This Christmas, French-inspired kidswear brand Wex Baby is collaborating with The Fostering Network, a UK charity dedicated to ensuring all fostered children and young people experience stable family life.
The Fostering Network is close to the hearts of Wex Baby’s co-founders, sisters Ettie and Sally Wexsteen, who were themselves raised in foster care from the ages of seven and nine.
To support the charity, Wex Baby is donating 20 per cent of profits from all items purchased from its Noel collection.
“Even though we lost the opportunity to grow-up with our biological parents, we have been able to live a very ‘normal’ life,” says Ettie.
“Unfortunately, other children who find themselves taken into the care system are not as lucky, with a huge shortage of foster carers resulting in kids being moved frequently and split up from their siblings.
“The Fostering Network’s amazing dedication ensures best practise and it constantly advocates the best for both children and foster carers.”
