    What shall I do? What shall I do?.....

    I make dolls to give away to VERYsick kids (free including postage)(most go to kids with cancer)

    I put the 4 ready to be sent out to a child down for a nap and covered them with an afghan a dear friend gave me years ago.

    I am thinking of making a 'card' out of this via Flicker or something similar, for regular card sending, and perhaps enclosing it with the dolls when they get sent out, with a copy of the letter that goes from doll to child.

    I'm looking for opinions. Will you give me yours?

    Thanks

    Vickey S.

    You have a excellent idea here. This picture on a card along with the doll is a sweet detail that is perfect. Child and parents will be forever grateful for your loving gift.

    Thank you for your gift of dolls to very sick children.

    Cute idea -

    Maybe take another photo with only three dolls in/on the bed - so they seem less crowded? And more color variety, too, with their 'skins'?

    What about copyright on blanket saying? Might be an issue.

    I agree with this idea and would like to suggest that you get a step ladder and take a photo from above so that the dolls show up a bit more. You are the best. Love that you are doing this.

    Or ... could you elevate the heads of the dolls (like on pillows) so you can show more of their faces? These are so great and I think your idea for a card to enclose is wonderful!

    Well, I'm not so sure about this. I wonder if that very sick child might think you meant he or she was soon going to be "an angel"(die). I know this sounds ugly but I don't mean it that way. But sometimes children can have odd ideas about what a "grown-up" means. I think making the dolls are wonderful, kind and loving gifts. Perhaps a different wording on the front of the card could work better.
