Polarn O. Pyret is partnering up with the World Childhood Foundation to bring children around the world, the support and guidance that they need. We are now selling our Classic Terry Hares on behalf of the good work Childhood does around the world. For every terry hare sold, we will donate 15% to Childhood to help them give children a secure and loving childhood. Letting children be children in other words. A cause that is very close to our heart. You can contribute as well. Buy a terry hare and give it to someone you care about.
THE WORLD CHILDHOOD FOUNDATION
All children have a right to a childhood, to safety, happiness, playfulness, and curiosity in life. All children have the right to grow up and develop socially and intellectually.
World Childhood Foundation works to prevent abuse and exploitation of children. They support over 100 projects around the world, assisting children who are at risk of or are victims of abuse, children who are in alternative care, street children, and families at risk. Childhood has offices in Brazil, Germany, Sweden and the United States, but does not employ any staff in the field. Instead, they support projects run by local organizations that know their communities, and have an understanding of how to best to help children in need according to local circumstances. Even small organizations are vital in changing children’s lives, but often have limited resources to make it happen. Here, Childhood’s support is crucial. At the moment, Childhood supports projects in Belarus, Brazil, Estonia, Cambodia, China, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Nepal, Poland, Russia, Sweden, South Africa, Thailand, Ukraine and USA.
Childhood’s work is based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), and is politically and religiously unaffiliated. The goal of Childhood is that no child should be exposed to a violent or damaging environment, but instead have the opportunity to grow up with memories of a safe and loving childhood.
