Good medicine

Today we at Dolls for a Cause salute our medical heroes: doctors, nurses AND patients!
How do you define a Hero? This is what we asked ourselves as we went to work on a collection to honor our veterans. In these auctions you will find an amazing assortment of superheroes and real heroes. These are our true super heroes! They are selflessly our protectors. I would like to thank all of our service men and women for your service to our country. You are my superhero. You are Batman without his cape.

These amazing collections will be sold as 100 percent donation to Fisher House Foundation. We did some research to find a veterans charity that spends the money wisely where we could feel confident that your donations will be put to very good use.

A Fisher House is “a home away from home” for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. The homes are normally located within walking distance of the treatment facility or have transportation available. There are 63 Fisher Houses located on 23 military installations and 24 VA medical centers. Many more houses are under construction or in design.

Since 1990

  • Families served: More than 180,000
  • Number of lodging days offered: Over 4.7 million
  • Saved families more than $200 million in lodging and transportation costs

What tribute to our veterans would be complete without including the people we entrust to take care of them?

We are very excited to present to you our Military Hospital Collection by Dolls for a Cause.
