In 2014 we have a lot to celebrate and look forward to!

2013 was a record year for HappyDoll, as we raised over $50,000 and sent over 1,000 dolls (year to date 2,500) to children around the world.

We thank all of our wonderful volunteers, sponsors, ambassadors, and donors--we would not be the same without you and are thankful for the support you continue to provide the organization!

We have a few resolutions we'd like to share with you for this year ahead:

1)  Focus on "communication" and "compassion."

2)  Kick-off an "exchange program" between two schools anywhere in the world.

3)  Begin the distribution of the newly designed HappyDoll, created in 2013 by the students of FIT (Fashion Institute Technology)

4) Reach more children in need.

I encourage you to continue to check happydoll.org, along with our Facebook and Twitter pages, to watch our progress. Together, we can make 2014 a year to remember.

My best wishes for a happy and healthy new year!
