Shakira has teamed up with Spanish-based organization Juegoterapia and has designed an adorable doll for a good cause! Early this week, the Colombian songstress revealed the great news on Twitter, sharing a photo of the cute toy to her 38 million followers. "Shak designed this doll from Juegoterapia to help sick children," expressed her official Twitter account. The doll collection, which is called "Baby Pelones," is in support of children with cancer.  

The 39-year-old "Whenever, Wherever" singer posted the adorable picture, flaunting a small doll with large, dark eyes and freckles. According to the campaign's official website, the bandana on the doll, which is covered with smooches and says "besitos dulces" (sweet kisses), was design by Shak herself. 

Spanish crooner Alejandro Sanz also jumped on board with the awesome initiative and previously designed his doll. The bandana on the Sanz edition is blue with colorful crowns and says "guapo" (stud).

Until now, the "Baby Pelones" collection counts with 10 different dolls designed by other public figures, mainly from Spain. Shakira's and Alejandro's dolls will soon be available for purchase. The campaign, which launched over a year ago, was created to inspire children who have been diagnosed with cancer. Not only are these dolls 100 percent solidarity with young cancer patients, but they are also comfy and smell like vanilla. The toy has been an incredible success amongst children, who feel happy to have a doll they can identify with. 

Within the first four months since the campaign launched, the organization sold over 60,000 pelones. This adorable collection can be found in local stores in Spain, such as Juguettos, Mothercare and El Corte Inglés. The website also shows the dolls available at local Toy's R Us and Amazon. 

"Baby Pelones" launched in 2015 under the organization Juegoterapia, founded by Mónica Esteban. The organization is a firm believer in the benefits that fun and games have in hospitalized children during long stages.
