I know I talk sometimes about unique dolls. I am fascinated with them & of course am a kid at heart.
As I was browsing Etsy one day, I found some really cute ones that struck me.
I wasn’t even looking under something obvious like “made under dolls” or reborn dolls, I happened to find these just doing a search of transplant gifts.
What I found were True Jewels Dolls.
Angela Palmer makes & sells these (along with her daughter) to raise money for her niece’s lung transplant.
Her niece is 30 & has Cystic Fibrosis & there’s a link to the GoFundMe page from the Etsy store.
But I just thought this was a very cute, & very awesome & creative way to raise funds.
The dolls also come wrapped, so they are nice if someone is giving it to someone as a gift after a transplant or just in general, they don’t have to worry about dust or exposure.
After even a bit more research, I found her Twitter handle, which has a timeline of both past & present dolls.
Some of these are so very adorable. They even sell accessories & clothes for the dolls too.
I thought it was something unique to share & pass along in the hopes of raising more sales but also in sharing enjoyment of these cute works of art.
So now you know why I had to adopt Hope. She was just too adorable to resist.
I also gave one to one of my transplant buddies as a pick me up during a bump in her recovery.
