In less than 3 hours, the brother of MilSO Box enthusiast @juliejigsaw will begin a 24 hour live stream to promote veteran suicide prevention. For those 24 hours, MilSO Box will support this mission by changing its link in bio to his link for donations. Here is what he says: This Thursday night, or Friday morning if you will (9/22), starting at midnight, I will be livestreaming on https://www.twitch.tv/nxgnick for 24 hours straight in support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Over the years we have made significant strides as a society in better understanding mental health and we would never be able to do this without foundations such as the AFSP. Along with providing aid and resources to those affected by suicide, the AFSP also raises awareness and funds scientific research about mental health issues. The AFSP funds research to improve interventions, train clinicians in suicide prevention, and advocate for policy that will save lives. As someone who has struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts, this is something that means a lot to me and I hope that through this event I can help spread awareness and that my friends and family can help me reach my fundraising goal of $250.00 (all donations go directly to the foundation). If you're someone who struggles with depression, suicidal thoughts, or any other mental issues, I urge you to talk to someone. I can't stress enough how important it is to not keep it bottled up inside. My friends and family were there for me, and there's no reason they won't be there for you. Hope to see you this Friday.

For those who have asked, I just posted four new dollies on my shop, including this one which is a current fave. It's always interesting to me that no matter how many times I cut out, sew and stuff the same pattern and try to draw and stitch a similar face, they all look so different. This is a throw back to some of my earlier dolls with gray eyes and the cotton jersey hair in place of yarn. I forgot how much fun the jersey hair is- it's so nice and stretchy and easy to style in lots of ways. I gave her extra long hair for fun and I also gave her wardrobe a bit of a Christmas flair with the green dress and rust colored cowl.
I also like to remind folks that although these dolls look more like China dolls, they are really very sturdy- made out of good quality cotton and even machine wash well! My three year old is really rough on hers and it still looks great! Check 'em out! .
