About Kenzi’s Causes
Sometimes the most unfortunate circumstances can transform into unexpected beauty. Kenzi’s Causes is a testament to that. Kenzi’s Causes was founded by Jessica Bachus after her daughter, Kenzi was stillborn at 24 weeks. Overcome with grief, Jessica felt compelled to channel her emotions into something that would honor Kenzi’s memory. With this deep and noble calling, Kenzi’s Causes, formally known as Dolls for Daughters and Kenzi’s Kidz, was born. Jessica and her family began providing dolls to children during the holiday season who would otherwise go without. It was in her own grief that she stabilized the hearts of others. Over a decade later, Jessica’s heartbreak led to a breakthrough that would change the trajectory of struggling families in the Colorado area forever.
