On January 1, American Girl introduced girls to its brand-new 2015 Girl of the Year, Grace Thomas. An avid baker with an entrepreneurial spirit, Grace shows girls today that following your dreams can lead to sweet rewards.
My girls are huge American Girl fans and get so excited to learn about who is going to be the Girl of the Year every year! All three of the girls were excited to meet Grace and Shelby claimed her as her own.
Available for only one year, Grace will launch with two books that tell her story, a beautiful 18-inch Grace doll, and an array of fun accessories.
To further Grace’s inspirational message for girls, American Girl has created For Goodness, Bake!–a year-long fund-raising initiative in support of No Kid Hungry, the campaign to end childhood hunger in America from Share Our Strength.
Other Grace-related activities for girls include the In the Mix with Grace online journal and year-long Grace-themed retail events. A full-length movie based on Grace’s stories will debut on DVD from Universal Studios Home Entertainment later in 2015.
