Peace, Love, Dolls is a nonprofit committed to bringing smiles with toys. We collect donations of used toys, restore them, and donate them to children in need locally as well as across the globe . We donate and restore all kinds of toys to keep them out of the landfill and give them a new life to where they will be loved. Peace, Love, Dolls has worked hard to keep all toys we receive out of the landfill so the ones that unfortunately cannot be saved are sent to Mattel to be recycled and made into new toys. Peace, Love, Dolls got its start in Westminster in 2017 with a humble donation of just thirty dolls to the Department of Health and Human Services and Safe House of Carroll County. Since then, we have expanded on a global scale sending donations to Ghana, Jamaica, and Honduras while also remaining dedicated to our local community here in Carroll County. On a local level we work with the Boys and Girls Club, ConnectandoUS, Shepard's Staff, and Live, Hope, Laugh. In 2020, We also donate to Carroll County Public Schools and individuals who are in need. Peace, Love, Dolls launched a diversity initiative to provide representation of all body types, ethnicities, physical abilities, interests, races, etc. to the children we donate to. This initiative has the goal of fostering a kinder, confident, and more accepting future generation by providing well-rounded, inclusive representation. We have made tremendous progress in working towards our goal by gaining more diverse toys to donate and by providing education on representation and diversity both in person and through social media. As of December of 2023, Peace, Love, Dolls has donated over 6,000 toys. Lastly, in 2022 we gained nonprofit status as a registered 501c3.
