We had the lucky chance to collaborate with Goodwill, a well-known NPO that has been working for and with disabled individuals for over 100 years.
We decided to donate 160 Amigurumi dolls created by artists from all over the world to the kids of PS 149 in Jackson Heights, Queens.
These Amigurumi was donated by participated artists from the World Amigurumi Exhibition vo;.2 in 2015.

Takashi Ikezawa, owner of RESOBOX provided a short lecture while Japanese magician Sho Kitta performed a magic show for them.
We would like to give a huge thanks to Christopher Lindor, Jose M. Medellin, Jose Mateo, Karen Means, and Nicole Dinolfo of Goodwill NY.
We would also like to give a warm thanks to the school staff at PS 149 and the talented artists who donated their amigurumi pieces.
