Every other month I try to look through L's clothes and toys to see if I can donate something to families in need, young pregnant mums-to-be. So when JoJo Maman Bebe have asked bloggers to spread the word about their campaign I didn't hesitate.
"The JoJo Maman Bébé, From a Mother to Another recycling/ charity initiative was launched in 2015 to make sense of clothing waste and as a responsible move to prolong the lifespan of worn baby and children’s clothes. Donated pieces were sorted into sex, size and season and beautifully wrapped as gift packs of co-ordinating outfits which have been distributed via Barnardo’s
all year. The initiative is now being extended to offer distribution via the Trussell Trust’s Foodbanks and to those displaced by the war in Syria.
From a Mother to Another, the initiative from JoJo Maman Bébé, starts collecting again on 2nd Feb 2016.
JoJo will be collecting good quality outgrown or unwanted baby and children’s clothes in, sizes 0-6 years, at their 72 stores across the UK and Ireland. Customers are requested to make up complete
outfits to give something worthwhile this mother’s day.
Laura Tenison, founder & CEO of JoJo, visited refugee camps in the Bekaa Valley on the Lebanese Syrian border late last year. As a result JoJo launched an urgent appeal to collect winter shoes and
boots for the children living in tents, now under snow. Customers reacted with empathy and the thousands collected are currently being distributed on the ground to refugees with so little".
Want to help here is how:
"It is crucial to spread the word, and together we can make a difference to disadvantaged children whilst working to reduce
landfill from clothing waste".
