We Believe in Hope

Glimmer of Hope Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization showing girls and boys their strength and beauty through the donation of bald dolls and providing HOPE to families battling childhood cancer and life threatening diseases worldwide.

About Us

Our Beliefs

In a world where people are too often judged for their outer appearance, we aim to make children, teens, and young adults battling cancer feel beautiful in their own skin. We donate bald American Girl dolls of 4 skin tones to girls battling cancer or hair loss. Every girl or boy deserves to have a doll that looks like THEM. Representation is everything. At Glimmer of Hope we value loyalty, love, diversity and kindness. Once your child is gifted a doll or care package, you become part of a family, our “Glimmer” family.

Our Services

Doll Donation

We donate bald American Girl dolls to children battling cancer and hair loss worldwide. We also donate “look alike” dolls or dolls with hair to children battling cancer that have not/will not lose their hair.

Care Package Donation

We donate care packages (typically a $250-$500 value) to boys, teenagers, young adults and children that may not want a doll. Care packages are open to anyone battling cancer or a life threatening diseases, ages 0-26. These care packages include anything from makeup, to toys, diapers, clothing and much more. Each care package is curated specifically for the child based on their likes.

Meal Donation

We sponsor meal donations for the Izzy Room (Izzy Foundation) for the oncology floor at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Rhode Island (Floor 5). Each meal donation provides enough meals for all of the patients and staff on the fifth floor.

“Hope is not pretending that troubles don’t exist. It is the hope that they won’t last forever. That hurts will be healed and difficulties overcome. That we will be led out of the darkness and into the sunshine”
