    This British lady founded the organization Bright Ears UK. She herself works in a hospital every day and knows how important it is for children to be accepted by their own environment and to be able to find friends similar to them. With this in mind, Clare started a line of dolls that represented visual disability or as a result of hospitalised procedures such as feeding tubes and stoma bags.
