THE DOLLS OF JOY
The use of comfort dolls began in 1998 when the first medical supplies were sent. Many of the supplies in the original shipment were made of glass (test tubes, glass vials etc.). The little knitted dolls were placed in the box as packing to protect the valuable medical supplies. As it turned out, the dolls became one of the most popular donations. ICROSS CANADA continues to stress the “I” in International Community for the Relief of Starvation and Suffering. Izzy Comfort Dolls are known in the far corners of our globe and continue to bring joy to the children of the poor in the 3rd world.
