From Babies With Love
1327. Cecilia Crossley
Cecilia Crossley, from London, founded ‘From Babies with Love’, a social enterprise that sells organic baby clothing and gifts, donating 100% of its profits to partner charities that work to support orphaned and abandoned children around the world.
Cecilia developed the idea for the social enterprise whilst on maternity leave and wondering how the sale of gifts for babies could, in turn, provide a wider gift of support to vulnerable children. So far, Cecilia and her team have donated over £100,000 to support over 7,000 children globally.
In a personal letter to Cecilia, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
“I know you do this with no thought of praise or reward, but allow me to offer my own recognition of how you have created ‘From Babies with Love’ which allows people to buy beautiful baby gifts while giving generously to orphaned children around the world.”
“This award is an incredible surprise! It means a great deal to me, and all of us at ‘From Babies with Love’. All our Non-Exec Directors are volunteers, and have been on our Board from the very beginning; this celebration of ‘From Babies with Love”s achievements is very much shared with them too.”
