These dolls are much simpler than the original Dancing Goddess Dolls. They are stuffed with polyester instead of wool, to make them washable. I still wouldn't recommend throwing them in a washing machine, but they are less likely to be ruined if they get wet.
Many of the fabrics and yarns for these dolls have been donated for the project, and many of the fabrics so far have been fun, bright prints.
Dolls are between 8 and 11 inches tall (due to the fact that donated fabrics are various sizes).
Price: $18, which buys you one Goddess for yourself, and sponsors a "twin" for a little girl in Haiti. Look for more information and availability in the Etsy shop.

Ladies for Haiti
When you purchase one of these simple Goddesses for yourself,
you also sponsor one to go to a little girl in Haiti.
Your doll will come unadorned, ready for you to dress her up, but the dolls going to Haiti include a doll necklace, which can also be worn as a bracelet by the recipient, as well as a little purse filled with ribbons, which can be used to decorate the doll's hair.
The donation aspect of this project is a joint effort with some Dancing Goddess Doll Friends who have aligned as the Kuan Yin Compassion Collective. The necklaces and purses are donated, as is much of the fabric and yarn. For more information on how you can participate, check out our Facebook page.
Our first recipient with her doll! This is Sherlanda and her brother. Sherlanda is holding the doll I sent, and appreciating the book of paper dolls Melissa sent. We are working with FAD Haiti and WeAdvance
