I recently discovered the online clothing retailer, “Fodada,” who offers a hip yet simple clothing line “for the best dada in the world.” And here’s the catch, Fodada not only sells cool, comfy clothing, but their main mission is to partner with organizations and causes that dads (and families) would be interested in supporting. As founder Bobby Barzi put it:
The amazing responsibility of becoming a father and raising my sons has become the most overwhelming and demanding yet rewarding experience of my life. Last year I realized that I needed to celebrate this experience and so I created fodada. I wanted to create a company that could provide a tangible product that could then be leverage to funnel exposure, support and funding for programming that is relevant and dedicated to fatherhood and families.
To date, Fodada has partnered with Autism Speaks, Giving Children Hope, Working Wardrobes, and the American Heart Association, and has helped inspire campaigns such as Color for Cause and Adopt a Dad, and programming initiatives from International Women’s Self Defense Day.
To recognize February’s American Heart Month and raise awareness for heart health in conjunction with the American Heart Association, Fodada has created a special line of red clothing available February 1 – March 22. Every purchase made from the red line during this time will result in a 100% donation of net proceeds to the American Heart Association. Fodada will also be donating 2500 little red newborn beanies to American Heart Association Hospitals to be put on babies delivered in the month of February. Each beanie will come with a note reminding and encouraging the parents about heart health and what it can mean to their family.
And here’s the cool part… Fodada is giving away two of their red line items to one lucky Giving Birth with Confidence reader! Comment on this post for your chance to win a red newborn beanie and your choice of a Mama or Dada Hoodie in red.
