Over 300 dolls donated to little brown girls in need

Every little girl deserves a doll that looks like them no matter their circumstances. Healthy Roots Doll’s mission is to teach little girls to love themselves and their curls. That’s why we partnered with Zoe’s Dolls, a non-profit that donates black dolls to girls in need. 


Healthy Roots Dolls donated 300+ dolls to Zoe’s Dolls. Zoe Terry is the 14-year-old CEO and founder of Zoe’s Dolls, whose mission is to give toys to little girls in need thanks to a generous donation from Chad and Tenah Dyer. Zoe Terry also strives to combat bullying while wanting all little brown girls to know that they are special just the way they are.

Zoe’s mom instilled in her the spirit of giving at a young age when she would ask her to give one of her toys away every christmas. When Zoe Terry was 6, she told her mother that instead of giving a toy away around Christmas, she would give little brown dolls to little brown girls who did not have dolls.

Zoe Terry is passionate about giving to little brown girls because in Kindergarten, she was bullied because of the color of her skin and the kink of her curls. She wants little brown girls everywhere to know that they’re beautiful. 

We look forward to giving to more curlfriends globally in the future. We believe that representation matters and that every child, regardless of personal or financial circumstances, deserves to know that they’re special just the way they are.
