My newest doll donation

She's finally done! The special donation doll I have been working on. This is Mary Kay. She is a 100% donation to the Mary Kay foundation. The foundation funds research into cancers that affect woman as well as domestic violence programs. As I mentioned in a previous blog my Mary Kay unit is putting on a fund raiser in Springfield, MA called "Pink at the Rink". Last year we raised over $14,000 and this year we want to double it (or more, more is good). The event itself is a hockey game that will take place on March 6th. There will be a special ceremony on the ice before the game honoring cancer survivors. I was not part of Mary Kay last year and didn't attend the event though people who did say the ceremony was very moving.
Many ideas were suggested on how we could raise money (besides selling tickets to the game). They sounded nice but since I am a doll maker I decided I would make a special doll. Everybody needs dolls after all.

Mary Kay Cosmetics is a glamorous company. The independent beauty consultents teach skin care and make-up artistry and make woman feel good. I figured that Mary Kay the doll should be glamorous as well. She has tons of swarovski crystals on her outfit as well as newly designed chaps that I feel are more realistic than the old design. I believe I have created a glamorous doll. She is much lovelier in person. When I asked Ethan what he thought of her he said she was "very sparkly". Photos just don't show how true that is.I'm taking offers on the doll on MH$P until February 21. If you are interested in making an offer please see her ad Also if you are interested in making a donation to the Mary Kay foundation or would like more information you can visit the website at
