How We Give

Our Promise: for each doll sold a doll will be donated to a child less fortunate.

Why do we donate?

First and foremost, we want to be a company that leads by example. As mothers we know that the example we set for our children is of utmost importance. We pledge to donate one doll for every doll purchased so that children around the world, from every walk of life, can benefit from our kind mission. By teaching through example, we are able to embody the very values that we wish to instill in our children.

Why dolls?

You may wonder how much of a difference it makes to donate a doll to a child who may not have much of anything. You may question whether it will make much of a difference. In truth, it can make ALL the difference. We are passionate in our belief that kindness is as essential as food and water.

While children in orphanages, shelters, and hospitals are fortunate to be provided with their most basic necessities, having a doll, a companion, is sometimes seen as a luxury. Do you remember what your favorite or most cherished childhood toy was? Can you imagine a childhood without any toys? The truth is, toys can nurture a child’s development and lift his or her spirits in incredible ways. And a soft and huggable doll can be there in times of a much needed hug.

It’s a universal truth that kids everywhere love to learn, explore, create, and play. We believe that children everywhere should have these opportunities and that TDK can be instrumental in making this happen.

While TDK dolls serve as a friend and companion to children, we are even more passionate about what our dolls stand for, and the message they teach children everywhere, regardless of background or circumstance. We want children around the world and from every walk of life to understand that no matter how much or how little one may have, we can all be kind.

Where do we donate?

When we founded The Doll Kind, we strongly felt the need to help as many children as we could through our kind mission. While thinking of ideas, we had trouble choosing a particular group of children in need. Some of the questions we asked ourselves included:

Should we donate close to home?

Should we donate abroad?

Should we donate to hospitals? Orphanages? What about children in shelters?

So we thought to ourselves, why pick? Why not donate to unfortunate children everywhere? And that’s exactly what we aim to do. Rather than putting limits as to which children will benefit by location or particular circumstance, we open our doors (and dolls) to unfortunate children everywhere. Together, with the support of your purchase, we will be able to improve the lives of unfortunate children close to home and around the world.
