This week is the 75th Anniversary of The Wizard of Oz and while Warner Brothers celebrates they are also taking this momentous opportunity to give back. Several licensees are lending support to Habitat for Humanity, but none more than the Tonner Doll Company. Tonner has always been a big supporter of the Oz community and in September a one-of-a-kind doll auction will commence with proceeds supporting Habitat for Humanity. Please see the original press release here. The auction is also covered in the Autumn issue of Fashion Doll Quarterly. And if dolls aren't your thing you can always help by simply donating. There are Wizard of Oz gifts for every donation level. You can see them in this previous blog entry. Or check with your local chapter of Habitat for Humanity to volunteer.
The auction isn't until September 4, but today Tonner Doll Company treats us to a sneak peek of Glinda by Betsey Johnson and Dorothy by Chris Benz.
See Tonner Doll Company's official blog for more photos and details of these amazing dolls!
And remember............THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME!!!
