About The Butterfly Ministry for girls
Helping little girls in the foster care system by using a historical, American Girl doll.
Our Ministry is based on the belief that children, especially little girls are of the utmost importance.
It is the mission of The Butterfly Ministry for girls to show comfort and love during what could be a difficult transition in young girls’ lives.
This Ministry is offered as a service to our community and in hopes that using a doll will touch lives. We further offer this ministry to show these young ladies that someone cares.
The Butterfly Ministry accepts damaged, used or new American Girl dolls in honor of the Butterfly Girl. If they are in need of repair, they will be sent to the American Girl Hospital in Atlanta, GA. Cash donations will also be accepted to help repair dolls, or to purchase used and new dolls.
We also collect new and used American Girl books.
All dolls will be issued to little girls that meet the qualifications of The Butterfly Ministry based on need and/or agency referral. Dolls can bring comfort to little girls in times of darkness; they so often have to adjust to new surroundings in a short period of time.
Maybe your children or grandchildren once experienced the love of these dolls but no longer use them. This is where you can help. You can make a difference.
This ministry has been set up to ensure that joy is brought to the lives of others. We are committed to serving God and the needs of precious, little girls.
Have you or your business ever wanted to get involved with something worthwhile or that would have a positive impact on others? Here is that opportunity.
We aspire to provide comfort, love and prayers to these children. We can help strengthen each person’s confidence and joy in Jesus Christ — at every point in their lives — and encourage personal and spiritual growth through prayer,
“Give a Dollar or Give a Doll” — because little is much when God is in it! Nothing is too small if you are giving with your heart.
Butterfly, you touched our lives and will not be forgotten.
A little girl came into our lives as a participant of an on-going program at a local library. There we help to teach history with the use of the American Girl historical doll series. She was a beautiful little girl with brown hair and eyes who loved butterflies. This little “butterfly girl,” as we called her touched our hearts and had a tremendous impact on our lives. She loved the American Girl dolls and the chance to interact with the characters and their American history stories, yet she never had the chance to have one of her very own.
In March 2011, our little butterfly died in an automobile accident. As leaders of the program, we decided to start a non-profit organization in her memory to give American Girl dolls to other children in need.
Lessie – My daughters and I have decided that we are on a mission to help this organization. Along with our Girl Scout troop we are going to collect as many donations as possible and make a delivery to their new office. Any donations can be mailed to:
