Funding Period: through March 18
Stretch Goal: $200,000
Willowbrook dolls are a group of diverse dolls made up of seven friends in the fifth grade who are intelligent, goal orientated, and outspoken. The girls represent strong role models to encourage the next generation of female leaders.
Cara Morales-Burch, the first of the dolls, is an entrepreneur who loves arts and crafts. With the help of her friends, she starts a business inspired by her latest DIY project. Additional dolls include Mackenzie Hill, who dreams of becoming a senator; Rory Rosenstein, a coder; Maya Martinez, an aspiring neuroscientist; Anjali Shah, who loves to write music; Perry Yu, a comedic writer and hopeful journalist; and Bailey Fox, a sporty girl who wants to be a teacher. The dolls are diverse in personalities, career ambitions, interests, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Each doll has a story told from her perspective.
Kickstarter donations range from $10 to $10,000 and prizes include girl power stickers, The Brookies Build a Business book, Brookies’ bracelets, the Cara Doll, an opportunity to name a story character, and the opportunity to attend an afternoon tea with Neha or attend the Willowbrook Event hosted by Neha. If the stretch goal of $200,000 is met, more Willowbrook Girls dolls will be available by late fall.
