Once in a while, I get to do the awesomest of things on the blog.
Yesterday, JoJo Maman Bebe approached me and asked me if I would be interested in becoming a blogger ambassador for their amazing campaign, From A Mother To Another and help spread the word about helping children in need.
I nearly wept at the privilege of being able to lend my blogging voice and raise awareness of two worthwhile causes. Syrian children, for whom the campaign is trying to raise clothing, have been weighing on my heart heavily for the past year. Emma and I spread the word about #ShareTheMeal app at Christmas and shared our pennies in December with Syrian refugee children. Local children who live in poverty are also a genuine cause of concern for me and we always donate Emma’s small clothing to local charities who try to make their lives a bit better.
JoJo Maman Bebe are currently encouraging mums out there to spare a thought and an outgrown outfit and spread some love to other mothers whose children are in desperate need of warm, decent clothing. They are also extremely generous and will reward every mother who participates in the campaign with a £5 gift voucher to be spend in store on any £35 or over purchase.
In Northern Ireland, JoJo Maman Bebe is located on 629 Lisburn Road so a weekend trip into Belfast can become an opportunity to bless a fellow mother and her precious child in need.
We regularly donate Emma’s clothing when she outgrows it but I am sure we will be able to put together two outfits for a couple of special little girls somewhere in the UK or on the Syrian border. Emma will help me prepare the outfits as I want her to know from now that the life she lives is a privilege not many little girls can enjoy these days.
Will you help too?
It’s a brilliant initiative. Well done to JoJo Maman Bebe for coming up with the campaign and thanks to you for raising awareness x
This is such a good idea! I’m definitely going to put something together. I feel like Lily would want me to ^_^
What a fab idea – so good to be able to do something to help isnt it – even if it never quite feels enough xx
Such a brilliant campaign and so great you get to help spread the news! I’m all up for supporting these women through awful times x
That looks like a brilliant initiative. All of my children’s baby clothes got passed on to family as to be honest many of them were like new! Great awareness post xx
We also donate our clothes (there’s 4 fast growing children in this house so we often have bags and bags) to a local charity close to us. I wasn’t sure how needed our children’s things were for in this situation. The Syrian refugee crisis is HUGELY close to my heart and I would love to donate if they still want little people’s things, I don’t need the voucher xxx
What a lovely idea. I’ll have to see where the newest JoJo Maman Bebe is to us.
This is such a lovely idea, we have a local one so I will certainly join in
Amazing campaign and getting more people
Involved will do so much good. I’m definitely getting involved.
That is a fab campaign by JoJo Maman Bebe and the more I hear of this company the more I like them!
I love this campaign so awesome!I am in the process of bagging some outfits up myself
I love this campaign, it’s such a great idea. I kind of wish they’d done it years ago as we’ve had so much stuff we could have given them. Brilliant though, will make such a difference I’m sure 🙂
What a lovely idea for a campaign!
