One of my themes for gift giving this year is donation. I got three of these and will be back for more. People don't realize that the shore area is still suffering and in need of repair. Thx. (cute dolls!!)

About

The Tapina Company

One summer day in 2009, I just had to add yet another mission for myself- I was "assigned" to create an inexpensive, yet fun favor for my mother’s 60th birthday bash. I began sewing dolls, and the "I AM" doll was created! (The "I AM" doll has also become a copyrighted piece!)

As a mother to 3 of the greatest children, adding one more "thing" to my list of "things to do" was not something I was aching to accomplish. The same can be said of teaching kids and adults to donate time, money or even brain power. Donating is not always something that is easy to accomplish but, we do it because it needs to be taught and understood. Excitement about creating and raising money for charity arose in me and, the concept for "The Tapina Company" began...

The ultimate vision... “The Tapina Company” is going to create trendy pieces, and find cool ways to donate and spark excitement about using simple materials.

Recently, I was asked to create the dolls for a pilot program to inspire and empower children. I'm so proud to have branched into a space where the "I AM" dolls can become a teaching and healing tool. I AM, ready to inspire and be inspired!

    Owner, Maker

    Thank you for giving me some of your time and interest. My name is Vivian and my Nonno would call me “tapina” meaning “little devil” in Italian…it’s a very cherished nickname that my family now uses to refer to my daughter. I found that getting back to sewing only helped me remember family now so far away. Creating made me realize what I'd been missing in all of the out-of-house-work I'd been doing for years. And finally, donating IS one of the greatest feelings. I'm so proud and excited about this company. So many positive and empowering ideas have come from people who have casually purchased a piece and then contacted me with additional meanings and uses. Be sure to stay tuned... I hope you enjoy life and inspire your surroundings!

Additional policies and FAQs
FAQ’s –

*If there was the need for as many as 25 dolls (or scarves) in one order, could you produce that many within the time frame mentioned?
- YES! No number of dolls or scarves is too many (no donation amount too high!). I place my products within craft shows, fundraisers and in local shops, so I have about 100 pieces on hand at all times.

I'm also not shy when discussing wholesale opportunities!!

*If there is a charity alongside a piece but you have a preference for another charity mentioned, could you "switch" your purchase to the preferred charity?
- Without a doubt! My main goal is to influence donations. I am always willing to research a new or not yet investigated charity or fundraiser. Just email over your thoughts.

*I work at a shop that may be a good fit for the “I AM” dolls, what can I tell my employer?
-Please, please, please send them my email address so that I can discuss this all with them and thank you for your thoughts! So that you know (and so that you can spread the word), I don’t ask that any shop or cause buy these pieces first, I only ask for the space and will give a percentage of sales to the store owners, if necessary. P.S. if you are not within about 100 miles from the Lehigh Valley, PA area I will mail the dolls out monthly or bi-weekly to restore inventory- no shipping charges of course. Exposure, exposure, exposure is what we need!!

*Creative ideas for your purchases:
- Party favors
- Teacher, bus driver and tutor gifts
- Fundraiser or Raffle piece
- a unique "Feel better soon" gift
- a unique "baby on the way" gift
- a great way to teach children how to GIVE (and receive)
- Include the "I AM" dolls within any care packets you're sending off to soldiers overseas!
