Birthday: July 26th
My favorite thing to do is find a sunny spot, curl up into a ball and dream about fish. For me, life is like opening a great big present every day. That’s what it feels like to meet you! I can tell we have a special friendship – I’m so grateful it makes me purr with joy.
Favorite quote: “Start each day with a grateful heart.”
Goal: To provide 1 million meals a year.
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.
