American Girl, American Dream


Every American Girl® doll comes with a name and a story from a time and place in American history. For millions of girls, these dolls help them learn about history, while inspiring them to pursue their own dreams.

When the girls grow older, their dreams live on, but the dolls are often put away. And that’s the opportunity that Lauren, a veteran of our Student Leadership Program, wanted to seize.

Putting her growing leadership skills to work, she has founded a program called Adopt-A-Doll that collects gently-used American Girl dolls, gives them a fresh makeover, and then distributes them to girls facing hardship from homelessness, sickness, and challenges at home.

So far, she’s held five “adoption days.” Each one has sent little girls home with their own dolls to comfort and inspire them.

Lauren shows what leadership is all about. We’re very proud of her! You can learn more about her organization at adoptadoll.org and thank you for supporting our Student Leadership Program.
