Back in 2008 when I was pregnant with our twins doctors found several cysts on the brain of one of our twins, not exactly news any parent expects (or wants to hear) when going for a routine ultrasound! Immediately you start worrying about all the conditions, illnesses and disabilities that could possibly affect your baby’s life. Thankfully by the end of our pregnancy the cysts had disappeared, but there are plenty of families who are not so lucky.
Australian mother Jacqui received the same news when pregnant with her twins, and as a result her beautiful son Dominic was born with two conditions. Blessed with two caring, determined parents who fought for the very best early childhood support Dominic has blossomed and is now a happy and active 3-year old. Seeing first hand how important early intervention is for children dealing with disabilities Jacqui, together with her friend Ana, came up with a clever plan to raise money for organisations who support children with developmental delays: meet Jacana Kids.
Jacana Kids is a trendy children’s fashion label that combines style with social good, donating 50% of profits to a chosen organisation that helps children with disabilities get the best start in life. The Jacana Kids range caters for cool kids aged 2 to 9 years old and is inspired, and designed, by the amazing children the brand is supporting. So when you don a Jacana Kids outfit you are donating at the same time, what a fabulous concept!
This Summer Miss 6 is spreading the Jacana Kids love with the cute Heartie Tee (RRP $39.95) by Maya, while Master 8 is rocking black and white this summer with the Alphabetie Tee (RRP $39.95) designed by street smart Maddox. Can you believe both of these talented artists are only 5 years old? Their artwork has been lovingly handprinted in Melbourne so there may be slight variations per garment, making each tee a little different just like very child is unique and special.
