Ufadili: Kind World Goods

What if the clothes you purchased for you and your children were more than just cute?

What if ... the clothes were super cute, taught you and your children how to say things in different languages, shared unique and interesting facts and then 30% of the profits from your purchase went to helping people, animals and the planet?

That is the essence of Ufadili.

Ufadili was founded on the philosophical cornerstone of conscious consumerism. I had an idea of a place where the simple decision of buying a shirt for my daughter or a onesie for my son could be a great connecting experience - an experience that connected us artistically, culturally, educationally and charitably to the rest of the world. In this spirit came the concept for Ufadili , a name inspired by the Swahili word " ufadhili " meaning "kindheartedness, goodwill".

Along with every Ufadili garment is a special "Giving Tag". The Learning side shares fascinating facts and several language translations of the designs (click Learning). The Charitable side indicates the organizations that will receive 30% of Ufadili's profits (click Giving).Ufadili ftp.ufadili.comgarments are made by a fair trade, sweatshop-free manufacturer. All print materials and packaging are made of 100% recycled or biodegradable products.

Everyday I am deeply grateful for my circumstances and feel a personal obligation to try and improve the lives of others. My ultimate hope is that through Ufadili we can help raise awareness and monies for organizations that work tirelessly to recognize, aid, and celebrate the extraordinary wonder of each life and our world.
