In 1989, a special project was begun as a way to thank donors who contributed $1,000 or more annually to Any Baby Can. Hence, the Annual Doll Campaign was born. Each year one child is selected to serve as the model and namesake for the Annual Doll Campaign. The child and his or her family represent all children and families served by Any Baby Can.
When the child has been selected and a doll has been handcrafted in their likeness, members of the staff go into the community and ask individuals, organizations, businesses and foundations to “adopt’ this doll for a $1,000 donation. Each contributor then receives a symbol of the children they are helping: a one-of-a-kind porcelain doll. At the completion of this campaign, contributors are presented with the Doll during the “Adoption” Luncheon held at the Historic Menger Hotel. This tradition has endured for 25 years and is very important to our fundraising efforts.
