Flying the Flag for Social Enterprise17 October 2012
Wow! We are delighted that From Babies with Love is an England finalist for Start Up of the Year at the Social Enterprise 2012 awards!
We are shortlisted amongst some great social enterprises, from an organization creating jobs for ex-offenders to one that works to widen access to top universities for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
So we’re feeling very honored!
From Babies with Love is a social enterprise because we sell baby clothes baby and donate 100% of our profits to fund the care of orphaned and abandoned babies.
We are accredited by the Social Enterprise Mark. This means that From Babies with Love has proved it is genuine against independently assessed criteria for social enterprise. The Mark provides assurance that our profits are used to improve the lives of orphaned and abandoned children, acting as a guarantee that From Babies with Love is trading for people and planet.
The social enterprise sector is growing and our bet is in time we’ll have many more options to buy products (that we would buy anyway) from social enterprises. A win-win-win situation:
- You enjoy your product,
- You get the added bonus of enjoying knowing the profit is helping society,
- Society is better off as a result of your purchase.
We hope all the amazing social enterprises, across all the award categories, will continue in their successes - so that in no time at all buying from social enterprises is just an everyday part of what we all do.
