100 Dolls 4 100 Girls Update

This is super exciting! It's February 24, not even halfway through the year, and we already have 22 dolls!
There are SEVERAL varieties and it is so neat how God is working in this project!
Here's a picture of several other dolls that are part of the special 100!

Other items that we have so far (you can see more in the inventory) are..

sewing kits, which my friend and I made (the same friend who helped with the soaps!) and they include:

thread, ribbon, safety pins, a needle, buttons

(side view)

These will go in the older girls' shoeboxes.

Our clothing supply is also growing, which is very exciting!

The older girls'...

The middle girls'...

The youngest girls'..

The fun and colorful washcloths will be so neat for the girls to have!
We have nearly half the amount of soap we need - 47 bars to be exact!

Here are the ones that were made several weeks ago, which you read about in the last post.
Thanks so much for reading and supporting!
We appreciate all the prayers and donations, and remember, if you have anything to donate, let me know through our contact page!

An Adventure in Soap-making

❤❤❥❥❤❤❤❤❤First of all, I am so sorry for this blog being so un-updated (I guess that'd be outdated, right?). Even though this blog has been a bit inactive (okay, a lot) the project most certainly has NOT been! We've been working really hard and if you check out the inventory (it hasn't been updated since our last batch of stuff) page, you can see all the amazing things people have donated!
A couple weeks ago, my best friend came over and together we made soaps for the project!
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
First, we started with soap blocks, melted them down and added coloring, and then..
.. poured them into old muffin tins (believe me, this is NOT the color of most of them)..
And let them set.
We ended up making 36 soap bars! It was super fun and really exciting!

It was so cool to see these rows of soaps for the shoeboxes!

I think it's so cool that by next year, these soaps will have gone across the world! And believe it or not, we still have another batch to make (yes, a smaller one).

This was my very favorite one - the color is stunning!


A HUGE thanks to my amazing friend for all her help!
If you have anything for the project to donate, please contact me through the contact page! I'm still praying for teammates to join the team and for all the girls who are going to receive these!
I hope to post at least once a week, with an update for you guys!
