Currently Kelli has created “Buy Black Dolls” campaign to supply at least 150 Barbie and/or Baby Dolls that young Black girls can be able to identity with. This is perfect just in time for Small Business Saturday in November as well as Christmas. Growing up, my mother made it a habit to buy dolls that look like me. From Cabbage Patch Kids, Barbie etc. It’s so imperative that all children should have dolls that reflects their cultural background. The link provided will give more details about the campaign:
