Fodada – Clothing with a Cause: A Giveaway!

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.

To enter to win, answer the following questions in the comments on this post: What do you do to keep your heart healthy? Comments for this giveaway will close on Wednesday, February 13 at 11pm EST. The winner will be announced here on Valentine’s Day, February 14. Good luck!

    I try to eat more fruits and veggies than I used to. I am not a big fan but I know it is important!

  2. domestic diva says:

    I eat healthy food, and try to move every day.

  3. Jordyn Zimmerman says:

    Eat greens, take walks, laugh, cuddle with my daughter, and remember to just BREATHE. Wonderful work Fodada, thanks for all you do!

  4. MaryBeth Rowe says:

    To make sure my heart is healthy I do my very best to drink a glass of red wine every day. Sometimes at the end of a long day of motherhood I feel compelled to drink 2 glasses of red wine.

  5. Karin vdH says:

    Eating an array of rainbow colored veggies and fruit always does the body good. Plus, a small glass of red wine is a great way to wash it down at the end of the day.

  6. Melissa Summers says:

    I try to fit small workouts in when I can each day such as taking the stairs instead of elevator, parking the farthest parking space away, and generally just walking anywhere I can. I also try to not skip meals and thus be in jeopardy of overeating the one big meal I do get to have, which is tough when you’re a mom of little ones!

  7. Christine Krauth says:

    I try to keep my heart healthy by eating foods without Trans fat and hydrogenized oil, eating the good fats like omega 3′s, getting daily exercise and plenty of sleep!

  8. Rebecca Egsieker says:

    I exercise daily, drink plenty of water, eat lots of leafy greens, fresh fruits and lean proteins. Plus, a good dose of laughter always helps lower my stress level keeping my heart strong!

  9. R. K. Strader says:

    I love to jog! It feels good, de-stresses me, and is good for my body as well as my mind. I also try to get plenty of sleep, which is challenging for a busy mom. And most importantly, I try to do what I love and love what I do! Physical health is affected by our mental and emotional health, and so I do my heart the biggest favor by making sure that I’m productively following my passions!

  10. I play Roller Derby. It’s good for my heart athletically; it’s the toughest sport I’ve ever participated in! It is also good for my heart in a more soulful way, because it builds my confidence, provides lifelong friendships, and gives me a great way to be a positive, strong roll model for my daughter.

  11. Sherean says:

    Lots of hugs from my little guy keep my heart healthy! That and I’ve started limiting my carbs and have decreased the meat in my diet. Am moving slowly towards a vegetarian diet. I need to exercise more and will do that!

  12. jennifer says:

    I eat healthy daily, drink a lot of water, and exercise.

  13. christine marie says:

    i try to exercise at the gym 4 times a week and I hope to include more veggies and less sweets as i go!

  14. Livivua Chandler says:

    i love taking a stroll, choosing vegetables over other foods, or just cutting my portion sizes when eating, and taking a daily vitamin

  15. Dominique says:

    I do my best to eat healthy and walk! thanks!
