Each year, IKEA foundation holds their Soft Toys for Education campaign. Part of the campaign is a competition that puts children into the designer’s seat, asking them to draw their dream plush toy. The sale of the toys goes to support children living in poverty and to day, over €77 million has been raised, helping over 11 million children.

Check out the winning drawings and if you see one of these available in November or December, pick one up for that special child in your life and make an impact in another child’s life.
