True to their Australian heritage, Alimrose Designs was originally named Native Bush Babies, after two mothers were tired of not being able to access Australian designed dolls and products for their children. This was 30 years ago. Today, Alimrose Designs has grown into an internationally recognized brand and is one of Australia's most sought-after brand for children's products. Their products are highly popular with upscale families in Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong, and is just starting to make inroads in the United States.
Arden Anne is proud to be the exclusive retailer of Alimrose products in the United States, bringing a bit of the Australian Outback across the Pacific, but in a highly classy style.
Not only do Alimrose and Arden Anne align well in terms of the product design, style and quality that we cherish, but also when it comes to giving back and doing something. So while Arden Anne looks to improve child illiteracy here at home in the U.S., Alimrose is a big supporter of the following two charities in Australia:
Alimrose Designs lovingly supports Bear Cottage, New South Wales’ only children’s hospice. Bear Cottage is located on the grounds of St Patricks Estate, Manly in Sydney. They offer both respite and palliative care to children & young people with life limiting illnesses & their families. In plain words, children come here to die. It's unthinkable and unfair, but it's inevitable and, remarkably, Bear Cottage makes it OK.
The location of Bear Cottage at Manly ensures children & families can rest in quiet surroundings or enjoy the attractions and amenities of one of Sydney’s traditional beach holiday destinations.
Families do not pay to stay at Bear Cottage. Bear Cottage was established entirely by the community. Receiving no government funding, the uniquely compassionate services, facilities and atmosphere of Bear Cottage are a testament to the power of community. By dedicating their time, effort and financial assistance, volunteers and donors ensure that Bear Cottage is able to continue to give the very best in care and support to families in need.
For Bear Cottage to continue providing services for children and families it needs to raise over AUD$3.2 million per annum. If you would like to read more about Bear Cottage or make a donation please visit http://www.bearcottage.chw.edu.au/
Save the Children
From Alimrose Designs: We love what we do and get a lot of satisfaction out of designing gorgeous products & seeing them on babies and in homes everywhere. It is our pleasure to give a little bit back by proudly supporting many local charities including all of children’s hospitals in Sydney. In addition to this we also support the international Save the Children Fund, an incredibly important and worthwhile charity.
Save the Children is a charity that we feel passionately about. Save the Children Australia aims to ensure that all children, regardless of gender, race, country of origin or religious belief have the means for survival, receive protection and have access to nutrition, primary health care and basic education.
Save the Children fights for children's rights. They deliver immediate and lasting improvements to children's lives worldwide.
Save the Children fights on behalf of children, forcing their voices into the wider arena to make their needs heard and their rights recognised. They challenge abuse, misuse and ignorance. They fight not on a physical level, but an intellectual and emotional one.
