An unusual group of women, trying to break down stereotypes, is lending a hand to help sick children.
The West Virginia chapter of Modified Dolls is a group of women with piercings and tattoos.
Each month, the Dolls organize a charity benefit.
They held a bake sale fundraiser in Charleston Sunday, with proceeds going to the Child's Play organization.
Child's Play purchases movies, video games, toys, and books for sick children in the hospital.
“It gives them something to focus on, be normal, and it raises their morale,” Sheila Kerr, of Modified Dolls, said.
Those who couldn't make it out to the bake sale Sunday can learn more about Modified Dolls and the charities they support on the group’s Facebook page.
