A swanky place for Dolls to gather and let their hair down behind luxurious closed doors, this year I created "Apartment D", as in a Doll. Now, I'm proud to roll out "Apartment B", as in the Bhuetiful doll hue and I will meet regularly to build dollhouses (huts) for the homeless!
In a newly formed partnership I've created with The Mad Housers (located in a garage apartment ("#B") behind a *house), The Black Dolls (Porcelain Pals and Brothas too) have yet another opportunity to change the way black girls are perceived and to change a life! Do not go to the house. The folks living there are not affiliated with the Housers, so let's keep them happy by not bothering them. Again, please do not go to the house.
I've always said to you all, that I'm going to meet you where you're at and attempt to elevate you from there. Well, this partnership with Mad Housers is in that same spirit! An Atlanta based 501c3 since the 1980s, Mad Housers has been meeting homeless people where they're at and lifting them up by going to their homeless location (under bridges, abandon buildings, in the bushes, etc) and building a hut around them. Um how cool is that? So cool!
This Christmas season, when we can all use some good cheer, I hope you'll join me to begin regularly participating in these dollhouse (hut) builds.
Love, Mama Doll
- Hashatag for this Affair #BDAhomefortheholidays
- What to wear: Be a Doll and wear you Black Doll T-shirt. Tennis shoes or work boots. Jeans and or other sturdy materials. Wear work gloves and ear muffs and jackets to keep warm.
- What to bring: Be a Doll, bring a toy black doll or we'll ask for a $10 Paper Doll donation. Also, to stay hydrated bring bottled water.
- No experience needed.
- About the huts we'll build: The huts are meant for 1 adult. The floor is 8 foot x 8 foot and 10 feet high. Inside there's a loft space with a ladder - people can sleep up there or use it for storage. It has a wood burning stove and each has a basic locking system so that people can lock themselves in or lock their huts when they leave.
- Builds are on the following days: Every 2nd Saturday of the Month. Every third Wednesday of the month and every 4th Sunday of the month. When our schedule allows, The Black Doll Affair will schedule group builds on the 2nd Saturday of every month. If you can't make our group build and find Wednesday or Sunday more accommodating to your schedule, please contact Ryan at: [masked]
- While Mad Housers welcome all volunteers, they;re especially [heart] volunteers with trucks.
- PLEASE be sure to wear sturdy shoes and long pants; leave those shorts and flip-flops at home.
- Sometimes Mad Housers has a client (homeless person) lined up for these fourth-Sunday events, sometimes not. If not, we'll engage in other productive activities like: summerization / winterization, client outreach, warehouse love, panel builds, panel fixes, etc. Ideally, there is a client identified and we'll transport tools, panels, and volunteers from the warehouse to the client site and use them to build a safe and secure living space for someone... who will be very appreciative of our "pretty...philanthropic" efforts.
*Mad Housers building is the garage apartment ("#B") behind a house. Please DO NOT go to the house. The folks living there are not affiliated with the Mad Housers. So let's keep them happy by not bothering them.
Time to make a difference in someone's life! Ready? Set. Go!
Please & thank hue.
Love, Mama Doll

Mama Doll is proud to present “Table for Two”, her idea for The Black Dolls to mentor young girls on the weekends! For this Pretty...philanthropic” concept coming out of The Black Affair, The Black Dolls will treat baby dolls, girls ages 7-12, to an empowering self-esteem tea. General Public RSVP: Does the tweenage girl in your life suffer from low-self esteem? Would she benefit from spending an hour lunch with someone on a master path to loving the Doll in the mirror? If you answered yes, and your child is age 7-17 years old, send a short text to the Doll Phone telling us her story. Example: “Hi, Mama Doll! My child has lost her way at this new school where she’s being teased daily. I’d like to make a reservation for a table for two.” Example: “Hello, BDA! My niece is going through puberty and acne has taken over her face. It has really taken a toll on her self-esteem! Help!” Example: “Hi, Dolls! My daughter’s boyfriend broke up with her for another girl. Since then, she puts herself down a lot. A reservation for 2, please and thank hue!” Make your reservations today. Text the Doll Phone (404)[masked]. Tell us your short story. Ask to make a reservation for two. If selected, we’ll reach out to you. ————————————— Black Doll RSVP: Dolls wanting to participate as mentors, should have a background check on file and be prepared to pay for lunch for two - yourself and the Baby Doll. Lunch is $40 for two- tax and tip included. ONLY 20 Doll spaces available for this Affair. Once you’re selected as a mentee, based on having a criminal background check on file in the Dollhouse and your Show/No-show historical record, Mama Doll will contact you to pay for lunch in advance. Once you’ve paid for lunch, we will pair you with a pretty...pint size baby doll to mentor over a one how power lunch. “A mentor empowers you to take a better path. A mentor cheers you towards that path. A mentor guides you once you’re on the path and smiles a grin of team success! The path is self-esteem” - Mama Doll Founder of The Black Doll Affair.
