So excited to announce that Ellie Grace has been chosen as a Brand Rep for Olive & Annie!!
Olive & Annie provides handcrafted children’s apparel and accessories for mamas and babes. Their products are ethically produced with love in Kenya and are shipped around the world to wherever your home may be. Each purchase provides mentorship programs, sexual health education, support and healing, and empowerment programs to youth in urban settlements across East Africa in an effort to minimize sexual violence.
The foundations for Olive & Annie began with two beautiful little girls, Olive and Annie, who live at Zawadi la Tumaini Children’s Home in Nairobi, Kenya. The girls come from the Mathare slum in Nairobi, Kenya. Both come from single mother families. Unfortunately, both girl’s mothers became pregnant when they were very young which led to addiction and eventually a life living on the streets. With proper teaching of sexual education, mentorship, and empowerment perhaps these young women would have been led down different paths.
Ellie Grace loves fashion and girly things, so she was thrilled when Olive & Annie sent over a pair of their brand new PENDA BLUSH moccasins from the Winter Collection. The moccasins are high quality, sturdy, and of course absolutely adorable. Not only are they ethically produced, they are giving back to an important cause. Purchase for purpose. Your money is your vote. By purchasing from Olive & Annie you are not only receiving quality shoes, but you are helping provide education and support to urban youth & women in East Africa. SHOP HERE.
In the coming years Ellie & I will be further partnering with Olive & Annie to create a line of moccasins specifically for AFOs (ankle foot orthosis) so that your kiddo with special needs can be wearing the cutest & coolest moccasins around!
**In the photos below Ellie is wearing the 2-3 year sized moccasins with her AFOs. She normally wears a US sized 7 wide shoe. Although these moccasins are not made to fit AFOs, they may work with children who have smaller feet. If you are interested in exact dimensions of the shoe, please contact Olive & Annie through their website. **
