Tremendous Results - donating warmth fun and happiness
How’s your week going?
Something that’s very close to my heart is developing at a fast pace and I thought I’d let you know what we are doing as I think you’ll feel as strongly as I do.
At the beginning of the year I watched Dispatches- Born on the Breadline on Channel 4 and was really taken aback by the amount of Baby Banks that are needed throughout the country, to help support families who are on low incomes to help provide them with equipment, toys and clothing for their children.
On doing some further research we found that these Baby Banks link with Women’s refuge centres and supply women who are in desperate need, when they arrive, for clothing for their children and themselves, put simply they arrive with nothing but the clothes that they are wearing.
The All-in-One Company was started because I needed to keep my daughter, Lilly, warm at night as she was a little fidget and would repeatedly kick off her covers and wake feeling cold. I needed a warm sleepsuit to keep her cosy all night, and there wasn’t such a thing on the market for children aged over 18 months.
Now, 10 years on, we are able to donate onesies for children and families throughout the country, through Baby Banks and Women’s Refuge Centres. We have been doing this using the onesies that have been used for marketing purposes and we are now making baby onesies using the offcuts from your orders. So every piece of fabric is used to create something very special.
Each week a box of onesies is sent to a Baby Bank and each week we are helping to keep more and more children warm at night.
