7.  Just a reminder that the IWK has zero comfort dolls at the moment and is in very bad need of them.  These dolls can be knitted, crocheted, sewing, looming, there's even some made with socks!  Get creative and have fun with it.  The only rule is that there can't be any buttons, pompoms, or anything that could be considered a choking hazard since these are for babies and young children.  So faces will need to be made by knitting, sewing, or even draw them on.  J  Below is a pattern provided by the IWK and one that we found for looming.

World Day of Social Justice (Feb 20)

In the community where Clara lives in rural Guatemala, many people believe that women can't be strong leaders. As a result, Clara once lacked confidence in her abilities. This all changed when she participated in PWS&D-supported workshops designed to strengthen women's voices at home and in the community. Clara now works as a treasurer and health commissioner with organizations that are making her community a better place to live. While fulfilling her passion for leadership, Clara is paving the way for future generations of women to help build more prosperous, just communities. "We are highly grateful to PWS&D for supporting us in order to significantly change the hard reality of oppression and marginalization that exists."
