Buying baby gifts or baby clothing for your own child is always a fun treat. But if you can help a good cause and other babies around the world at the same time, the purchase is even sweeter.
There are several companies who make it their mission to help others in need through the adorable baby items they sell. So whether you’re shopping for a baby shower, birthday or your own little one, check out this list of baby clothing gifts that give back.
First on the list is Baby Teresa, named for Mother Teresa and whose tagline is “buy once, give twice.” For every romper that is purchased, Baby Teresa donates another one to a baby in need somewhere around the world. For their other baby items, like bibs, hats and blankets, Baby Teresa donates 25 percent of profits to “charities that empower women during pregnancy, birth and parenthood” around the world. The company was founded by two moms in Australia in 2009; and since then they’ve donated baby items and money to more than 20 countries.
All of Baby Teresa’s baby wear is made of 100 percent fair trade organic cotton, which is super soft and cuddly. The three romper designs available (in both bodysuit and sleeper styles) are named after children that the company has met throughout the world: pink polka dots is named for Ruby in Uganda (romper seen here), beige stripes is named for Jimmy in Indonesia (romper seen here) and blue polka dots is named for Son in Vietnam.
