When you shop a local, individually-owned Kid to Kid store, you’re not contributing to a far-away CEO’s inflated bonus–you’re helping local families down the street send their daughter to soccer camp, pay for their son’s piano lessons, and you’re helping hard-working parents build a better life for their families. Shopping local keeps your money in your own community, and that benefits you.
Even the littlest shoppers are welcome at our stores! Kids come in through their very own entrance, the little pink door, and have fun in the designated play areas while their parents shop for great deals. Kid to Kid diligently checks each item for safety, and doesn’t sell anything that has been recalled by the CPSC, so parents can shop assured that what they buy will be safe for their kids. Sellers enjoy the easy selling process without the hassle of holding a yard sale or meeting strangers who answer online ads.
Kid to Kid provides a local place where one customers’ seemingly meaningless “thrifting” is multiplied to create major global change. By combining the efforts of Kid to Kid stores in various communities across the country, we’re able to hold charity sales to build tangible schools in Africa that change the lives of entire villages.
So many fast-fashion companies use unethical labor means to get product, such as poor working conditions, low wages and child labor, but not Kid to Kid. Instead, Kid to Kid puts money right back in the pockets of community members to recycle their unused things. Kid to Kid also provides a local place for customers to feel assured they’re shopping responsibly and sustainably.
Kid to Kid donates literally millions of items each year to local charities including Big Brothers Big Sisters, Salvation Army, Make-A-Wish Foundation, buildOn, and homeless shelters. Kid to Kid also donates $.05 to local charities each time a customer declines using a shopping bag, which adds up to hundreds of dollars each year.
