Share Article

A multicultural family is crowdfunding to produce dolls that encourage young children to appreciate themselves and respect others.

We believe we can advance peace in the world by introducing world cultures to children and teaching them to appreciate others from a young age.

One Dear World, a London-based family startup is proud to announce the launch of its multicultural soft doll collection on the International Day of Elimination of Racial Discrimination. With a mission to promote diversity and inclusion to children, the company is set to raise £18,000 on crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to produce the first batch of their dolls and children e-book.

This initiative is the brainchild of a husband and wife team. Winnie Mak is from Hong Kong and Rafael Tselikas is half French half Greek, they felt the need to bridge the gap and reach out to every child through multicultural dolls irrespective of where they live or come from. Having grown up in different cultures gave them first hand experience in cross-cultural relationship. They believe that a lot of conflicts could be avoided if everyone has a better understanding of their differences and work together to find a common ground. The funds raised from this crowdfunding campaign will go towards completion of the project, demonstrating the power of diversity and oneness to the world. One Dear World’s Indiegogo campaign will run from 21st of March, until 22nd April, in congruence with International Mother Earth Day, a day which reminds us that the earth and its ecosystems are our home and that it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the Earth.

Meet the Dear Dolls
This unique set of multicultural soft dolls consists of 16 dolls from different cultural and ethnicity groups. In this crowdfunding campaign, 4 of them - Hope (African), Jun (Eastern Asian), Lea (European) and Parth (South Asian) are offered. Through this collection of dolls, One Dear World wants children to be able to appreciate themselves as they are, respect others regardless of the racial and cultural background they come from, and see themselves in a future where everyone is included.
