Mission Statement

The mission of the Shadow Buddies Foundation is to provide emotional support through education regarding illness, disability, or medical treatments. The foundation accomplishes this mainly through unique programs designed to enhance the lives of children and adults and increase 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 complimentary goals.


Shadow Buddies are condition specific dolls desgined to be a friend, "just like me" for seriously ill or medically challenged children. The Buddies not only provide comfort to the ill child, but also provide physicians a hands-on method of educating newly diagnosed children and their families about a particular disease or medical condition and its treament.

Shadow Buddies are also a unique form of play therapy. The Buddies remain with the child throughout their treatment, providing long-term psychological support. Each Buddy wears a smile on its face and has heart eyes for love. Our goal is to help these children view themselves in a positive manner.

Would you recommend Shadow Buddies Foundation?

by Kiran K. from lenexa, KS (January 30, 2014)
Yes, i would recommend. One of the best ways to learn is through experience.What better way to gain experience than to work at an organization hand-picked to fit your needs and interests Community involvement is one of the best ways to feel connected to your community. This post requires you to be with special children, you can make a difference where someone needs help. If people never help each other and only care about themselves, the world becomes cruller, sadder place. But when we volunteer our time or talent, we make our planet a better, happier home where people work together to make life easier for all. Therefore, i would definitely recommend any available volunteer work in our society, community and country. Thank You.
