We are teaming up with our lovely Facebook fans to find some deserving, but sometimes forgotten, “darlings” who could benefit from the comfort of a doll friend this holiday season. This year’s donation will feature the adorable Baby Doll Elli, star of the hugely popular Maytag “Tea For Two” commercial.
If you have a charity or organization that is close to your heart, nominate them on the Oompa Toys Facebook page by simply stating the organization’s name, its website, and why you think it deserves Elli Dolls. Please make sure your organization fits the below guidelines before nominating! Be sure to encourage your friends and family to “like” your nomination. At least four organizations that follow the guidelines and receive the most “likes” will receive up to 50 Elli Dolls each! Winners will be announced in the evening on Thanksgiving Day.
Oompa’s co-president Sandra Gunthorpe says, “We will give until we don’t have anymore to give! Thank you Oompa Fans for helping us put some smiles on a few cute little faces — because the toys you give a child matter!”
