About Dolls for Daughters
Dolls for Daughters was founded in 2007 after Jessica Bachus’ daughter Kenzi was stillborn at 24 weeks. Overcome with grief, Jessica felt compelled to channel her emotions into something that would honor Kenzi’s memory. Dolls for Daughters was created so that Jessica and her family could provide dolls to young girls at Christmastime who would otherwise go without. The program has expanded to include toys for both boys and girls.
