Hey, I have a really neat company to share with you today. The Giving Goose is the dream business of 5 year old Bethany Sawyer. Here's the story behind this great company:
"Bethany Sawyer is a typical five year old who goes to kindergarten, plays dress up and loves to draw. But she has something else too, a desire to help make the world a better place. With the assistance of her parents and their family business, Image76, she has created The Giving Goose™, a line of clothing and gifts which feature the drawings of children. 10% of the proceeds from the line are donated to our benefiting charities. By donating a portion of the proceeds, Bethany wants to achieve her goal of sharing kids’ artwork with the world while also helping others.
The first run, introduced in Spring 2011, features six designs. Four of them were drawn by Bethany herself and two were drawn by her friend Benjamin. Our clothing line features designs that have been scanned, digitally colorized and screen printed onto brightly colored t-shirts and sweatshirts.Young artists from all over the country are invited to submit their artwork for consideration in being chosen as one of The Giving Goose™ designs. The artists that are chosen will select their charity of choice to join our group of benefiting non-profits."Wow! What a wonderful young lady!
I received a crew-neck sweatshirt in the Duck design for review. This is a bright orange sweatshirt, with the cutest little duck on the front. Any kid would love this! And it makes sense too; designed by a child, and who would know better what kids love? The sweatshirt is very soft and comfy; perfect for layering under jackets for the cold weather. Or, if you're fortunate enough to still have just sweater-weather, this would be perfect for your child! M will be getting this as a gift, and I can't wait to see her face when she opens the present! She is always wearing sweaters and sweatshirts; this is sure to be a new favorite!
Check out the other great designs on The Giving Goose. Any child would love one of these adorable shirts, sweatshirts or onesies for the holidays!
