Give Five

It doesn’t take much to put a smile on a child’s face, and this week, Dolls for Daughters, the Denver non-profit providing holiday toys and gifts to underprivileged children, is proving that even the smallest contributions count. In honor of what would have been Kenzi Bachus’ 5th Birthday, Dolls for Daughters (founded by Kenzi’s mom Jessica after giving birth to the stillborn baby at just 24 weeks) is holding its aptly named “Give Five” campaign. Through this Friday, January 27th, the group is asking us to open our hearts and wallets by donating just $5. Each donation will provide stocking stuffers to five children at the annual Dolls for Daughters Toy Shop this December. To sweeten the deal, local hand and baby bag line JP Lizzy is offering 15% off its entire collection this week only, and is donating $5 from every bag purchased directly to Dolls for Daughters. A sweet partnership indeed, it goes to show that mothers are each other’s biggest cheerleaders. Years ago, JP Lizzy founder and designer Wendy Barry gave birth to her twins, John Patrick and Emma Elizabeth, ten weeks early. While Wendy was fortunate enough to eventually bring her babies home, Jessica Bachus was not. Overcome with grief, she channeled her tragedy into what today is Dolls for Daughters, one of Denver’s fastest growing non-profit organizations. With support of fellow moms like Wendy, businesses like JP Lizzy and everyday folks like you and me, Dolls for Daughters honors Kenzi’s memory by giving back to children in need.
