**GIVEAWAY CLOSED** The winner is Krystyn of Really, Are you Serious? Congrats!!
What if the clothes you purchased for you and your children were more than just cute?
What if the clothes were super cute, taught you and your children how to say things in different languages, shared unique and interesting facts and then 30% of the profits from your purchase went to helping people, animals and the planet?
That is the essence of Ufadili.
Ufadili was founded on the philosophical cornerstone of conscious consumerism. Founder Michele Mandeville had an idea of a place where the simple decision of buying a shirt for her daughter or a onesie for her son could be a great connecting experience – an experience that connected us artistically, culturally, educationally and charitably to the rest of the world. In this spirit came the concept for Ufadili , a name inspired by the Swahili word “ufadhili ” meaning “kindheartedness, goodwill.”
I have been very impressed with Ufadili’s business approach, and their line of clothing is simple and super cute. I always love hearing about women business owners’ success stories. Michele could not be any nicer, and has been a pleasure to correspond with. She sent Reese a pair of flip flops (that Reese was able to pick out)….and I don’t think she has gone a day without wearing them since they arrived. Reese’s flip flops are 100% rubber with 3 velcro, interchangeable, character buttons. She loves being able to chose which animal she’ll wear that day.
Each Ufadili garment comes with a special “Giving Tag.” The Learning side shares fascinating facts and several language translations of the designs. The Charitable side indicates the organizations that will receive 30% of Ufadili’s profits. Reese and I enjoyed learning how to say some animal names in different languages together.
And now for the best part: Ufadili has offered one of my readers any item from their store! That’s right–you get to pick. So browse their store and tell me in a comment what item you would chose if you won (this is required).
~Order anything from their store during the contest period for an extra 5 entries. AND, support a woman owned business at the same time!
~Anything else, like stumbling, blogging, faving on technorati, etc counts! Just let me know.
This giveaway will end on Friday, July 31 at 10:00 pm Eastern time. Good luck! I will email the winner and post their info at the top of this post. Good luck!
