Birthday: January 31st
I come from a deep green forest with tons of trees to climb and delicious bamboo to eat. I might look different than most bears, but I love that I’m like no one else! Standing out in the crowd means we can show the world how amazing we are, won’t you join me?
Favorite quote: “Be proud of who you are."
Goal: To provide 1 million meals a year.
1 doll provides 10 meals to children in North America and around the world.
Design in Canada / Lovingly handmade in Peru
We created cuddle+kind because we wanted to make beautiful hand-knit dolls that help feed children. So for every cuddle+kind doll sold, we give 10 meals to children in need.
There's nothing we love more than being parents. We think nurturing our three children is the most important, rewarding and sometimes challenging job in the world!
With a background in health, we recognize the crucial role nutrition plays in a child's development. As parents, we believe all children should have enough food to eat and the opportunity to thrive, so when we saw a documentary on the devastating impact of childhood hunger on millions of children around the world, it inspired us to help. On that day, we decided to start a company whose purpose is to help improve the lives of children and to make a difference.
We're proud that our dolls are made with natural, high-quality cotton because it's important to us that they're safe, soft and cuddly.
We're also super proud that every doll is lovingly handcrafted by incredible women artisans in Peru, providing them with a sustainable, fair trade income.
