Cuddle + Kind
HELP END CHILDHOOD HUNGER NOW!
Today I popped on my onesies and cuddled up with some seriously adorable lil animals to help feed hungry children around the world. I stumbled across these precious “fair trade” hand knit dolls on IndieGoGo a few months back and wondered how anyone seeing this campaign could NOT donate! And donated I did….immediately. My Cuddle + Kind dolls arrived a few weeks ago and I must say they are even cuter in person than they were in photos! Now here’s the best part…. for each doll sold…. 10 hungry children will be fed. Buy an adorable hand knit doll and feed 10 children? Does it get any better than this?? Nope! So here’s the skinny….
Cuddle+kind is a for-profit company with giving back at its core. They believe in the power of business to help make the world a better place. Their mission is to help children reach their full potential by providing the nutrition they need to grow, learn and prosper. With our giving business model of 1 doll = 10 meals, we are able to give to children in need sustainably, without relying on fundraising.
How do you give 10 meals? We provide meals through our incredible Giving Partners, World Food Program USA and Children’s Hunger Fund.
*World Food Program USA works to solve global hunger, building a world where everyone has the food and nutrition needed to lead healthy, productive lives. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide, reaching more than 97 million people in 80 countries with food assistance last year. WFP provides school meals at an average cost of 25 cents. World Food Program USA builds support for WFP through fundraising, advocacy and education in the United States. www.wfpusa.org
Children’s Hunger Fund (CHF) provides nourishing food for hungry kids across America and around the world. Since 1991, CHF has delivered food and, ultimately, hope to children and families in need in the U.S. and around the world—maintaining 99 percent efficiency for over 20 years. www.childrenshungerfund.org
What exactly is a meal? The contents of the meals we donate vary by country and by Giving Partner. They range from nutritious, complete meals including rice, pasta, beans, vegetables and meat, to nutrient fortified biscuits and date bars depending on the location and program. Our Giving Partners have on-the-ground expertise and know what is needed for each region.
Just in time for Christmas…. Give a doll…. Feed hungry children.
