Already involved in myriad causes, this time, the "Try Everything" singer has partnered with Juegaterapia Foundation (based in Spain) to design a bald doll called Baby Pelon.

With its unique design, the doll wears a cute bandana designed by Shakira and ios stamped with many pink kisses with which the singer sends all her love to children and their families. The doll’s aim, besides raising funds, is to allow children who have lost their hair during treatment to identify with the toy.

Other Spanish acts like Alejandro Sanz have also joined the cause.
