Little Dutch supports the Friends of the Sophia Foundation
Friends of the Sophia Foundation
The Friends of the Sophia Foundation is connected to the Erasmus MC-Sophia Children's Hospital and together they strive to better the lives of sick children. We are the ambassador for the Friends of the Sophia Foundation. We immediately did something very special: design a soft doll. Her name: Sophia.
"We came in contact with the Friends of the Sophia Foundation at the Sophia Lichtjesdiner 2018," says Rinke van der Helm, founder and owner of Little Dutch. We were approached with the question whether we wanted to donate a wooden scooter for the auction. When we started to get acquainted personally, I saw how involved people were and I instantly recognized the same in our own team. It felt right straight away. "
"A tour of the departments in the children's hospital touched me enormously. I immediately felt "children here fight for their lives." And in that moment I knew: Little Dutch is going to contribute to the Erasmus MC - Sophia Children's Hospital. ”
Pajamas and slippers
“I took our doll Rosa with me to our first meeting and there I saw the mascot of the Sophia, the girl in the yellow dot pajamas, as well. The idea for the Sophia doll was born. Back at the office we immediately started sketching and drawing and we brought the mascot to life. The Sophia doll has received some adjustments. Instead of the pants, we put a pajama dress on her and underneath the rabbit slippers. She embraces the well-known superhero monkey toy from the Sophia Children's Hospital in her arms. "
Being healthy is not given
“A sick child has a lot of impact on the family. That is why the work of the Friends of the Sophia Foundation is so important. We support the Foundation by marketing the Sophia doll, of which part of the proceeds will go to the Sophia Children's Hospital. The Sophia doll is available from January 3, 2020 for € 17.95 in (web) shops all over Europe and also in the Friends of the Sophia webshop. The doll has a charity label, comes with a clear message and is packed in a giftbox with a hospital theme. We hope to create more awareness: good health is not a given. Everyone can contribute to this wonderful charity! ”
