One of our favorite new brands is Aden & Anais. They have started The Swaddle of Love Foundation.
The foundation’s mission is to provide babies with the basic of human connections – touch. Orphaned babies become conditioned not to cry, even when left alone for 17 hours a day, simply because they know no one is coming.
Research shows touch deprivation in infants is attributed to many emotional and physical disorders, including brain defects, anxiety and depression to name a few.
Our goal is to eliminate touch deprivation in orphaned babies across the world.
Just $100 a month is enough to employ one local woman to help nurture these orphaned babies, so even the smallest amount matters.
