Dollies Without Borders
GAINESVILLE - These dolls are made with strings of love. "Dollies Without Borders," is an ongoing project happening in Gainesville and part of UF Health's Arts in Medicine program.
For about 6 years now, students are getting together to make hand-crafted dolls and giving them away in developing countries, like India and Thailand. The founder says the dolls are hand-delivered and reflect the ethnicity of the child receiving the doll so that they can identify with their inner beauty.
Madeline Austin the Founder said, "And it's wonderful to share not just the skill of making a doll, but the skills of sewing... The skill of community, giving, all of this stuff is so important."
"Dollies Without Borders" is open to everyone. They meet the first Saturday of every month at the UF Health (South Tower) Resource Center.
