HappyDoll at Change the World Fair!

Last Friday, our good friend, Brooke Johnson, invited HappyDoll to participate at her company's volunteer fair!

You may know Scripps Networks as one of the largest lifestyle media company that delivers channels like the Food Network, the DIY Network and the Cooking Channel, but we have also discovered that they are a company committed to making a positive change in society.

Their company event entitled  "CHANGE THE WORLD FAIR" supports national, regional and local organizations to better the quality of life and support those at risk or in need. Over 50 employees gathered  to roll up their sleeves and donate their time to learn and support the visiting organizations.

We had the honor of joining other orgs such as The Family Center (www.thefamilycenter.org) and God's Love We Deliver (www.godslovewedeliver.org).

We started the day at their "creative" office in Chelsea Market. What a fun and beautiful office they have!
 

The Food Network Kitchens had a bake sale with sweet treats from the new Cupcake app to benefit Share Our Strength, a non-profit combating child hunger in America. 

 Mmm...Special Food Network cookies and cupcakes fresh out of the kitchen.

We received comments from participants saying that this was a great way to take a break from their computers and catch up with their colleagues.

Brooke, the President of Food Networks, also stuffed a doll. Thanks, Brooke!

Everyone was so friendly, and very excited to be part of the project.  We even received requests to let the volunteers know when and where their dolls travel!

In the afternoon, we continued the event at the  Scripps headquarter office in midtown.  We had a blast togetherlaughing, talking, and stuffing to make a difference in the world, one doll at a time.

Brittini here will tell you what the event was like:
