Our Story


After a year and a half of planning and research Little Givers was launched mid 2016.
My husband and I wanted to help clothe little ones living in difficult conditions and we are
delighted to have found a way.

The great thing is…YOU are a part of this as well!

For every outfit purchased, Little Givers donates one to a child in need in
Ecuador or New Zealand.

I grew up in Santo Domingo, Ecuador on the North West coast of South America…

When I was eight years old someone knocked on our door. It was three little children asking for clothing and food. I ran to the kitchen to get some rice and fruits and my mother asked me what I was doing. I told her I was helping three children to have something to eat. When I saw her smile I knew I was doing the right thing.

I knew that every Christmas children would come to our door. Over the year I would put clothes aside and my mum would make sure we had food to give to them. I felt really happy to be able to help.

In Ecuador there is a lot of poverty. There are children on the streets without clothing and without food to eat. It is really sad to see them living in these conditions.

I have always thought about how I can give more to families in need but I didn’t have the resources to do it…

Baby clothing New Zealand

 
In 2013 I moved to New Zealand to live with my husband Nick and his family…

Nick was reading a book called “Start Something That Matters” by Blake Mycoskie – the founder of Tom’s shoes. Tom’s pioneered the buy one, give one model where a pair of shoes were donated to a child in need for every pair they sold.

We had an “aha” moment. We realised we could create our own buy one, give one online store and make a difference one (little) person at a time!

Little Givers has humble beginnings providing a select range of high quality babywear products to New Zealanders. But, like all babies – we intend to grow!

As we grow we will create more designs and get your input along the way. Our main goal is to help more children in need around the world and eventually create jobs in the countries that we are helping so that we can make this a sustainable project.

By choosing Little Givers you’re part of the movement!

With Love,
