Donate a Doll Appeal FAQs

Thank you for supporting our Donate a Doll Appeal. If you have any questions about the appeal, which are not covered below, please email our team at

Donate a Doll1. How much does a doll cost?

It costs just £10 for us to purchase a doll, give it a heart t-shirt and send it to a UK hospital.

2. How can I donate?

You can donate via our website here or by texting DOLL to 70085. This will cost £10 plus a standard rate text message.

3. How do I name my doll?

Once you have donated, please email and tell us your name, mobile phone number (if you donated by text), your doll’s name and a few lines about why you have chosen the name (optional). We will then add your doll’s name to a wristband and place it on the doll. We will email you a photograph of your doll and a birth certificate.

*Please note that we will send your doll’s photograph and birth certificate on or after the 3rd December 2019. If you donate before this date, we will keep you updated as to when we have fulfilled your order*

Donate a Doll4. Can I name more than one doll?

Of course! Each doll costs £10, feel free to name as many as you like!

5. Can I choose which hospital my doll is sent to?

Unfortunately, we are unable to send specific dolls to specific hospitals. But we guarantee your doll will be sent to a sonography team at a UK hospital and will help sonographers when scanning tiny hearts.

6. My child would love one of the dolls? Can I buy one?

Sorry, but the dolls are not for sale. They have very important work to do!
