BK students create dolls for orphans
About 400 Brooklyn students created dolls for kids in orphanages around the world.
The nonprofit organization Msterio started the "happy doll" initiative in 2011 and has sent over 5,000 dolls to places like Haiti, India and Hong Kong.
Nozomi Terao, founder of Msterio, says the goal is to learn how to give happiness to others.
Members of the P.S. 195 community say that this act of kindness is exactly what the school stands for.
"We don't just want to think about education success, but how to build a character," says Sabina Singer, of the school's Parents Association. "Especially now around Thanksgiving, it's a perfect time to set an example for our kids."
The whole school is participating and getting a chance to write messages to kids from different countries.
The students' dolls are expected to be delivered to kids in Ghana and Mexico, and the kids will be able to track their doll wherever it travels to.
