Kauzbots are stuffed robot dolls that benefit various "Kauzes" from their sale. Although they are from new materials, 10% of the retail value goes to positive programs that directly benefit our planet. Karrisa, Kalvin, Kale, and Kruz are just a few of the cute front men/dolls for organizations like The Arbor Day Foundation, LifeWater International, and world hunger.
Kauzbots are a great gift idea that not only puts money towards various environmental, medical, and social issues, but also is a tangible object to hand to your friend or loved one. On a practical note however the 25$ doll (meaning 2.50$ of which goes to the "kause") you might do more good bypassing the Kauzebot and sending your money straight to Lifewater, Arbor Day, or a charity of your choice...but where's the fun in that!
At any rate, their intentions are good. If a stuffed doll is what your kid wants then perhaps these little Robots with hearts are just the ticket. Also a nice way to introduce your children to the needs of others. Check out Kauzbots.
