“A children’s company helping children….isn’t that just logical?” a little goes a long way!

A while back Tina Tuchinda replied to a question I posed about her company donating a proportion of all sales to support abused & neglected children. Tina’s answer , really struck a cord. … “A children’s company helping children….isn’t that just logical?”. Yes, it makes so much sense, and in fact there are many labels doing just that, forging their way with a social conscious, with either dedicated projects aimed at raising funds or donating a percentage of sales for children in need.

There are many reasons a consumer buys into a label, the design, the quality, a beautiful aestitic or the percieved lifestyle. The additional factor of a children’s fashion/design label “doing their bit” and actively pursuing a socially conscious objective is surely an additional reason to invest.

We take a look at some labels trying to make a diffence – a little bit can go a long way. Especially if we all do our bit!

 

Bobo Choses, Christmas jumper campaign

For Christmas 2017  Bobo designed a limited edition of four intarsia knitted jumpers for both kids and women. The jumpers were only available in the Bobo online store and a few selected stores around the world. For every jumper sold through their own online store they donated 2€ to Save the Children – Spain. Bobo Choses goal was to aid Save the Children – Spain in their colossal mission of caring for the most vulnerable children, so that they can achieve a brighter future. Bobo’s message ‘We strongly encourage you to do the same with your local Save the Children or other suitable NGO. Let’s have fun and make a change!’

 

Gorman x Save The Children, Kid’s spray jackets

Though not a children’s brand Australian favourite Gorman had the brilliant idea of producing a limited-edition release of kid’s spray jackets, available in the same much-loved prints as the adult range. The socially conscious label used four firm favourite prints from their adult range reducing them to a limited covetable mini range. With all proceeds from sales going to Save the Children. Gormans aim for the project is to reach its goal of raising $120,000 to support children in need. In fact if you look online they only have two of the four designs still available. Well done Gorman!
