Giving Back with Hand-knit Dolls from Cuddle + Kind

A beautiful couple with a beautiful mission: to make sure that every child has a chance to eat nutritional food. The owners of Cuddle + Kind offer hand-knot dolls that are ethically made for sale, but the catch to this company is they’re helping feed children. Yes, I said it. Cuddle + Kind gives 10 meals to children in need for every 1 hand-knit doll purchased from their store.

This amazing company is living proof that there are many caring people in this world ready to do their part to make a difference. Cuddle + Kind has a simple mission to provide one million meals to kids all over the world each year. Since starting Cuddle + Kind in September 2015 this couple has been able to gift over 8 million meals to children all over the world.

About Cuddle + Kind
Each doll is hand-knit using only the highest quality cotton so that the dolls are not only cuddly but they’re soft and safe for small hands. These dolls are not only giving meals to children in need, but they’re made by women artisans in Peru which are helping the creative women in Peru have a sustainable, fair trade income.

There’s loads of goodness with Cuddle + Kind. This couple certainly has been able to create a sustainable business model that helps women in Peru earn a living all the while providing loveable hand-knit dolls to children and feeding children in need.

Finding this one company that seems to be giving back tenfold was rather surprising and admirable. I love that the mission of Cuddle + Kind, plus their hand-knit dolls are so adorable!

Cuddle + Kind Dolls
Whether you’re looking for hand-knit dolls, gift baskets or inspirational prints, Cuddle + Kind is here to serve you. Their hand-knit dolls come in a variety of options that work well as a gift for a boy or girl. They have a llama, a few bears, a unicorn, and so many other options of hand-knit dolls to choose from.

Each doll from Cuddle + Kind has its own name. I happen to adore Maya the Mermaid with her colorful pink tail and Oliver the bear with his “wild” shirt. Each hand-knit doll from Cuddle + Kind comes in two sizes, 20” or 13”. Each hand-knit doll at Cuddle + Kind has a different price, so you’ll want to shop around their store to find the right price and perfect cuddle doll for your little one to enjoy.
I’m confident that we can each purchase just one hand-knit Cuddle + Kind doll for that special child in our life, thus feeding 10 children in need of a simple meal of nourishing food. Check out Cuddle + Kind’s website today to see their extensive line of cuddly dolls today.

    Those dolls are so quirky and gorgeous – there is a small person in my life who would give them (all!) a very loving home. And I love the ethics of the company.

    This is such a great idea and cause! I went on the web site and they really are adorable and look to be well made. My girls are flamingo fans so we’d have to go with Penelope! Love this concept

    Always good to come across organizations like these who care for the needy. The dolls look wonderful and I probably would buy many of them to gift away considering that I would also be contributing in some way for those who need help.
