“I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty”.
2 Corinthians 6:18
“To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God the Father – to him be glory and power forever and ever”
“I ask that we love one another. And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love”
2 John 5-6
“Since you are God’s children, God has also made you heirs”
As parents, we were shocked by the statistics of how many underpriveleged children live across Australia.
We saw how much our own children had and wanted to make a difference in the lives of children who have very little. The more we learnt the more we were inspired to do something. According to the Salvation Army, around half a million Australian children will go without a gift this Christmas. If these children aren’t getting a gift in December, then the reality is they may not be getting any gifts throughout January-November.
Maryann Webb is the founder of Project KIN.
After the birth of her first daughter, Maryann taught herself to sew. For the next three years that followed she ran Little Cotton, an online handmade store which saw her make children’s clothing, kids décor as well as dolls. Maryann became quite passionate about doll making, however at the same time she was less passionate about making dolls for sales. She felt a strong desire and call on her life to do something greater with a more meaningful purpose.
During a season of prayer and bible reading, Maryann was hit with the dream that is now Project KIN.
Her mission is to create dolls with a purpose to reach children who may be living in poverty, loneliness, abandonment and sadness. Her hope is that these dolls would be much more than just a toy. Maryann’s vision is that they would carry a message of love, hope and friendship.
The other part of her vision is to see women, both young and old, empowered through volunteering with us. That grandmothers, aunts, mothers, wives, sisters, nieces, daughters and friends would join us on this journey and that through their involvement they too would feel the love, hope and friendship this project carries.
Maryann’s prayer is that this tiny mustard seed of an idea would grow into a fruitful ministry, touching the hearts of many children and women here in Australia and one day around the world.
All kids ought to feel loved and valued
All kids should be able to play and learn
