Blog Birthday Giveaway - Daisy Chain Baby

One of the things I've enjoyed most about blogging, is working with some fantastic small businesses. Yes, it's a bit of an ego-trip when a huge national or international company approaches you, but often there's no long-term relationship or two-way communication there.

What floats my boat more is working with independent retailers. People who've worked hard to build their business up from scratch and are passionate about what they do. These businesses really care about what people are writing in their reviews and what their customers think of them.




One business I'm really happy to have come across is Daisy Chain Baby.  I first communicated with Lins (like with Chocadores) over charity support for the Children's Trust.  Through this, I attended Daisy Chain Baby's first birthday party last year, at which they were raising funds for the charity.

Lins is passionate about volunteering and supporting causes dear to her, and I was overwhelmed by the amount of work she put in to organising the event.  They also continued to support the Children's Trust for the remainder of the year, donating 10% of their sales to the charity.

As well as working a full time 'day job' and volunteering in her spare time, Lins runs Daisy Chain Baby - an online eco-friendly retailer, specialising in organic and ethically sourced clothing, accessories and skincare for babies and toddlers.  She even finds time to keep up-to-date with her blog.  Seriously - talk about superwoman!  Not only that, but she's a genuinely lovely person and one I consider a 'real-life' friend!

Stocking an impressive range of eco brands including Little Green Radicals; Olli & Lime; Charlie Moo's and Aden & Anais, you can count on Daisy Chain Baby to stock the best in cool, eco clothes for kids.



Daisy Chain Baby are kindly offering this great Beatles Yellow Submarine T shirt by Little Green Radicals to one lucky reader.   In a soft marl grey and made from organic cotton with non-toxic dyes, this t-shirt features a vibrant yellow submarine depiction with the fab four making an appearance at the portholes.

Suitable for girls or boys, the prize t shirt is in a size 3-4 years (hmmm, wonder if I can enter this myself...!)

In order to win this uber cool kid's T Shirt, please compete the following:

Follow @daisychainbaby on Twitter and leave a comment here stating you have done so, including your twitter name.

For an additional entry, tweet the following, and return here to leave a separate comment that you have done so: "I'm entering @missielizzieb's blog competition to win a cool kid's T shirt from @daisychainbaby here http://bit.ly/qCDFzt"

This competition is open to UK entrants only. The winner will be chosen at random from all entries received by 8pm Friday 19th August 2011. The prize will be fulfilled by Daisy Chain Baby.

Don't forget to check my posts daily this week - there is a birthday giveaway bonanza going on!

Disclosure: Many thanks to Daisy Chain Baby.

  42. I can agree, these days that is not easy to run own small business. However I have took it as the rule to donating 10% of the sales to the charity. I hope it will make our World much better place to live.
