We are passionate about raising money and awareness for vulnerable children around the world and to that end we donate a percentage of our sales to the following listed charities. All do remarkable work around the world for the most vulnerable disadvantaged children.
Operation Smile is a US based international children’s medical charity that heals children’s smiles, forever changing their lives. As one of the most prominent charities for children in the world, they have a presence in over 60 countries, from the US, Canada, Russia, Egypt to Ghana, South Africa, Peru and beyond. They mobilize a force of medical professionals and caring hearts who provide safe, effective reconstructive surgery for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate.
Since 1982, the organisation through the help of dedicated medical volunteers has provided more than 2 million patient evaluations and 200,000 free surgeries. 1 in 10 children born with a cleft palate will die before their first birthday. Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft, often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places these children are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can’t afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a normal a life. Let’s do our bit to help these children grow up to live productive, happy and independent lives.
Family for Every Child are a global alliance of 33 organisations from 30 countries across the world united by a common vision of a world where every child can grow up in a permanent, safe and caring family. Millions of children across the world live without the protection of a caring family. This makes them vulnerable to exploitation, trafficking, child labour or early marriage, and other forms of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, often within their own home. These local issues form a global crisis. This organisation is pioneering a new approach to solve this crisis by bringing together practices and research from local and national contexts to their global alliance.
They have a unique understanding of the challenges of children and families in these communities and adapt and share ideas to create a range of solutions to the crisis of children living without families. They are thought leaders, innovative practitioners and social entrepreneurs leading organisations with a proven track record in child care and protection. A worthy cause we are proud to be a part of.
SOS Children’s Villages’ sole purpose for nearly 60 years, is to provide “a loving home for every child” through child sponsors. SOS Children’s Village provides a new family and home for more than 78,000 children in 518 unique Children’s Villages in 125 countries. Their approach is very simple; building a community for children who have lost their parents through war, famine, disease or poverty. They provide children with a home, a family and a new mother in a purpose-built local village, where they can stay until they are ready for independent life.
Education: The charity has built and run 415 nurseries and schools which provide 132,422 children with a quality education. They also run 103 SOS Vocational and Staff Training Centres which provide new skills and practical training to 26,254 young people and adults, giving them a route to long-term success. In areas where medical support is scarce or non-existent, they build SOS Medical Centres which provide communities with immediate medical treatment and preventative and palliative care. They currently run 72 SOS Medical Centres providing treatments and counselling to 455,607 patients. SOS offer so much more and we are proud to be part of this community.
