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 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.

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 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 became involved with Dolls for Daughters and Kenzis Kids several years ago after meeting Jess Bachus and hearing her story. I was so touched by the way she was able to have the courage to transform a tragedy into a very generous way of honoring her daughter and giving back. My company has been a proud supporter of the organization ever since!

I've had the great pleasure of learning about Dolls for Daughters over the past almost four (4) years. Over time, I've come to understand the love and generosity that led to the creation of the organization, and to witness the passion with which the organization is run. As a group, those individuals associated with Dolls for Daughters are amazing individuals, one and all. They are committed to making children smile that might not otherwise smile as often or with such unrestrained exuberance and utter excitement. Its been a privilege and a joy to watch the organization grow and to know that in doing so, more and more children will be on the receiving end of the love and generosity that is Dolls for Daughters.
