As a company, we have made a pledge to be conscious of everything we do. From sourcing raw materials and promoting traditional craft techniques, to working with the small businesses that produce our clothing, we aim to give help support other communities around us.
We are so lucky to be involved in the business of children’s fashion; an enthusiastic industry where ideas and spirit are contagious. Since our founding in 2013, La Coqueta has regularly donated clothing and a percentage of profits to support children and their families around the world.
ELISA SEDNAOUI FOUNDATION
We had the pleasure to work with the Elisa Sednaoui Foundation, a foundation that works to promote accessible education that is both academic and creative, aiming to empower young children to realise their full potential and contribute to their communities. We gifted clothing to the foundation to pass on to the children participating in their education programs.
In El Salvador, La Coqueta worked alongside Glasswing International, a charity that invests in the existing strengths of communities via the mobilisation of resources. Whether that be monetary, humanitarian, or in our case clothing, Glasswing International distributes these resources, as well as food and medicine, to rural communities across South America.
Ukraine & Afghanistan
THE DISASTER EMERGENCY COMMITTEE
The Disasters Emergency Committee brings together 15 leading UK aid charities, raising funds to quickly and effectively respond to overseas disasters. In March 2022, La Coqueta donated £10 per £100 spent online, raising just under £15,000 to support crisis appeals in Ukraine and Afghanistan.
NSPCC & Little Village
La Coqueta donates clothing and samples to the NSPCC, the UK’s leading children’s charity that helps to keep children safe from abuse and neglect. The NSPCC provides therapeutic services to help children move on from abuse, as well as supports parents and families in caring for their children and helps professionals make the best decisions for children and young people, supporting communities to help prevent abuse from happening in the first place.
La Coqueta also donates to Little Village, a charity that supports families with babies and children under five living in poverty across London. They run a baby bank network, collecting, sorting and passing on pre-loved clothes and equipment, and parents are also supported by the dedicated guidance team who offer advice and links to other services.
La Coqueta has made donations for silent auctions and benefits, supporting NYC Moms For A Cause, MS Society UK and Walkabout Foundation.
Plant For The Planet
PLANT FOR THE PLANET
In 2020, La Coqueta made a pledge to help combat the climate crisis by planting 1 million trees in deforested areas of Spain and Mexico by 2024, in partnership with Plant For The Planet. Supporting PftP’s global 1 trillion trees campaign, the project seeks to build a better, greener future for the younger generations.
