Spread­ing love with DICE dolls

Eyethu Baywatch - - NEWS • IZINDABA - Lau­rie Smith

AIN’T they sweet? These soft, hand-knit­ted dolls are the lat­est project that DICE (Do I Care Enough?) is fa­cil­i­tat­ing as they con­tinue to spread love and joy through­out the poor­est of Zu­l­u­land’s homes each Christ­mas.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion is now call­ing on kind-hearted mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to knit the dolls (the pat­tern is man­age­able for both begin­ner and ex­pe­ri­enced knit­ters), be­fore al­low­ing DICE to hand them over for ‘adop­tion’ by lit­tle girls through­out the area when they con­duct their an­nual Christ­mas Cheer Project.

Don’t de­spair if needle­work is not your forté!

You can still be a part of the Christ­mas Cheer Pro­gramme by con­tribut­ing to­wards their gro­cery bill as they pre­pare to hand out around 1000 buck­ets filled with gro­ceries dur­ing the month of De­cem­ber.

To ob­tain the sim­ple pat­tern for the dolls, or to sign up as a ‘bucket vol­un­teer’, please email mar­i­lyna.muller@gmail. com or call Mar­i­lyn on 083 2724166.

Con­sider spread­ing love and cheer this Christ­mas by vol­un­teer­ing to knit a doll for a lit­tle girl this Christ­mas through DICE’s Christ­mas Cheer Pro­gramme
