CRAZY ABOUT CUDDLE AND KIND
Posted on 13 April 2016
Modern Burlap is in love! We recently discovered an incredible new brand, cuddle + kind, and we are totally smitten.
Ran by husband and wife team, Jen and Derek, and with backgrounds in health, these two know the importance that nutrition plays in childhood development. After watching a documentary on childhood hunger one day and learning of the millions of impoverished children around the world, they felt compelled to help. And from there, cuddle + kind was born.
With each too-cute doll that is purchased, cuddle + kind provides ten meals to children in need. Their goal is to provide 1 million free meals a year. 1 million free meals! Can you imagine the impact that 1 million free meals would have on so many children?
Another great thing about the cuddle + kind dolls is that each one is handmade in Peru by women artisans, allowing each woman to provide for her family with a sustainable, fair-trade income. Love that. Each doll is made with a natural, high quality cotton, ensuring that they’re soft, cuddly, and safe. And cuddly they are! We love that each doll has it’s own personality, birthday and favorite quote. We’re partial to Scout the Deer at the MB household and love that his favorite quote is “Follow your heart. It always knows where it’s going.”
We were happily surprised and honored to learn that cuddle + kind recently used a few Modern Burlap swaddles and blankets in a photoshoot and we’re crazy over the adorable photos! We think the cuddle + kind dolls and MB swaddles make a pretty cute pair, if we do say so ourselves!
