Mission: Our inspiration for Molly's Babies was my own beautiful granddaughter Molly, who passed away at 6 weeks old and will never get a chance to care for own baby doll. We wanted to honor her short but beautiful life by doing something meaningful for little girls in her name. So Molly’s Babies was born. Molly's Babies are special baby dolls -- some new, some gently used -- all lovingly cleaned and redressed by our volunteers to be given to little girls -- little Mommies -- all over the country who don't have a baby doll to hold and care for. Molly's Babies all come with a Birth Certificate and a gift card to the new "Grandparents" explaining Molly’s Babies and our Mission. And depending on availability, the dolls will come with accessories which may include things such as bottles, blankets, toys, and/or hats.
Results: We have given out baby dolls so far. we have spent most of our time getting Molly's Babies up and running.
Target demographics: Low-income, children 0 to 12

I have watched Founder, Mary Blake build Molly's Babies for several years. She has contacted me often for advice about her website and other start-up issues. Starting a non-profit isn't easy, and growing it is harder yet -- I know because I serve on the Boards of three non-profits and work for another. I know that it takes a truly dedicated person at the helm to do what it takes to make things work as they should -- and Mary is one of the most dedicated and sincere. Molly's Babies is very special to her .... it represents a promise she made while grieving over the loss of her darling granddaughter Molly, who would never know the joy of playing with a baby doll. Mary couldn't change that for Molly; but she felt inspired to make it her mission to provide baby dolls to other little girls whose parents couldn't buy them one, or who have no family. This, and only this, is her mission. She isn't looking for accolades, nor money for herself. She's actually invested a good bit of her own money, time, talent and skill to make this dream for little girls a reality. I have given my financial support, and hope that you will do the same. This is one non-profit and cause that you can feel good about. Christmas is coming, as it does every year .... and little girls have birthdays all year long .... some families need a little extra help to make those days special for them. You can be sure that Molly's Babies will make that happen for as many little ones as possible. -- Carol Daly
