Our Mission of Charity & Hope
The Shadow Buddies Foundation is dedicated to providing support and knowledge to children with severe illnesses and disabilities. The Foundation accomplishes this through unique programs designed to enhance the lives of children and adults by fostering compassion and awareness of differences with our line of 26 condition-specific “Shadow Buddy” dolls. Crafted from muslin and carefully researched to represent a child’s medical or emotional condition, Shadow Buddies offer seriously ill or medically challenged children the companionship of a friend “just like me.”
The mission of the Shadow Buddies Foundation is to provide emotional support through education regarding
illness, disability, or medical treatments. The foundation accomplishes this mission through unique programs
designed to enhance the lives of children and adults while increasing compassion and understanding of
differences. In pursuit of that mission, the foundation will continually raise funds, develop new programs, and
build relationships between organizations with complementary goals.
