The dolls were on display at the Petit Palais from November 26th to December 1st, and will be auctioned off December 2nd at the Four Seasons Hotel Georges V. The reserve price for a doll is around 500 Euros and proceeds will help vaccinate children in the Darfur region of Sudan.

The Frimousses de Createurs initiative was started in 2003 and is held every year. The initiative benefits UNICEF’s vaccination campaigns.
