FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Grounded Kidswear teams up with CHLA to raise funds for pediatric care in the month of May.
Los Angeles, CA May 4, 2016 – Grounded Kidswear pledges 20% of all apparel sales proceeds to benefit Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
Since opening its doors in 1902, Children's Hospital Los Angeles has told the story of exceptional leaders advancing and transforming a community in support of the health of children. CHLA was founded at a time when few people thought a hospital for children was possible, let alone that it could -- or would -- evolve into one of the world's outstanding pediatric healthcare facilities. Los Angeles-based apparel company Grounded Kidswear supports the vision of CHLA to create hope and build healthier futures.
Each month, Grounded Kidswear pledges a portion of the proceeds to charities and hospitals like CHLA that are devoted to the well being of the youth. Founder Kathleen Siño was initially inspired to build the company while working on the pediatric intensive care unit at Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles. Charity organization The Art Elysium would send volunteers to the hospital to provide an escape for the patients through creative arts. “I knew I was creative, and I knew I wanted to help… but I didn’t know how to at the time”, Kathleen recalls.
The company took shape years later and is now a fully functionally corporation run from Kathleen’s 150 sq. foot home office. “A small business can run from anywhere if you can use your resources wisely,” she states.
It’s the “stay Grounded” attitude that Kathleen hopes will connect with families searching for products made with good intentions. Grounded Kidswear will be fundraising via apparel sales, and 20% of the proceeds will benefit CHLA. All items must be purchased online at www.butimgrounded.com and the final dollar amount raised will be announced via their social networks during the first week of June.
Grounded Kidswear is a family-owned company with the mission to make positive change in the world through staying grounded in love & community.
