Black Doll Project


The Black Doll Project is more than just black dolls, it’s about ensuring every child has a doll that looks like them. Part of what helps a child flourish is feeling like they belong and your donation can help make that reality. New black, brown, girl, boy, disabled or any other doll is both accepted and appreciated. Thank you for supporting our children.
