Replace a Dollhouse Lost in Hurricane Katrina

The cost of the dollhouse, furniture, and dolls is $398, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I teach at Washington Elem. School in Kenner, LA. (It's a suburb of New Orleans). In addition to my house and car being lost to Katrina, much of my personal school equipment and supplies were also lost... Among the debris was a cherished dollhouse I used in my classroom for many years. Like and old and trusted friend, that dollhouse was always there when I needed it. It held up well throughout the years. It helped build a bond of trust and respect between me and my students. If problems arouse, using the dollhouse was a way to work toward solutions. It helped my students explain the way they felt when their oral language was not developed enough to thoroughly explain their position. It helped them make choices. It helped me understand my students better. When my dollhouse was used in a center, it was great to see the students engaging in cooperative play, developing different scenarios for the dollhouse people. Sometimes, these scenes could be quite touching and sometimes quite hilarious. It was great fun to see their imaginations soar. I really miss not having a dollhouse in my class. It will not be replaced by our school system (now) due to the extensive losses/damages to entire schools and school properties during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The freeze on spending is still in effect. I have spent lots of my own money in order get my classroom up and running again. I am going broke... I need assistance... Please help.
