A Worthwhile Cause

"In late 2009, the founders of Big Heart Baby started to discuss plans of starting a children’s clothing company. As part of our research, we took a trip to South East Asia in order to find garment manufacturers and designers.

It was during this trip that we repeatedly came into contact with underprivileged children, many suffering from lack of proper nutrition and proper healthcare. It was a heart wrenching experience and we quickly decided that our business model had to include an aspect of giving back to the less fortunate in the U.S. and all over the world.

It suddenly made perfect sense. If we are going to sell children’s clothing, why not give a portion of our proceeds back to children?

It became our mission: with every sale we make, we’ll donate to a cause helping kids.

Initially, we are offering 5 one of a kind baby onesies, with 50% of profits from the sale of each color being donated to one of 5 major children’s charities -

* Blue benefits the fight against Autism,
* Pink benefits the fight against Children’s Cancer,
* Orange benefits the fight against Child Hunger,
* White benefits the fight against Juvenile Diabetes,
* Red benefits the fight against Pediatric Aids.

With your support, we plan to expand to a full children’s clothing line, while adding more causes to our mission. There are plenty of companies selling similar products, but none have a heart as big as ours. So please make your baby a Big Heart Baby."

    This is all kinds of weird.

    - They want to run a business located entirely in Asia from the U.S. Bad enough that companies don't want to do any manufacturing in the U.S., but they don't even want U.S. talent to design the clothes.

    - They saw so much misery in Asia, but none of the charities they mentioned sound like they benefit Asian children. Sounds to me like helping Asian children obtain better healthcare and nutrition would be more helpful than something like giving money to a U.S. organization for juvenile diabetes, when U.S. kids already have great healthcare.

    Re: chlyn – Chlyn:

    We are not running our business in Asia. We just took a trip there in the early stages of planning the company. We are located in California and all of our design work is done here. We use both domestic and international suppliers. Our trip to Asia is what inspired us to incorporate giving back into our business model.

    Most of our donations to Juvenile Diabetes, Autism, and Children's Cancer help children in the US and other developed countries, but Pediatric AIDS and Child Hunger are both huge problems in Asia as well as many other parts of the world. Our goal is to help children's causes everywhere.
