Together, the company + their customers have given 1,151,798 meals to date.
If you enjoy social media, you’ve probably spied the fabulously adorable posts from cuddle + kind. The company makes ethically produced, hand-knit dolls that help feed children.
Every cuddle + kind product you purchase will provide 10 meals to children in need. “Our goal is to provide one million meals a year,” says Jen, Derek, Ethan, Brooke and Rachel Woodgate – the family behind cuddle + kind. And they have.
Reflection of Values
The Woodgates started cuddle + kind to reflect their values. The parents have a background in health, and recognize the crucial role nutrition plays in a child’s development. “As parents, we believe all children should have enough food to eat and the opportunity to thrive,” they say. So they created cuddle + kind to make a difference.
Not only does the purchase of one doll provides 10 meals to children in need, each doll is lovingly handcrafted by incredible women artisans in Peru, providing them with a sustainable, fair trade income. “We’re proud that our dolls are made with natural, high-quality cotton because it’s important to us that they’re safe, soft and cuddly.”
