As a mom in the first-world, it seems a little ridiculous that I've ever been worried about my children being "too thin."
Yes, when my first son was born, we had some feeding issues, and he looked like this for a couple of weeks:
Then I came across pictures like this:
My heart has been heavy for these children for a long while now, but I wasn't quite sure how best to help. I've donated to various charities when I've had some extra funds, but it just didn't feel like enough. Then one night when I couldn't sleep, I was struck by the idea of using my shops to help these babies. So I've created The Hunger Line - a new line of products in each of my shops dedicated to chipping away at the huge hunger epidemic.
100% of profits from all items in the Hunger Line will go toward charities (like Feed the Children, World Vision, Food for Africa or The Hunger Site) dedicated to feeding children around the world who are at risk of starvation.
So, what's in the lines? Here's what you can look for:
At my shop Mimi Baby Boutique, you'll find gorgeous glass bead bracelets emblazoned with the word "Hunger" on them. Right now I'm offering white lettering, but will be adding gold and silver letter beads soon.
At Big Red Kite I have a line of Hunger Bears. These soft plush bears use upcycled materials and come in three sizes - Bitty, Medium and Large. The medium and large bears are also embroidered with the slogan "Hunger."
Thanks you so much for helping me to take action on what's been weighing on my heart for so long. Appreciate you all!
