Are you able to make a donation to cover the cost of shipping?
We ask for a $7-9 shipping and handling fee for U.S. shipping. International shipping ranges from $10-15. Eligible children will NOT be turned away, but as our volunteers are donating their time and materials, it is sometimes difficult for them to cover the cost of shipping as well. The Feel Better Friends project reimburses shipping for our volunteers strictly from fundraisers and the thoughtful donations of the public.

This message serves to ask you for permission to display printed images of your son/daughter and their Feel Better Friend doll at public events. Please note, we will not use your child's name or any images of your child that do not include their Feel Better Friend Doll. Your response of "yes" will serve as your permission. If you'd rather the project not use your son/daughter's image, please respond with a "no" and we will make a note of this for future projects as well. Thank you!

Your answer
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.AUSTRALIA@gmail.com
