Guys, I’m struggling with something. I fear my girls don’t have a large enough concept of the world.

You know what I mean?

Like, this little, safe cushion we’ve provided for them is lovely. They have a warm home in the winter, food and snacks each day, and a cozy bed to sleep in each night. They attend an incredible school only minutes from our home. They are well loved and well cared for.

And they have no idea the struggles others kids their age face every single day. Truthfully, (and sadly) most of us don’t know.

It’s hitting me this holiday season. I want to do more. I want to give back. And maybe, more importantly, I want to teach my kids to do the same.

Here’s where Vivaio Days can help. This family business was founded in Santa Monica, CA by a family who is originally from Europe. They feature a large variety of premium and niche, green and ethical brands for babies and kids; from clothes and toys, to baby care and other accessories.

It’s a great place to shop for unique gifts.

But more importantly, their passion behind their brand is the story that must be told.

Every gift you purchase counts as double gift. Meaning, every item you buy will send a deserving child to school somewhere in the world – including meals and healthcare. You can also connect with the child you sponsor.

Let’s pause on that for a moment.

For every $20 you spend, you send a child to school for a day. Guys, this is something we all take for granted. My kids walk to school each morning. There has never been a doubt in my mind that they couldn’t attend, and eat warm meals, and learn in a clean environment.

But so many can’t. We can help.

Vivaio Days handpicks every product they sell, without compromising quality, aesthetics, sophistication, performance or taste. Each item respects the environment, society and customers’ wellness. They even create baby/kid gifts for any age, taste, sex and price points. Gift sets are delivered in sustainable baskets and pouches wrapped with fine lokta sustainable paper.

Here’s what I love. Yesterday, I sat down with my girls and showed them these products. Then I explained how we can help another child their age, just by clicking the purchase button.

I think they’re getting it. I hope they’re getting it. I’m trying to teach my kids the reality of this world so they can turn around and make it a better place.

I hope you are too.

I’ve posted more details about Vivaio Days below, including details on how to purchase gifts, how to find them online and their social media links. Plus – a special discount code just for Her View readers! I want to also mention the incredible details and beauty of these products. We have the gift package for baby boy, and it’s so sweet. From one mama to the next, I’m certain this will make a great gift!

Use the code DOUBLEGIFT – good for 15% on each order (one per order) and can be used at checkout. Good through December 31, 2016.
