What is the most important gift one can give?
Who needs it?
Children, the elderly, those dealing with illness, and everyone in our community
Where can we touch the most hearts?
At our hospitals, libraries, retirement homes, and other public venues.
Those beliefs drive the Little WORLD, a 501c3 charity (donations are tax deductible) with the sole mission of brightening lives in our North Carolina Triangle. The "worlds" are custom made, whimsical, mechanical displays, that can currently be seen at Duke Children's Hospital, the Durham Main Library and each of Durham's four Regional Libraries. The charity receives no compensation from these great institutions. We are spiritual but unaffiliated with any religion or any other organization or cause.
There is so much more to do; we need fresh displays at our current locations, and for each current venue there are ten more children's, cancer, or veterans hospitals, centers for the elderly, libraries and schools. So we are asking for your help. We have no paid staff and every tax deductibe dollar or used toy donation goes to helping others.
Here's a proposal... Explore a bit further and perhaps you'll want to help us. No dollar donation is too small and you can also donate used cartoon figurines or Lemax or Dept. 56 products. We also welcome your email comments and ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
