We believe that in the 21st century all responsible businesses should be looking to contribute positively to the world – chasing profits isn’t enough. As explained in our story page, we passionately want to be part of making a difference which is why one purchase of a Playmat or Quilt made on this site will directly result in a child being fed for a week through the World Food Program’s amazing Share The Meal initiative.
We want our children to grow up understanding the importance of humans looking out for each other, no matter what background we come from. We want to show them it is possible to make change happen in the world, step by step.
There are 815 million undernourished people in this world today. That means one in nine people do not get enough food to lead an active and healthy life. In fact, hunger and malnutrition are the number one risk to health worldwide – greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
We can’t solve this hunger issue on our own but together it is possible to create real change and - as Mother Teresa said - “If you can’t feed 100 people, then just feed one”.
If you buy a Playmat or Quilt from Petite + Co, then we promise to feed a malnourished child for a week through the World Food Programme. That’s one week where they will not go to sleep hungry, and their body and brain will have the nutrition they need to grow. It’s what all babies and children deserve.
You can download the ‘ShareTheMeal’ App and find our team #PetiteCo. You can follow our progress on how many meals we have donated to date.
Please know by making a purchase, you have made a world of difference.
