So I know I said we’re cutting back on “stuff” for the girls this Christmas, but I don’t think either one of them is ready to celebrate the holiday without a new doll…and these ones actually help support a good cause too!
Hearts For Hearts Girls: You can empower girls to change the world with this charitable doll line from Playmates Toys featuring six authentically dressed dolls from India, Belarus, Laos, Mexico, Ethiopa and the U.S. A portion of each sale goes to World Vision Canada.
Right now, there are six Hearts For Hearts Girls dolls: Lilian (Belarus), Rahel (Ethiopia), Nahji (India), Tipi (Laos), Consuelo (Mexico), and Dell (United States). Each of them has an important story to tell about life in her country, inspired by real girls who are strong, smart, courageous, and determined to rise above challenging circumstances. (My girls will be receiving Lilian and Consuelo for Christmas. While I don’t think we’ll be in Belarus any time soon, the Mexican doll is very appropriate after our March Break trip last year).
When you buy a doll, Hearts For Hearts Girls donates part of the purchase price through their charitable partner, World Vision, to programs that support girls in that country. Whether it’s malaria nets in Africa, schoolbooks in Asia, or food supplies in the US, these programs help girls to thrive and succeed.
And as with most toys these days, each Hearts For Hearts Doll also comes with a special product code for online fun. Once you enter that code and create a user name on the hearts4heartsgirls.com website, you can enjoy all of the online content (like reading the diary of each girl) and activities—for free!
Each doll comes with a friendship bracelet, comb and storybook. I have a feeling these are going to be a huge hit around our place Christmas morning!
