We love companies that give back, and one of our favorites is Lozz Dozz, a company that donates a portion of their proceeds to the orphaned children in Zambia and Zimbabwe. This helps to provide them with clothing and shelter.
It all started when founder Raquel Alonso had a recurring dream about a children's clothing line that was not only fun but helped orphans around the world. After ten nights of this recurring dream she decided it was a sign to stretch her entrepreneurial wings and make a difference. Since the age of 18 Alonso has spent time traveling to thirteen different countries and working with various organizations helping in orphanages and connecting with children. The creation of this philanthropic company has been an exciting and rewarding way to unite her love of fashion with a humanitarian effort near and dear to her
Lozz Dozz stands for "Love the Orphans in Zambia and Zimbabwe" and "Donate to Orphans in Zambia and Zimbabwe," and is a symbol of the brand's dedication to their message. According to UNICEF, these two countries alone account for approximately 48 million orphans looking for a helping hand, which is where Lozz Dozz steps in. Currently the brand offers two different collections that are made in the USA sweatshop-free and a fundraising platform that lets schools, church groups, and clubs join in on the action.
Their flagship Buy 1 Give 1 collection is just as it sounds. For every t-shirt purchased they donate one of their comfy pieces to an orphan in need. Their shirts are designed for kids ages five to twelve, and feature seven different designs in vibrant hues. This includes fun patterns like the Nigel Green Tee, Issac Tee and more.
The Project Orphanage line is focused on raising $100,000 in order to build a state-of-the-art orphanage in Zambia. They've decided to pledge 50% of the proceeds from each sale of this special retro-inspired collection to go towards the fund, and are well on their way towards success.
