Over the last two months, Tracy Vu of CroChic Shop Canada along with the help of two friends, has mailed more than 60 handmade dolls to children of health care workers across the country. She vows to fulfill any requests until the pandemic is over, and if a photo is included with the ask, she’ll make the doll look as lifelike as possible.

In addition to the doll, each package contains a thank you note and a tiny crochet virus, meant to help children cope with their COVID-19 fears.

To help keep the dolls free, Vu has started collecting donations through her Facebook page.
