Dollhouses for a Cause Does it Again

Real Good Toys Victoria’s Farmhouse

Since 2009, The Dollhouses for a Cause Program  at Real Good Toys has flourished and still continues to spark interest in crafty folks to use dollhouses to raise funds for their favorite charities. As I look back on 5 years of applications, I am amazed at the variety of charities and organizations that this program has benefited. As you would expect, we have sent kits to benefit hospitals, schools, libraries, churches, shelters and nursing homes. It is always nice to hear from those involved how their event turned out.

Recently we sold a dollhouse, Victoria’s Farmhouse, to the Dolphin Foundation of South Burlington, Vermont. The SB Dolphin Foundation is dedicated to the sport of youth football in South Burlington, and the Foundation decided to decorate, furnish and offer this dollhouse for auction. The event benefited the Mercy Connection of Burlington, Vermont. They are a non-profit organization whose mission is to focus on educating, mentoring and empowering individuals that have fallen on hard times. Mercy Connection enables people to make significant life changes so they can re-enter society in a responsible way. The Victoria’s Farmhouse was lovingly finished and beautifully furnished with miniatures by René and Linda LaBerge. René is the President of the SB Dolphin Foundation and he tells us that they made a slide show of the finishing and furnishing process. They also distributed Real Good Toys brochures to everyone who bid on the dollhouse. This Real Good Toys dollhouse was considered the talk of the event ,which was attended by over 300 people. René and Linda said, ” We are proud to have participated in the fundraiser for such a worthy organization and really appreciate your help in making this all possible. Thank you very, very much.”
