01 Dec Giving Tuesday: You + Me = We.
As Giving Tuesday (the national day of giving) approaches, we want to thank you for your support. Together, we’re sparking critical dialogue and change in our families, schools, and communities.
Because of you, we’ve been able to give away almost 200 dolls, donate more than $30,000 to the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer, and provide families all over the country with a framework for discussing issues that make kids and grownups alike scratch their heads in wonder.
Your support has inspired us to create dolls that represent the real issues kids are experiencing in the world today. Your feedback means we now offer boy dolls as well as a much-deserved and totally awesome superhero accessory kit (Even we’re wondering what took us so long!) And thanks to you, we are one step closer to shifting the attitudes and behaviors that will make kindness and caring more common than selfishness and greed. Over these last few months, it’s been our pleasure to engage kids in a dynamic conversation about friendship inspired by our first book, Sam & Dee’s Greatest Treasure. Best of all, we love hearing the stories of the kids who have received one of our dolls. Without a doubt, they receive the message that someone cares about them and wants to understand what is happening in their lives.
On Giving Tuesday, we hope you’ll support one of our partners. We love the Rally Foundation. Their work empowers volunteers across the nation to raise awareness and funds for life-saving childhood cancer research. Two of our Forever We Ambassadors are also hosting Give One programs through our website. You can donate a doll in their honor either to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or the Blume Clinic at Presbyterian Medical Center. Your greatest asset, however, is your influence. Who do you know that would benefit from learning more about Forever We? We’re better together, and together we will be able to build a company that addresses other issues affecting OUR greatest asset–our children.
Will you join us?
We are Forever We.
