Dolls for Daughters and Kenzi's Kidz works to support underprivileged children and their families in Colorado by providing toys, food, and more during the holidays, school supplies and clothing during the school year, and assisting families through community outreach, financial planning, and professional support
Dolls for Daughters was founded in 2007 after Jessica Bachus' daughter Kenzi was stillborn at 24 weeks. Overcome with grief, Jessica felt compelled to channel her emotions into something that would honor Kenzi's memory. With this notion, Dolls for Daughters was created so that Jessica and her family could provide dolls to young girls at Christmastime who would otherwise go without.
Jessica collected over 150 dolls the first year. Since then Dolls for Daughters has come a long way. In 2008, over 500 dolls were collected; in 2009 1,100 and the year Dolls for Daughters and Kenzi's Kidz became a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. In 2010, more than 4,000 dolls and toys were given away to many Denver families. In 2014 Dolls for Daughters provided toys and more to 5,269 children in the state of Colorado. Since 2007 more than 20,000 children in Colorado have been given toys and more from this program.
In 2010 Kenzi's Kidz was launched which is a program that helps relieve the financial burdens of low-income families who are taking the necessary steps to create a stable environment for their children. Kenzi's Kidz gives the children in these families the fundamental items needed to succeed in school, such as school supplies, clothing, extracurricular activities and birthday and holiday gifts for a year. Currently Kenzi's Kidz sponsors five families who qualify for the program.
