cuddle+kind – adorable, handcrafted, knit dolls that give back #31DaysOfGifts #giveaway

Stuffed animals and dolls are a favorite gift among kids.  Often, before babies even know what a stuffed animal or doll is, they have at least 1 in their crib or room.

While these are great gifts, it is always fantastic to give a gift that gives back!


cuddle+kind was created by Jennifer and Derek Woodgate from Milton, Ontario.  With 3 young children of their own, they believe that every child should have enough food to eat and an opportunity to thrive. When they saw a documentary on the devastating impact of childhood hunger on millions of children around the world, it inspired them to help.

And that was the day that cuddle+kind was born.

For every cuddle+kind doll purchased, 10 meals will be provided to children in need through the World Food Program USA and the Children’s Hunger Fund.

By contributing to this crowd funding campaign, you will be helping to feed hungry children in North America and around the world.

There is a shelter for women and children in domestic violence situations & they help them to leave and start over so we donate clothes, kitchen items, sheets, ect... as often as we can. We also donate food there also, it's just great how they help these women to start a new & better life!

We donate clothes often (opting for volunteer run shops, instead of places that are for profit.)
