Real Nappy Week is over for another year. It flew by in a whirlwind.
We hope you all had fun finding Billy and joining in with all the competitions that were everywhere you looked. More than that, we hope that there are many new cloth bums as a result. We met new babies galore at our nappy natters. Our ovaries were twitching far too much!
We have been completely overwhelmed by the support from our customers and followers for our #changingnappieschanginglives campaign. Our pledge to give 15% of our sales to Street Child was so well received and we were so pleased that you loved what we were doing.
You said some lovely things.
Some of you even wrote blogs about our campaign. This one from Ghostwritermummy encapsulated everything that Baba+Boo is about. Eve said she was full of tears reading it.
Today, after all the excitement is calming down, we have worked out that we - meaning us and to all our customers - have donated enough to do these things:
- Fund 3 teachers to work in a village school for a year, giving hundreds of children an education
- Give 10 families a business grant and training to pull them out of poverty for life
- Teach 10 illiterate teenage girls to read and write
Cannot tell you how thrilled we all are at Baba+Boo HQ.
We really did change nappies and change lives.
