During this painful and lonely time, she came up with an idea of creating "companion dolls" for other kids suffering from the same condition. And in late Jan 2018, she won an amount of USD 30,000 at "Imagine if, with JIF" contest. Chandler lives in Chandler, Arizona .

behind the news

Kids born with a cleft lip and palate is quite common. It is a condition when the lip or the palate or both have openings or splits in any one or both. It can happen by itself or due to a genetic disorder. Charlotte too was born with a similar condition. She underwent a surgery to fix it. It was during this surgery phase that she was inspired to create "companion dolls" for others suffering from a similar condition. She has already sold more than 150 dolls in almost every state of U.S.A., Mexico and Canada. She says that she feels happy to see a kid holding a doll made by her and wish to expand her "Stitches by Charlotte". The contest was organized by JIF Peanut butter in a move to find young entrepreneurs for a better future and human values.

beyond the news

An idea "Stitches by Charlotte" that got her USD 30,000 dollars to expand her business simply reflects that better future. It shows that a future with smiles on every lip can be assured by valuing and caring for others too. It seems that future businesses can be built by anybody and at any age as long as you 'care for others '.
