I just received the summer newsletter for Trigeminal Neuralgia and in it they had a very interesting story about people who knit and crochet small dolls that are then sent to third world countries and given to children suffering from HIV/Aids. If and when the children die, the dolls are buried with them.
The instructions are near the end of the newsletter along with pictures of the dolls. I do not crochet or knit but I thought some of you that do may be interested in making some of these.

I've decided to live forever - so far, so good.

Wow.... Violet, what adorable little dolls and what a wonderful project. I have copied and pasted and sent the story to my daughter in hopes that she gets her college friends together in a club to make these.
