Sweats for Charity
Monmum started as a blog when I was pregnant with our first gorgeous little monkey Lux. I wanted a to create an outlet for all things maternity and kids style after struggling to find maternity brands that still allowed me to be me and kids brands that encompassed my love of scandi and kiddie coolness.
Having a baby shouldn’t mean sacrificing your look, your personality or losing your confidence. Today pregnant women should be able to celebrate their style and feel sexy and empowered by their pregnancy journey. But more often than not, the changing body, raging hormones and weight gain are enough to make expectant mums retreat to comfortable clothes that hide everything away.
As the blog grew my life suddenly changed after being diagnose with breast cancer when Lux was just a few months old. The joy of maternity leave and my new angel became about chemo and support. So much happened during that time and it was so many of the little things that people did for me that helped me so much.
I wanted to somehow get that message out there but wasn't sure how.
I came up with a few different ideas but what stuck was that I wanted to keep it monmum, but give back for all the help that I received. More than that I wanted my experience to be an experience for others too and for them to benefit from the same type of support that helped get me through.
MONMUM SWEATS #getyourscandion was born and with each purchase you too can help many more. All profits, so 100% from the MOR Sweater go to cancer charities.
We are currently working with Breast Cancer Care and the Royal Marsden Hospital.
You will also receive an incentive card which we hope will help to inspire you to see how you personally can do more too and together we can make an awful story that little bit easier.
Each sweater will give to a different charity so while the monmum sweater collection grows be sure to pop back and find out who else we hope to give back to.
