We pick stuff that makes a difference to your lives. Whether it's solving a common parenting problem, something that looks cool in your home or great kit for babe to get stuck into - we've got it. So when our things make a difference in a wider way, you can imagine how 😍 we go.
We have some awesome brands that, like us, give back in lots of different ways. Here's just a few of our fave pieces from them. Perfect for a gift, or just to buy and keep. And the icing on the cake? You'll feel good, and do good when you buy them too.
Cute, cuddly and charitable, this Crochet Rattle has it all going on. Made by Pebble, a company that strives to help women in India have a better life, by offering them fairly paid, good quality & flexible employment, it's also handmade (like all of Pebble's stuff). You know that when you buy from this company, another family is benefitting. And that's more than enough to make us smile - we'll leave it to this adorbs bunny to get your little one grinning. Because it will...
We love these TOMS Classic Canvas Plimsolls, which come in a range of colours. Simple, sturdy, they are perfect for a present. And when you buy them, you'll be stepping into charitable giving too. This cool brand's ethos is 'one for one', so for every pair of shoes or slippers you buy, they give back and help kids around the world achieve a better standard of living. It's a pairing made in shoe heaven.
Give them their first BFF with this awesome Glow ZZZs Whale by B.Toys. This cuddly, soft toy glows and plays music to help comfort and soothe sleepyheads into the land of nod. And you'll sleep well too knowing that by buying this awesome toy you're helping kids all around the world. That's because B.Toys donates a proportion of sales to Free The Children, a charity that aims to get disadvantaged kids into education. Oh, and as a bonus, it also protects the environment by using as little packaging as possible.
What's better than a pair of winter pyjamas? Ones that make a difference to disadvantaged lives of course. Created by a super cool brand that's just landed here at KIDLY, these Noodoll PJs are perfect for Christmas and have been designed in collab with Tootsa - a cool kids' brand. And a percentage of the proceeds from each pair goes to 'Gingerbread' - the leading UK charity working with single parent families.
We're suckers for environmentally friendly kit, so a brand that does this, while partnering with a range of charities really ticks our boxes. Green Toys make all their stuff from recycled plastic - mainly milk cartons. To date, they've used 24,000,000 cartons to make their toys. And they work with some great charities to really make a difference to young lives and the environment. So when you buy this Green Toys Submarine, or any Green Toys products, you're helping the environment and helping others less fortunate too. Awesome.
And let's not forget... us!
We couldn't write a giving back piece without having a little mention about what we do for charity. It's a big deal for us and we love giving back. We currently give 1% of our revenue or 10% of profit (whichever is greater) to charities that help vulnerable children around the globe. Forever. So when you buy anything from us, you know you're doing good too. Check out our giving back page, for more info.
So there it is, a list of just a few of the brands that give back. Get going guys - it's all for a great cause...
