sammy, your giving spirit certainly shines in everything you do.

Every donor is a treasure. Whether it is one doll or fifty, the time to gather supplies, create your dolls and pack them to ship off does not go unappreciated. I know the work involved in every step, and I know how busy life can get. I just want you all to know that not only are your generous gifts appreciated by their recipients, but by me as well. You are such a great group of women. Thank you.

Veleta IS an extraordinary beader and very generous. These dolls are such a prize and each woman that receives one will feel the healing love immediately.

Very thoughtful Veleta to include the watch. Its beautiful, as Pat is to support such a humbling cause.

How very blessed a child will be to receive these dolls.
