The generosity of the customers and team at The Kids Store in Mount Maunganui continues to blow us away 💚 They've given $3,320 worth of pay-it-forwards so far and that has contributed to 100 kids receiving seasonal clothing packs, filled with high quality clothes.
Their latest act of kindness was 19 clothing packs to sibling groups from families who are struggling financially. These clothing packs were filled with high quality items like jackets, tights and track pants that'll keep these kids warm this winter and for many winters to come 🥰. Not only are the kids warm but they're proud to wear what they are given, giving them a sense of dignity they don't always have.
We all know how cool you feel as a kid, rocking up to the playground in your new jacket, and it's heartwarming knowing that, by paying-it-forward at The Kids' Store, you're able to gift that feeling to a child who might have never been able to even afford new clothing.
Hannah, who goes out and personally gives the clothing packs to these families told us, "Giving something like that means more than we could ever know. They're able to take pride in something that's nice, and something that's new."
How awesome is that? Hannah also mentioned it was personally really nice for her to be able to show up to their houses with a little something extra because the kids would get really excited and the mums so appreciative.
