American Girl thanks and honors the courageous and compassionate heroes who have risked their lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether you’re providing healthcare, keeping families stocked with food and supplies, or making sure cities keep running, we owe you a huge thanks.
Here are some ways you and your girl can join us in saying #ThankYouHeroes!
To honor frontline workers who have gone above and beyond, American Girl is asking families to nominate a hero who has made a difference in their lives. This person could be a nurse, doctor, grocery store worker, delivery driver, city employee, farm worker, or anyone else putting their health at risk to save lives and keep people safe.
To enter the contest, parents and their children select a local hero in their life by submitting a photo and answering how their nominee is supporting the community. American Girl will select five Grand Prize winners who will receive a one-of-a-kind, custom-made American Girl doll and outfit in the hero’s likeness to be gifted to the honoree, along with a $200 American Girl gift card for the nominator.10

Your girl’s doll can become a frontline hero with this limited-edition scrubs outfit. For every outfit sold, American Girl will donate a doll craft activity book to First Responders Children’s Foundation, totaling up to $135,000 USD in retail value. These books will benefit children of the first responders leading the fight against COVID-19 in the US.9
Outfits start shipping in August and are only available while supplies last.
As we all wear masks to keep each other safe, your girl can make sure her doll follows the rules, too. This no-sew doll mask craft is perfect for you and your girl to make together.
