Happy Labdoo!

Our dearest friends, Jordi (founder of labdoo.org) & his wife Laia There are moments when you meet someone and feel a spark, a rush of excitement, an instant connection.  When we first met our friends, Jordi and Laia, that is exactly what we felt.

Since then, our friendship turned into a collaboration with Labdoo.org, an organization that Jordi founded in Barcelona to deliver excess laptops to children in developing countries by using grassroots social networking tools.  Through this project, our HappyDolls traveled to children in Nigeria and Dominican Republic!

In January, Jordi and his wife, Laia, surprised us with the news that they will be living in  New York for a few months. We were ecstatic, and Laia joined us many times as a volunteer at our stuffing sessions.  Sadly, it's time for our friends to return to Spain, but we won't say good bye just yet since we know we will see each other again very soon.

The couple has given us a lovely parting gift--a panel of pictures of the collaboration. Message on the panel: "Thank you for spreading joy around the world and for all the wonderful collaborative work."

A big thank you to Jordi, Laia, and Labdoo.org. We can't wait to collaborate with you again.

Bon voyage and see you soon!

Stay tuned because we’ve got more exciting news coming your way…
