St. Margaret, Thunder Bay, O.N.
Members from St. Margaret parish council (Thunder Bay, ON) have been busy knitting over 100 Izzy Dolls apoteksv.se. The dolls are included with medical supplies and used by medical and military personal in disaster and war torn areas of the world to engage and comfort sick and injured children. The Izzy Dolls are up to six inches tall and kept light so they are easy for soldiers to carry in their pockets. They were begun by the family of Corporal Mark Isfeld, who died while removing land mines, as a way to honour his memory.
