FBF Doll Request - OTHER COUNTRIES Region

NOTE: This form is for doll requests for children who live outside the US, Canada, Australia/New Zealand, and Holland. If you need to request a doll for a child within one of the countries listed above, please visit http://fbfdolls.org/request-a-doll/ and choose your specific country.

Please fill out this form completely and send the photos as requested below to Angela Jones, the Continental Crafter team admin, at FBFdolls.other@gmail.com.

Feel Better Friends dolls are 100% donated to children who have cancer or other illnesses. As you can imagine, there is a high demand for these comforting dolls. The Feel Better Friend team of volunteers will do everything we can to get your FBF doll to his or her new home as soon as possible, but please allow several days, weeks and sometimes months for us to create your custom doll. If you feel that your situation is a rush, please let us know, and we’ll do everything we can to get it to you sooner. For questions, comments or donation information please visit www.FBFdolls.org

    *Please Provide at least 2 photos of the child as requested below.*

    Send one close-up portrait showing eye and hair color, and any other unique characteristics such as dimples, freckles and beauty marks. The second photo should be a full body shot showing the child from head to toe in a favorite outfit. Additional photos are welcome. Please feel free to share photos that represent the child's illness or health issues. This is a great way for the doll maker to have a visual to best represent the child's needs in their FBF doll. Please name the photos as the child's name and send them to FBFdolls.other@gmail.com.

    Feel Better Friends Policy & Disclaimer

    The Feel Better Friend project is composed of a group of volunteers who freely give their time and resources to helping sick children that find themselves surrounded by doctor's visits and hospital stays. Our administrators monitor e-mail accounts, websites, and they process applications in order of submission. We will not fill a request without an acknowledgement that you have read this document and agree to release us from responsibility from any possible injury that your child may receive from using this product.

    How We Arrange for a Feel Better Friend for Your Child

    1) An administrator will send out an e-mail acknowledging your request and will give you an estimated time frame of your waiting list time. 2) An administrator will work to locate a Feel Better Friend volunteer for you. This can take time, so please be patient! Feel Better Friend custom-made dolls are in high demand at the moment. 3) Volunteers will hand-craft a custom made doll, just for your child. If at all possible, the volunteer will include medical equipment or health issues such as leg braces, scars, trachs, G-tubes, NG-tubes, boots and bars, and even wigs!! To keep this process moving smoothly, we encourage you to check your emails frequently during this time period... volunteers may be asking you specific questions to make sure your custom-made doll is JUST right for your child! We understand that your time is very limited, especially with doctor's visits and hospital stays, but please respond to, or at least acknowledge, any emails you receive from the volunteer as quickly as you can. 4) The Feel Better Friend is then shipped to you.

    Feel Better Friend Processing Time

    Please be patient with us while you are waiting for your child’s Feel Better Friend. The full process might take 3-4 weeks, or even 3-4 months, depending on the length of the specific region's waiting list. Sometimes, we are lucky and can get your child's new friend out sooner, but there are no guarantees. Sometimes, it can take even longer. We do our very best to make the kids wait no longer than around 4-6 weeks, but again, there are NO guarantees. If you feel your child needs the doll sooner, please be sure to explain that this is a rush request in the form above, and the administrator for your region will make every effort to get your child a new friend as quickly as possible.

    Feel Better Friend Limitations

    Donated Feel Better Friends are given once in a lifetime. If your child’s medical equipment or health issues change and you would like a new Feel Better Friend, you may purchase a custom made doll from a list of our volunteers that have businesses outside of their work with this organization. Please contact fbfdolls@gmail.com for a list of these volunteers. You can also be on the lookout for our annual Amigurumi Auction Fundraiser, another resource to purchase one of these beautiful custom-made dolls for a great cause!! Feel Better Friends are intended for children that are physically ages 16 and under.

    Shipping Costs

    To pay for shipping costs and any optional donation amounts for your child’s Feel Better Friend, you can head on over to http://fbfdolls.org/get-involved/donate/ Since this is paid to PayPal directly, your credit card number is not given to us. It is very safe and you do not need a PayPal account to do it.

    Additional Donations

    It’s easy to make a donation to Feel Better Friends! Although we do not sell Feel Better Friends, we will accept monetary or supply donations if parents choose to make them. Monetary donations are used solely to help cover shipping costs for volunteers to send out Feel Better Friends. Supplies are distributed evenly among our volunteers that are in need and unable to afford materials. Donations are not necessary to receive a Feel Better Friend for your child, but we accept them to continue helping our volunteers! We do have 501c3 non-profit status. Please let us know at the time of your donation if you need a receipt.

    Thank you for your request! Please remember to send the photos at this time. Save the files as the child's name and email them to FBFdolls.other@gmail.com
