Cabbage Patch Dolls to Raise Money for Adoption Awareness?

I kid you not, a Steven Tyler Cabbage Patch doll:
Rocker Steven Tyler and actresses Katherine Heigl and Kristin Chenoweth have been immortalised as one-of-a-kind Cabbage Patch Kids dolls for a charity auction.

Former child star Raven-Symone has also been 'Patched' as part of a special celebrity range to raise funds for U.S. adoption organisation the Children's Action Network (Can).

The dolls are being sold via auction website and each one comes complete with its own autographed birth certificate.
Oh, and don't forget Al Roker. He's included, too.

So what do you think?  Are Cabbage Patch dolls good spokesmodels for adoption awareness? After all, they come from under a cabbage leaf, no pesky birth parents in sight, no prior history at all, just a birth certificate signed by the famous baby him/herself. . . .

Ironic, yet very fitting. My old rocker heart is breaking and is screaming, "Noooo, Steven, noooooo!" You know, because he is my boyfriend. ;)

The article is confusing. Is it for US foster kids or newborn/international adoption?

It's not a big surprise that they are being SOLD on Ebay.

Cabbage Patch Dolls are triggering for many adoptees. The fact that they are being used to fundraise for adoption makes it clear that it's all about the money and not about kids.

I'm sorry, but I just can't get past the image of the Steven Tyler doll to post an actual comment.

Mara, 100% of the proceeds of the auction are going to support children in foster one is making money off of this.

Personally, I think it is a cool way to raise awareness and funds for a great cause
