Last week we launched the first round of our You’re A Doll Kindness Challenge and asked grown-ups to nominate the kind children in their lives. All we can say is WOW!
The stories shared were inspirational and adorable. You are all such great parents, caretakers, and role models because your daughters, nieces, and friends are undoubtedly growing up to be such amazing people. We were so touched by the thoughtfulness, generosity, and kindness shown by children everywhere.
Trust us when we say that it was very difficult to choose just one winner. That being said... drum roll please!
You're A Doll Kindness Challenge Winner
The winner of our very first You're A Doll Kindness Challenge is...
Abigael's mom nominated her in our You're A Doll Kindness Challenge by sharing an amazing story. Check it out:
"My daughter Abigael is in Girl Scouts- when I asked her what she wanted to do for the year ahead she said she wanted to collect socks for the homeless! So her own Socktober was born! She made announcements at school and made a box for collections. We were able to deliver 618 pairs of socks! We are still trying to figure out a way to collect donations during Covid but we know every little donation helps!"
See? We told you Abigael's story was amazing. Her prize for being so kind was a Playtime by Eimmie doll of her choice. Abigael chose Kaylie because she loves her pigtails! She'll now have a new best friend to play with and inspire.
