SlickSugar: Look Good While Making a Difference {Review & Giveaway}

SlickSugar logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, mscoffee77!}

One of the beneficial aspects of having two daughters is being able to get twice the use out of my favorite articles of their clothing. There's just something so great about kids' apparel that makes me smile — whether it's the fun colors, cute prints, or trendy miniature styles... there are some pieces that I never want them to outgrow.

Those favorites in particular are the ones that not only demonstrate fashion and high quality, but are also unique, innovative, and have that extra stand-out-from-the-crowd aspect to them. After all, who wants to look just like everyone else?

The only thing that can make them even better? When a line of clothing doesn't only look good, but promotes doing good as well.

The latest company that I have been introduced to that does just that? None other than the unique and admirable SlickSugar.

SlickSugar teeThe entrepreneurial, family-owned business behind Belly Banter, a great line of pregnancy and newborn stickers, SlickSugar has teamed up with the nonprofit organization Little Kids Rock to support the importance of music in schools with their "Keep the Music Alive" Tee.

As music programs across the country have been reduced or even eliminated, Little Kids Rock has helped fill the void by restoring and revitalizing music in underfundedLittle Kids Rock logo public schools. Founded in San Francisco in 2002, the charity was started by an elementary school teacher who was frustrated at the lack of music funding in his own school.

Today, Little Kids Rock is one of the leading nonprofit providers of free lessons and free instruments to underprivileged children in public schools in 25 cities, resulting in an astounding 160,000 students. Bonnie Raitt, Slash, Paul Simon, B.B. King and Ziggy Marley are among the charity’s famous friends and supporters.

Having always supported the arts and music in schools, I was already loving the "Keep the Music Alive" Tee even before I had seen it in person. However, when a brightly-colored fun package from SlickSugar arrived, I was happy to see if this shirt would live up to promoting their great message.

gift wrappedSlowly unwrapping the soft, 100% cotton fabric, I was impressed with how thick and durable this shirt felt and the clear effort that went into making sure all of the seams and edges were well made.

SlickSugar reviewAvailable in sizes 6 months through 5/6, I had initially worried that the largest size would be small on Big Sister E, but instead found that it was a great fit. We were both excited about the sweet and colorful design and how such a cute, cheery bird could have such a powerful message.

kids clothingI love the idea of being able to promote as well as teach children about the importance of music in schools and send a message, even a tiny one, that school districts across the country need to restore and revitalize music programs that have been closed due to budget cuts.

Retailing for $26 (which means free shipping!), the "Keep the Music Alive" Tee and the rest of SlickSugar's great apparel and accessories (and don't forget the cute Belly Banter stickers for tracking expectant moms' progress or babies ages), can be found on their website. You can also find a selection of SlickSugar onesies and tees online at Target.com.

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to support Little Kids Rock and their partnership with schools in a stylish way, because...

One lucky person will win a SlickSugar "Keep the Music Alive" Tee
in their choice of size!
