STORY:

Our HappyDoll Ambassador,Yukari Hara, living in Ghana has built a kindergarten in the village of Bognayili where hundreds of children now receive pre-school education. However, the children still live in challenging circumstances often without toys.

Throughout September, HappyDoll will embark on THE GHANA CHALLENGE, a project with a goal to give 500 HappyDolls to the children in Ghana. This will enable every single child in the village school to own a HappyDoll made by you.

We will hand-deliver your dolls in mid-October, so please be sure to send back your doll to our office by October 1st.

How to participate? Go to our Etsy page and donate to receive a HappyDoll to decorate. Please make sure to use the GHANA CHALLENGE PROMO CODE (HappyDollsForGhana) & get 5% off. **If you use this code, your decorated dolls will travel to GHANA once they return to our office**

Deadline: Your dolls must arrive at the HappyDoll office by OCTOBER 1st.

Happy Summer, everyone!

To kick off the summer, we're holding a doll stuffing volunteer session with AHRC on June 7th.  If you're interested in joining us, please get in touch by emailing info@happydoll.org by Thursday (June 6th).

This past weekend was full of excitement. Do you remember our last collaboration with MIKI HOUSE? This event was such a huge success that we were offered to work with them again at Bloomingdale's San Francisco Centre last Saturday!

The decorated dolls were donated to the children at Hamilton Family Center, a non-profit organization that supports healthy development of children and youth experiencing homelessness in the San Francisco Bay Area.

HappyDoll Sister Ambassadors

HappyDoll and MUFG Honor Children of Newtown In January, HappyDoll worked on a collaborative project with The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, UFJ by holding a special HappyDoll session in honor of the victims of the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.  Children of employees decorated 17 beautiful HappyDolls in memory of the young children who had lost their lives.

The dolls sponsored by the employees were generously matched by the bank, enabling HappyDoll to double the number of dolls that will be donated around the world.

Our collaboration with The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, UFJ doesn't end here.  Last summer, we met our volunteer, Kiran Borra, and her two daughters at at the Take Your Children to Work Day hosted by the bank.

 The Borra sisters, Kavya and Nithya, had such a great time stuffing the HappyDolls that they have volunteered to become HappyDoll Ambassadors  by delivering the dolls themselves to children facing hardships.  The sisters will travel to India this summer to visit their parents' homeland and donate the dolls on behalf of the bank. We can't wait to hear what kind of adventure they will have in India!

We are also excited to announce that HappyDoll has been invited by The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, UFJ to participate at their Take Your Children to Work Day again this year.

Stay tuned because we'll follow these young ambassadors and update you on their journey!
