5 Ways to Dress Your Kids with Meaning


I’m a kill two birds with one stone kinda gal. If I can shop for my kids (or for gifts) AND give a little bit of love to a worthy cause, I’m in! After searching through countless kid’s clothing companies (size 3 months to 12 years) that donate a percentage of proceeds to a charity, I narrowed down my favs so your kids can be stylish while stylishly giving back.

5. babyEggi
You won’t want to let-go of your eggo when she’s dressed in the adorable dress in the photo at the top ($48). Or add a little vroom in your dude’s zoom with this comfy Roadster Tee ($28)

What gives? Founded by two moms (who are also sisters), they donate 20% of proceeds to partnering children’s charities (thru March-International Medical Corp and Save the Children that are working to help the families of Haiti). The designs are done by legendary tattoo artist Mark Mahoney and they have quite the celebrity following (Angelina Jolie, Tori Spelling, Marcia Cross, Kim Raver, the list goes on!). Sizes 12 months to 8 years.

3. When I Grow Up
Oh, hello heart strings — you’ve been tugged. This line is so uber adorable with messages like, “I will eat my vegetables,” coupled with cute designs. ($15)

What gives? Their first line of value statement tees are manufactured in the US with vertified 100% organic cotton and printed locally with water-based inks. Each tee is originally designed with simple “I will…” statements that illustrate important life values. Inspired by Dr. Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture, When I Grow Up gives a portion of the proceeds from their charity tee to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Sizes 2T-8 years.

2. Retse Designs
Ready. Set-sy. Spell! Get dressed one letter at a time. Whether you choose M for Monkey or P for Pumpkin, your child’s tee will be spellbinding. ($17)

What gives: Retse donates $1 from every shirt sold to help fund art in public schools. “My 6-year-old daughter, Ellie, draws the designs,” the owner shared. “My 4-year-old son, Gray has recently become the colorer.

1. Farofa Nation
When it comes to capturing your heart, consider your kids armed and lovable. This line of tees most certainly was a shot to mine. In fact, my son insists on wearing his constantly and when it comes to picking my battles, he wins this round. ($24)

What gives: They have partnered up with TASK BRASIL in which they help “street” kids become citizens of the world by showing them self-reliance and responsibility. By giving them the opportunity to make something of themselves, they give them the chance to make something of their future — by giving them a fishing pole and not just a fish. Farofa Nation will donate 10% of each t-shirt sold to TASK BRASIL to help them continue their amazing work. Sizes 2T, 4T and 6 years.
