We built Hare and Bear after the arrival of our daughter, Elfa, who was born in December 2019. As first time parents, we very much experienced all the wonderful highs and all the challenges that having a newborn brings! We have since given birth to a second little girl, called Poppy.
The support from our friends and family was invaluable, and we wanted to be able to do something to support other new families on this bonkers journey of bringing a new baby into the world.
We live in a little village on the North coast of Cornwall. We love the Cornish lifestyle - sea, surf and occasional sunshine - and have used Cornish brands wherever possible to share our love for this wonderful place. We have also tried to ensure we source products that are from ethically and environmentally conscious companies.
We feel very lucky to have given birth to two happy and healthy little girls, and we wanted to give something back to people who are not as fortunate as us. We are giving 10% of our profits to Tommy's, a charity set up to fund research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth. Their target is to halve the number of babies that are lost during pregnancy or birth by 2030.
We hope that our boxes bring joy to people.
Emma, Lloyd, Elfa & Poppy
