Cuddle + Kind
Founded in 2015 by parents of three, Jennifer and Derek Woodgate, Cuddle + Kind creates fair-trade dolls that are hand-knit out of natural cotton by female artisans in Peru. For every doll sold, the company provides 10 meals to children in need. With a background in health, the couple recognized the crucial role nutrition plays in a child's development and as parents, believed all children should have enough food to eat and the opportunity to thrive, which is what drives the brand every day. Since launching Cuddle + Kind, their knit-dolls have helped provide over 8 million meals to children in need.
