We look back fondly on our childhoods, mostly because of those super-adorable Cabbage Patch Dolls we "adopted" each Christmas and birthday. Sadly, the popularity of those loveable little dolls has waned over the years, but a new project -- launched in honor of National Adoption Month -- seeks to change that.
Starting today, people can bid on one-of-a-kind Cabbage Patch Dolls designed to resemble celebrities like Al Roker, American Idol judge Steven Tyler, Katherine Heigl, Raven-Symone and Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth. The eBay auctions will benefit the Children's Action Network (CAN), a national adoption awareness organization with a mission to place children in foster care.
"As a father, there is no difference between a biological child and an adopted one," said weatherman Roker. "Being a part of this auction is very meaningful to me as I have an adopted daughter and grew up with adopted siblings. This auction is significant in bringing more awareness to children's issues and hopefully will result in better outcomes for the many kids in the foster care system."
Heigl -- also an adoptive mother -- joined because it's a cause near and dear to her heart.
"I'm excited to be part of this auction to raise money and awareness for foster children," said Heigl. "Adoption is a cause very close to my heart as I have an adopted older sister and an adopted daughter. This auction is important to show the world how many adoptable kids are in great need of stable and loving homes."
