Doesn’t it seem like you’re always buying clothes for your kids? Before every new season and after every growth spurt, you think, “Here we go again.” But what if you could shop from home and help those in need at the same time? Here are six kids clothing websites that let you do just that—it’s an amazing way to teach your little ones about the importance of giving back. For every item you buy, the company will donate to charity or give the same item you buy to a child in need. Spending money has never felt so good.


What They Do
To call VeryMeri simply a T-shirt company is an extreme understatement. VeryMeri is a full-service creative platform for children all over world. Its message to kids is simple and empowering: you can create change.

VeryMeri’s mission is to inspire children to create their own art and transform it into functional products—and to give back. Here’s how it works: let your child choose one of the site’s design challenges, such as to create the “T of Your Dreams,” download a template from the site, and let your kid’s imagination go wild. Then upload the design to the site. Children from all over the world will then vote for their favorite artwork. The winner’s design is transformed into a real T-shirt, hoodie, or dress.

How They Give Back
Challenge winners will have their products sold online and a portion of the sales go to any charity the child chooses. If your son or daughter isn’t sure where to donate, VeryMeri recommends The Art of Elysium, which encourages working actors, artists and musicians to dedicate their time to children who are battling serious medical conditions.

What’s your experience with online clothing sites that give back?
