Our "Buddy Loves..." this week is all about our amazing brand From Babies with Love, whose beautiful baby wear has arrived on our rails today. From Babies with Love donates 100% of its profits to SOS Children's Villages and we're proud to support its work even further, by donating a further 10% of our proceeds from every From Babies with Love purchase.
We asked Cecilia Crossley, Founder of From Babies with Love, to tell us her personal story of why she set up the brand and to give us a glimpse into the work it does. Here's her story...
You know that feeling when a children’s charity advert comes on TV? How, since you became a parent, you feel deeply moved, in a way you never used to? That, whilst your own children are your priority, your concern for children everywhere has taken a new place in your heart and mind?
It’s exactly those feelings that prompted From Babies with Love to launch with one mission: it offers beautiful, organic baby products and sends 100% of its profits around the world to help orphaned and abandoned children.
For example, meeting Baby Monia, who was just a few months old when she joined her SOS family, in the SOS Children’s village in Gitega, central Burundi. There are 13 family homes in the village, where there is also a nursery, a primary school and a medical centre. The children go on to lead independent lives, breaking the cycle of poverty.
Thank goodness Monia is now safe and cared for. Her SOS Mother told us: "Monia is frequently the centre of attention, especially amongst the older children. This always puts a big smile on her face!"
With thanks to your purchases, and the incredible work of SOS Children, Monia and many children like her, are growing up in safe, loving families.
From Babies with Love’s contemporary, unisex designs are crafted using premium organic cotton and vintage postal materials collected from across the world, including stamps from the countries that the children they support live in. The collection of organic babygros, t-shirts and knot hats for 0-24 months, uses high quality screen-printing, applique and embroidery details which bring a premium finish.
From Babies with Love speaks to the powerful emotions parents feel for the welfare of children universally. It also appeals to style conscious parents who want beautiful clothes for their children. From Babies with Love offers both in a uniquely special way.
