HappyDoll works to support children in challenging circumstances by providing a uniquely designed doll in exchange for a blank doll that they can specially design for the next child in need. To date, we have sent over 3,500 dolls to children in nations such as: China, Colombia, Ghana, Haiti, Honduras, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Japan, Kenya, Myanmar, Senegal, Singapore, South Africa, Uganda, Vietnam, and across the United States.
We want children to know that they can make a difference in the world, and improve the lives of other children simply by love, generosity, and compassion.
HappyDoll.org provides the materials, cleaning, shipping and tracking of the dolls. The organization was founded in January 2011 by Nozomi Terao and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization under the United States Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
