Sponsoring Bravery Buddies
One of Olis goals when starting her business was to be able to give back, in particular to other children’s charities. We are pleased to say that because of our customers generous support in purchasing from us we have now been able to donate to our first charity and sponsor 10
Bravery Buddies are a collection of dolls for children who are either battling cancer or who have a loved one with cancer.
These special dolls send the message “you are not alone”. They are inclusive dolls for both boys and girls of different ethnicities created to offer comfort and bring a glimmer of joy to the lives of children affected by cancer.
The Bravery Buddies have no hair, just like a lot of children who are battling cancer. The aim is for the dolls’ physical appearance to help sick kids feel like they’ve got an empathetic friend on their side. To be able to look at their special friend and think, “Hey, you’re just like me.” Children are able to form a bond with their dolls, to share the experience of cancer – to be a friend to them when they need one most.
Oli and her brother Max were so excited to receive their very own Oli Wood branded Bravery Buddy, and had fun taking photos with it and even taking it for a trip to the park 🙂 They were also happy to know that 10 Buddies were on the way to put smiles on other kids faces.
We look forward to sponsoring more Buddies as our business grows, we thank you our customers because without your support this wouldn’t be possible.
