My Dolls for Change are sold to support educating girls around the world. I hand-sew each doll and donate 60% of proceeds to Droty Uganda, a non- profit that builds bathroom stalls for girls in rural schoolyards around Uganda. This results in hundreds of girls at each school choosing to stay and finish their education rather than dropping out because they get their periods.

Fiber/Decorative (recycled clothing and plastic beans)
