Barbie debuted in 1959 and has since incorporated a wide range of diverse dolls of all colors, sizes, highlighting a variety of profession personalities such as doctors, lawyers, veterinarians, astronauts, pilots, coders, and other careers that may reflect less female dominance.
A percentage of the Airbnb funds will go to the Barbie Dream House Project which helps young girls follow their dreams. The project has raised $260,830 with a goal of $350,000. If interested in contributing visit the BDHP GoFundMe page.
