There are two precious things that we can give our children: one is roots, the other is wings. Cuddle + Kind is an amazing company that we are blessed to be a partner with! When I first heard about the company, I was enamored by the adorableness of the dolls. The variety from mermaid to deer to bunny was too cute. Then I learned that the beautiful hand-knit dolls help feed children- I. Was. Hooked! Every Cuddle + Kind doll sold, provides 10 meals to children in need through a partnership with World Food Program USA (WFP).

According the the website- "We’re proud that our dolls are made with natural, high-quality cotton because it's important to us that they're safe, soft and cuddly. We’re also super proud that every doll is lovingly handcrafted by incredible women artisans in Peru, providing them with a sustainable, fair trade income"
How cool is that!?!?

For every new new Instagram follower in the month of June,  they will donate 1 meal. So check them out!

Ever since the girls opened their package from Cuddle + Kind, it was love at first sight. The girls have been obsessed with their new friends. Vivienne chose Willow, the deer with the ice cream cone. Lulu chose Scout, the deer with the popsicle. And Edith "chose" the pink bunny named Chloe. They are so soft and the perfect size for snuggling. The girl clutch them dearly in their arms as they sleep. Even little Edie loves hugging Chloe's soft body and kissing (aka bitting) her ears haha. They are exactly the heirloom quality that will last. I envision them someday introducing their children to their childhood friends.
