A few weeks ago my dear customer Cassie wrote me a message on Facebook asking if I could do a fundraiser for Autism Awareness month and I thought it was a great idea. Many of us here at Bamboletta and I know many of you in the Bamboletta community are affected by Autism. Now, I know that April is Autism awareness month but sometimes I end up in a doll making time warp and got my dates mixed up and totally thought May was. Duh! Anyhow, to raise awareness and funds for the entire month of May I will be donating $10 from every rainbow hair doll  (both vibrant and pastel rainbow) that is sold by Bamboletta. This week will have a few rainbows but we are trying hard to make a LOT of rainbow dollies – so stay tuned! I will keep a running tally and will announce our total by the end of the month. I didn’t realize this at the time but our friends over at Riley Blake (we <3 them!) designed a fabric line that will have a significant amount of the profits going to Autism Speaks! Way to go Riley Blake!

Speaking of fundraising stuff – in a few weeks I will be holding a special auction to benefit my son’s school. I did this last year as well and it’s something I can do to help support our small independent school. Some moms bake cookies .. I auction dolls (and believe me – no one would want me to bake cookies .. I’m a terrible baker!) I’ll host this on Hyenacart and will give advance notice. I think I will do 10 dolls this time, all with clothing sets – it will be fun!

    Your so awesome! I love the pastel rainbow LBs and it would be even better if buying my daughter a doll helped someone else. Baby Avery and her family has touched my heart In so many ways over the last few weeks. It would be awesome if you considered doing something in honor of baby Avery and SMA.
