Imagine being able to quickly and easily transform any room into a magical scene that will engage your child’s imagination and fuel their creativity-now you can! Pop and Lolli is a new company launched in October of 2010 specializing in high quality re-stickable, eco-friendly, designer wall decals. Pop and Lolli is set to ignite the world of children’s decor with their modern designs, quirky illustrations and modern color palette.
Mia is the creative mind behind Pop and Lolli and I caught up with her via email to ask a couple of questions about what inspires her to create & to fill us in about her recent trip to South Africa. Mia was there making the first charitable distribution as part of Pop and Lolli’s (it’s) chic 2 change social responsibility program. Her answer is a great example of how having a social component to your business can inspire community, meaningful change and creativity too!
Mia: For every set of Pop & Lolli experience design decals purchased, (it’s) chic 2 change provides educational materials and resources to positively influence South African children in need. We recently visited South Africa and made our very first charity distribution. Born and raised in South Africa, I have always wanted to give back, and decided it was the ideal opportunity to realize a life long dream and incorporate my very own charity, (it’s) chic 2 change, along with the launch of Pop & Lolli. We aspire to help children in need, and are partnering with a wonderful South African charity, I Am Changing The World, as they have their finger on the pulse and know exactly what and where the needs are. The other bonus, and chic 2 change requirement, is that 100% of our donated dollars get applied to the children in need, and nothing is wasted on admin and other 3rd party fees!
We are proud to say our very first charity distribution influenced 800 high school students from Illenge High in Vosloorus, Gauteng, SA. Our donation helped them build a school hall so they can assemble under a roof and be warm during the icy cold winter months. We have ensured a safe environment in classrooms by re-installing electrical wires which previously were dangling exposed right next to the kids! And we were able to put doors on classrooms which didn’t have any. We are also working towards upgrading/installing extra bathrooms, provide food boxes, and many other things. There will always be a need, and we are happy to help facilitate change!
Mia sent me a sample of her decals to review and they are every bit as easy to use and fantastic as they claim to be! I am excited to offer you all a 10% discount off of your Pop and Lolli order until the end of January by using the code OMHG10 at checkout.Be sure to send us photos of your decals in action!
