How many times have you seen a news segment or documentary about a life-threatening social issue and right away started to work doing something about it? Your answer is probably the same as mine – pretty much never. It isn’t that we don’t care. It’s just that we aren’t really sure how to have a real impact. Enter Jennifer and Derek Woodgate, creators of Cuddle+Kind, a website that offers the only adorable, handcrafted, knit dolls that help feed children in need.
Dolls That Make A Difference
Jennifer & Derek were watching a documentary about childhood hunger when they were moved to take action and to make it easy for others to join in.
Cuddle+Kind offers 9 absolutely darling knit dolls made by talented Peruvian artists who themselves are benefiting from a sustainable, fair trade income. Each doll is made from natural cotton, is non-toxic, and comes with a powerful bonus – your purchase will provide 10 free meals to children in need in North America & worldwide.
Incredible, isn’t it? When we order a doll we are helping women in Peru sustain themselves and their families financially, and we’re also helping to get much needed food to children everywhere. That’s a pretty exciting purchase, if you ask me.
While you and I will snatch up these dolls for those reasons alone, rest assured your little one will also be thrilled with a colorful 20″ Cuddle + Kind doll to snuggle. The fact is they are just incredibly cute – too cute to be denied. 🙂
There is Isla the mermaid whose motto is: “Throw kindness around like confetti.”
And Benedict, the well-dressed bunny who believes, “The meaning of life is to give life meaning.”
In fact each of the 9 dolls has their own positive world view to share with a new friend. You might expect nothing less from a group of toys who do double-duty as philanthropists.
As the holidays approach, why not order a doll for someone on your Christmas list so Cuddle+Kind can get 10 more meals into the hungry bellies of kids who need them? You can order directly from their IndieGoGo campaign.
PS: You can also purchase Cuddle+Kind 10 x 10 prints that feature one of the dolls along with their favorite quote. Each print purchase will provide 5 meals! Isn’t that a lovely idea?
