Our Story & Vision
A note from Charlotte, Founder of Sunchild.
SunChild's vision was developed whilst meditating in the Himalayas, as a way to keep children’s light shining. When I learnt to mediate my first thought was, where was this knowledge when I was growing up!?
Having lost my mother when I was two years old, my father then remarried and my childhood became a dark place. I developed a negative belief system of myself, as a result of a difficult home life. Thinking that the world was against me, I constantly was seeking for love and comfort outside of myself. This all changed the moment I learnt to meditate, it became very clear that I could achieve anything, having nature's full support and deserving all the love in the world.
My vision for SunChild was to nurture children’s lights with positive ‘I am statements’ so that they could grow with a positive belief system and that they can achieve anything! By giving children this knowledge we are reminding them daily of their natural state of bliss. They can grow confidently with a strong sense of Self, believing that they are beautiful, fulfilled and loved, just the way they are.
Having a background in Steiner education, I believe now more than ever it is so important to get children amongst nature. Especially with the huge rise of technology, gaming and social media. Not only for their physical but also social and mental health. This is why Sunchild’s ethos is to be outdoors and really connect to mother earth.
The cards were all created locally in Bondi with the art being handcrafted by our designer, Frankie. SunChild is all about empowerment, using all females to help create the magic. The cards truly have been consciously created every step of the way using only recycled paper and love, whilst donating 5% of profits to ‘Feel the Magic’ in loving memory of SunChild’s angel Mummy Kay.
We all hold a magical light inside and SunChild’s mission is to keep it shining.
Imagine a world where we all believe in ourselves and others? Imagine what that world would be like.
We enter the world as a whole Being, knowing exactly what our purpose is on this earth. As we grow through conditioning this light is lost, and our sense of belonging may become disconnected. Sunchild gives children the opportunity to connect back to their own unique selves, others and above all the light of nature’s support. We want to build the belief system that they can achieve anything, so that they may grow with resilience and a strong sense of self.
Our intention is to highlight the goodness in the world, that it is a happy place for children, full of love and joy. All our products are environmentally friendly made with recycled paper and no shrinkwrap! We donate 5% of all profit to ‘Feel The Magic’ to support children who are suffering from grief.
SunChild believes that it is never too early to know how magical and unique you are; that you hold everything you need within to create a life full of happiness.
