Albania, I love thee!

I am now the proud sponsor of two little girls in Albania, through World Vision!

Majlinda, who I've sponsored for nearly a year now, and as of today, Inaete! They are the same age, and live in the same village/project, so I hope they are friends!

I sent Majlinda a little package yesterday, with two sets of Care Bear paperdolls (they were $1 each in the dollar bin at Target!), so I hope she shares!

Inaete's favorite activity is, I must find a way to send a doll! They suggest not sending big packages, but those manilla mailing envelopes are okay, so I try to send things that are flatter...hmmm, maybe a Barbie, taken from the box?

Ideas? Thoughts? Suggestions?

How sweet of you. It must be wonderful sharing in their lives. What about paper dolls? Or they do have very small dolls that are soft and huggable. She probably would enjoy something to hug.

SO HAPPY! Now I'm a little bit jealous. Also: I love the dollar bin at target! I find little flat things for Marinel every time I'm there :)

Good for you! I think World Vision is awesome.

That's great that they are in the same community! I sponsor Jose in Honduras through World Vision. I haven't sent him a package yet, but I've been thinking about what would fit in the envelope. Do they write to you?
