Please join us in welcoming this lovable new member to DECSA!
But first, let’s share the story of how our newest member came to be here at DECSA…
The doll was donated by Ventures client James B, who began crafting the dolls while incarcerated. Many years ago, the first prototype was a life-size replica of Mr. B himself to fill his prison bed, which enabled a crafty escape.
Since that time, many smaller versions of the doll – a combination of recycled materials, handmade garments and baby clothing – have become a symbol of Mr. B’s creativity and industriousness. He now sells the dolls alongside original poetry he composed while in prison.
In the Ventures Entrepreneurs with Disabilities program, Mr. B is free to make his business bigger and more productive through smart business planning.
This doll still needs a name, so if you have an idea, please drop by our Community Hub and add it to the list, or email your idea to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our BIG THANKS to James B for the wonderful gift and to all friends of DECSA for contributing name ideas!
