Reviews for Dolls For Daughters And Kenzis Kidz

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an incredible organization that provides extremely valuable benefits to kids in Colorado. Jessica, the founder has truly found a way to turn every parent's worst nightmare into something she and her family can be proud of. Kids who otherwise wouldn't have a new backpack for school or Christmas gifts under the tree benefit from Dolls for Daughters...and that's only the beginning.

I am a current board member circling into my 4th year. Dolls for Daughters is responsible for 1000s of smiles year round. The toy shop on the first Saturday of each December, is a blowout event and always draws large crowds - independent of the weather. I'm thrilled I am a board member because I'm made to feel what I do makes a difference to the organization and to the community. Jessica Bachus is the heart and soul of the organization and her passion drives us to keep breaking records. Jessica is available, hands on, and wears a patented smile. Take the time to read her story to understand how she shifted from sore to soaring. What sets Jessica apart from her peers? She does what others only talk about. Take the step to connect with Jessica. She's a tremendous role model; an innovator, passionate entrepreneur, mom, wife, daughter, and trusted friend. Jessica is waiting to hear from you.

This is a great organization that I am happy to donate my time to. As a volunteer I have helped to get donations, participated in fundraisers, and worked at the First Annual Toy Shop held in December 2010.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

getting to see the joy and excitement of all of the children who came into the Toy Shop for their gift. Also, it was great to see the gratitude that so many of the parents/grandparents had for the event.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

want to make sure that more people in need are aware of this organization. And also that more people who can give time, money or other donations are aware so they could donate to them.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching children and their families pick toys for Christmas they wouldn't have had.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand it!

I first heard about Dolls for Daughters the Christmas Season in 2007. When I heard about Jessica's story my heart was truly touched. After participating in the events for Dolls for Daughters, such as their Bowl-a-Thon and Dolly Tea Party I was asked to join the board for the 2010 year. Dolls for Daughters is very close to my heart. This past season we gave away over 4,000 toys to underprivileged children. Watching those kids get to pick out a gift that they weren't going to get otherwise without our organization touched my heart. Nothing could replace those smiles I saw that day.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I experienced boys and girls getting to pick out a toy, that they probably weren't going to get this holiday season.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find a way to get enough money raised to get a venue that Dolls for Daughters could host all of their events!

I have been associated with Dolls for Daughters and Kenzi's Kidz since its inception in 2007. I currently serve as the Vice President & Treasurer on the Board. In just a few short years the organization has grown and in 2010 we gave away over 4,500 toys to children in our community. I am very passionate about Dolls for Daughters because we serve our LOCAL community and we help so many children in need! Seeing the smiles on the faces of the underprivileged children we serve is heartwarming and brings me to tears.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the children pick their toys at the holiday toy shop. Many of the children have never had a new toy and for them being able to pick a brand new toy to take home is something they may never experience again.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find the perfect fundraising director to support the organization.
