I am a single mother of four awesome kids. Times are hard for everyone and in some cases getting worse. My family has been truely blessed to have recieved the love and generosity of this organization. Dolls For Daughters And Kenzis Kids is an all around family helping group. There is yet to be a need or desire that my family has asked or wished for, which has not been fulfilled. I thank you all for the fun you have provided with birthday parties, a family zoo membership, water world passes, shoes, clothing, dressers and the smiles you have brought my children! God bless all of you, and thanks for showing my family that there are people who care and share with strangers. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!

Helping with the Toy Shop in December was one of the most amazing experiences! I have never seen so many smiles, received that many hugs and heard so much appreciation! Volunteering at this event brought many happy tears to my eyes! =)

I got to know about Dolls for Daughters at the first Tea Party they had. My daughter and I went, we were to bring a doll for donation. I thought what a neat idea! It was there that I had a chance to sit and talk with Jessica, the founder and president.
Her story touched me deeply and I thought how brave this young women was to start such a great charity. She could of chose to sit at home and feel sorry for herself and family with the loss of Kenzi but she didn't. She made something positive of her devastating situation.
I found myself volunteering as much as I could and I have seen what Dolls For Daughters and Kenzi's Kidz has done for surrounding children who aren't as forturnate. I will continue to support them as long as I can!

I got to see the kids walk out with their new presents at the toy shop back in December. There where smiles from ear to ear. I saw parents shedding tears at the thought that some body cared enough to do this. All the hard work was worth it! I'll be there again next year!

It would be nice to have more volunteers through out the year to help the board members.

I have been a supporter of Dolls for Daughters since its inception - not just because Jessica, the founder, is a friend of mine, but simply because Dolls for Daughters provides deserving children in the Denver area a reason to smile at the holidays. I've also been able to volunteer with the organization in the past, and to see the toys being distributed - how touched the mothers are and how excited the children are - is such an amazing and rewarding experience.

When you see how appreciative the recipients of this organization are, you understand how much of an impact Dolls for Daughters makes. It benefits the parent(s) and what they can give their children because of DfD, and more importantly, it benefits the child in receiving a new toy, possibly for the very first time. What a wonderful organization for the Denver community!

I became involved with Dolls for Daughters three years ago when I started working for the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association. Our members were gearing up to collect toys for the Dolls for Daughters program during the holiday season.

I have seen the difference Dolls for Daughters and Kenzi Kidz have made. It's about the smiles. It's about the laughter. It's about the helping families in-need.

I will never forget helping a mother find toys for her child during a Dolls for Daughters Holiday Toy Shop. She shared with me some of the challenges she was facing and what she was doing to overcome those challenges. She told me how much she appreciated being able to come to the toy shop to find that special holiday gift. She said it gave her the chance to celebrate and enjoy the holidays with her daughter.

Increase the number of families in Kenzi Kidz program.

last year I was not able to attend the holiday toy drive but I heard how thankful everyone was. I am looking forward to seeing the children this year and how happy they are to be receiving Christmas presents in their time of need.

I think this organization does an amazing job and I know the people closely involved put in countless hours. I think Dolls for Daughters is rapidly growing and could use more volunteers than ever!

I have attended a silent auction benefiting Dolls for Daughters and I am extremely pleased with the efforts of this homegrown foundation. The event was lively and I felt moved by the sincere passion of the founder and the generosity of the supporters. Having children of my own, I know how one special toy can touch a child's heart...especially when it may be their only toy. Thank you Dolls for Daughters for bringing simple joy to children.

I have been involved with Dolls for Daughters for about the past year. After attending some of the events I started working as the volunteer coordinator last year in October and immediately fell in love with the organization and it's mission! Seeing the success of the toy drive and seeing the smiles on the faces of the children and families touched my heart deeply! I am now volunteering on the Board as the Secretary. I look forward to many years with Dolls for Daughters.
