The fact is there aren't many choices for stylish, children's clothes that hold up well, look amazing and most importantly GIVE back to our global community, all at the same time.  aDARable is something truly original, unique and different.

Help us GIVE Hope, and Sustain Life.

We're on a mission: to empower women in countries in extreme need by creating job opportunities for women. Many women in the world are suffering.  They endure abuse, chronic disease, illiteracy, depression, and the list goes on.

This only drives us to create a solution to the problem. Research shows that the empowerment of women in extreme need enhances the wealth and wellbeing of nations.

  • Empowered women are more likely to reinvest profits back into human capital
  • When empowered women have economic power, they gain more equality and control over their lives, while contributing directly to their children's nutrition, health and education.
  • Empowered women gain confidence, positive self image, resilience, and leadership skills
  • Empowered women are also less likely to suffer from depression

This is all amazing, right? But, it gets better!  Empowering women in countries in extreme need has a strong ripple effect, impacting communities and, well, the world. When you contribute, not only do you get tons of love from us, you take a small step to catalyze change, and that my friends, is MASSIVE.

             What makes our children’s clothing line aDARable you may ask…

The students at O'More College of Design have researched the children's market, identified the trends, and using their skills and talents, translated them into stylish, fun, and functional clothing in top of the line fabrics.  Clothing that mothers and grandmothers want for their aDARable little girls.

How you can help us!

After going to Ti-bouk, Haiti, we have interviewed and accepted 10 women to join our team and produce aDARable, The Concrete Pioneer Collection, which the students of O’More have created. In as little as one month, these 10 women will be going through a 30 day intensive sewing class to make sure our product is of competing quality.

We all have full-time jobs. However, this is a project we all feel extremely passionate about, so 100% of all monies received go into empowering the women in Ti-bouk, Haiti.

Below is a breakdown of all items and costs needed to make this project successful.  Our goal is to sell 750 pieces for our Spring 2014 line.  We need to raise around $67,000!

It’s a tall task to make and start a “factory” in a third world country, inside a city with no electricity and no running water. But it’s because of people like you, that our dream is becoming a reality.

What happens when you purchase an aDARable outfit

Through sales, we fund our non-profit, DAR Project. That means that the purchase of aDARable clothing will do far more than just create jobs for these 10 women.  Our mission/vision is to create sustainable businesses for women globally, so that they are not dependent upon charity, but instead these women can become vital parts of their country's developing economies.  Below is a picture of our group in Costa Rica!
