The African proverb, “it takes a village to raise a child,” could not hold more true for us at The Giggle Guide™. As a comprehensive online destination for information related to the children’s marketplace, we are committed to the industry we represent: children. Like everyone in the children’s business, we are fortunate to be a part of the “business of youth,” and want to give back and make a difference in the lives of children who are innocent victims of their environment.
While it’s vital to take care of your own backyard, it’s also important to remember your backyard connects with the rest of the world. At The Giggle Guide™, we applaud organizations who make it their business to reach out to those in need. K.I.D.S., Soles4Souls, First Candle and Dignity U Wear take the adage, “love thy neighbor,” seriously. Together with many volunteers and donating companies, these organizations work hard to make the world a better place, and provide wonderful opportunities for the children’s industry to lend a helping hand.
All over the globe, there is the undeniable presence of poverty and loss. Basic human rights are often violated, parents struggle to feed their families, and animals cope with reduced habitat. With so many hands outstretched in need, it’s easy to turn the other way, not seeing how to make a difference individually. However… together we really can make a difference. MayaWorks, Oomfy Corp and Bébé Ravi Collection are three of many outstanding organizations that make it their daily mission to provide answers that are sustainable, ethical, and empowering!

January 25 2010 – Vacaville, CA: Hair Clips for Haiti has been created to help raise funds for the Haitian relief effort by No Slippy Hair Clippy®, a premier children’s hair accessory company.

The devastation in Haiti reminds us of human frailty. But more importantly, how this frailty turns to great strength when we extend a helping hand and lift each other up.
In the hope of somehow reaching out to the victims of the earthquake, we invite you to join us as we do our share in aiding our brothers and sisters in Haiti. We will be donating a portion of our sales to UNICEF to help in Haiti relief efforts. If you’d like to take part, please visit our website.
