I love companies that help us do a little extra good when we purchase their products, like TOMS shoeswhich each have “buy one, give one” business models. And now I’ve discovered a line of adorable new handknit dolls called cuddle + kind that not only will make our kids squeal from the cuteness, but also help combat child hunger in the US and around the world by providing meals to children in need.
Created by Canadian husband-and-wife team Jen and Derek Woodgate, cuddle + kind’s nine colorful knit dolls have a worthwhile mission. Each purchase will provide ten meals to kids who would otherwise go hungry, through partners World Food Program USA and the Children’s Hunger Fund. Each doll even comes with a little cloth bracelet attached to remind the recipient of this extra kindness.
The super-colorful characters include a pair of ice-cream loving reindeer, brightly smiling mermaids, and nattily attired bunny rabbits, all with colorful accessories like glasses, hair bows, scarves, and hats attached. Because each accessory is sewn into place, they are safe for even younger kids too! Each doll can come in both 20″ or 13″. Personally, the little dolls are my favorite as they are not so overwhelming for Lily to tote around with her when we are on the go.
If you’re looking to help support a worthy cause that not only brings joy to your child’s face but will help bring a smile and food to those that need it most, please considering purchasing one of these dolls for your own child, a baby shower gift or someone that loves paying it forward as much as myself.
