Our HappyDoll ambassador Cosmo from SHH (Students Helping Honduras) took 70 HappyDolls to the kids in Honduras at the end of December. We'll have updates for this project coming soon!

Ila Jean

Ila is our friend who we met through a HappyDoll session with CandleLighters NYC.  She has been battling cancer for 6 years, enduring tough treatments and multiple surgeries.  After finding out that she unfortunately relapsed with a new tumor in December, we sent her a HappyDoll to let her know we are thinking of her.
