The Giving Doll

Founded in 2006, The Giving Doll has expanded to include groups in a number of states making and giving dolls to children in their surrounding communities.

The Giving Doll was created and copyrighted by Jan Householder in March 2006, as a community volunteer project, when a friends daughter (Katherine) became a patient at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Handmade cloth dolls were constructed by volunteer sewers, and Katherine took the first dolls to the hospital, when she went for treatments. As other needs became apparent, the program expanded to include children in a variety of settings worldwide.

In 2009 The Giving Doll, Inc. became a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.

Our Mission is to give faith, love, joy, hope and comfort to children worldwide, at times of special need through the construction and distribution of handmade cloth dolls.
