From the very beginning we knew that Toddle should be good for your family’s skin and kind to the environment. We also wanted to do good in the world — so that every Toddle purchase would help make a real difference in children’s lives.
That’s why Toddle is proud to support a brilliant charity called Love The One.
Love The One operates in one of the poorest parts of India. Run by two inspiring doctors from the UK, Mary Cusack and Cat Morris, who met while studying tropical medicine in Liverpool. Both had a passion to use their medical skills to work with disadvantaged children in the developing world. They went on to specialist pediatric training in Nottingham, gaining membership of the Royal College of Paediatrics & Child Health.
Shocked by scenes of desperate poverty, lack of access to healthcare, and endemic violence against women and children, Cat and Mary settled in India, working with families in desperate situations, providing childcare, education and healthcare — literally saving lives every day.
Over 12 years, Love The One have worked tirelessly with communities, built care centres, and provided access to life-saving medication and treatment to children and families who would have had nowhere else to turn.
When Cat and Mary and their team first met baby Hashen he was six weeks old and severely malnourished. Hashen was born with both spina bifida and hydrocephalus. His parents couldn’t afford any healthcare for him, so he would simply have returned to his village to die.
Love The One was able to provide life-saving medical interventions, including surgery, which have helped Hashen to recover. They’ve educated his parents on how to care for his medical needs. For around £2,500, Love The One was able to save Hashen’s life — a sum of money his parents could never have dreamed of saving.
Look how cute and chubby he is now!
We’re proud that proceeds from the sale of every Toddle product helps to support the life-changing work of Love The One.
