National Foster Care month is recognized every year in May, but to our family and our team at Lavender-Life Company, children in foster care are part of our mission and in our hearts every day of the year. Did you know there are nearly a half-million children in the U.S. foster care system…roughly the entire population of the state of Wyoming. That’s why supporting these kids is the cornerstone of our company. We strive to remind them how very much they are loved and cared for. And while children may be living in a temporary foster care situation, the Xander Bunny is a friend that can stay with them wherever they go, and for years to come.
Our Xander Bunny is a super-plush, ultra-soft stuffed animal that can provide comfort to children of all ages. It was created out of two things very close to our hearts – our love for all things lavender, and our experience with our precious grandson Xander, who was adopted from foster care. We witnessed firsthand what these children experience, and knew we could help make a positive difference in their lives. That’s why – for every Xander Bunny purchased – we give one to a child in foster care.
Lavender is known to be calming, to reduce anxiety, and to help with sleep – all of which are critical needs of kids in trauma. And the Xander Bunny is filled with fresh lavender flowers (grown at our farm) along with soothing Michigan cherry pits – which can be warmed to provide even more comfort. And now, our all-new Xander Bunny has a glow-in-the-dark heart on the foot. The heart stands as a reminder that the night may be scary, but they are loved and never alone.
The Xander Bunny truly does make the perfect companion for anyone who wants comfort and relaxation, and some soft cuddles. And most importantly, every bunny purchased means a child in foster care will get one too. In fact, more than 10,000 kids across the United States are enjoying their special bunny hugs because of wonderful people like you.
When you buy a Xander Bunny, know that you are helping to make a difference in the lives and hearts of some special, amazing children who need it most.
