Social enterprise Pocket Hero produces clothes for kids that suffer from diabetes.
Each garment has a convenient pocket for the insulin pump.
Everyday heroes are our future
Everything started from a simple wish to help my friend’s little boy do what kids do while wearing his insulin pump … and became a beautiful and sustainable clothing collection for all our little ones. The first piece I sewed was about five years ago, and from that moment on my free time became consumed with reading everything I could about diabetes. Being a mom of two active kids, seeing their daily life up close, drove me to take action.
In 2019 I won a social entrepreneurship competition, and “Reach for Change” (www.reachforchange.org), and the “Ella Fund” (www.theellafund.com) decided to back my dream of helping kids with diabetes. From that moment, my dreams became my mission.
We remember being kids, too. Playing outside, making secret treasures from the most beautiful flowers covered with pieces of glass. Our clothes have secret pockets to keep treasures safe and close – shiny pebbles, hidden sweets, tiny toys, jingling keys and, for some, insulin pumps.
The future belongs to kids, and our pocket heroes’ smiles will make our world happier.
We love your TYPE, and let kids do what kids do.
