Escapada Living Children’s Fund Outing

Did you know that Escapada Living has its own charity? In addition to supporting various local and national philanthropies, we also created the Escapada Living Children's Fund in 2014. The organization supports two orphanages near our factory in Indonesia, and we're thrilled to be a part of these children's lives. Read on to learn more + see photos from a recent outing the kids took with the Children's Fund!

Our factory is located in Indonesia, and Andrew, our production manager, has lived there for more than 17 years. He has developed strong ties to the local community during that time, and it was his idea to start the Children's Fund nearly two years ago. It all began when two girls who lived near the factory were orphaned and needed help. Andrew and Natalia, Escapada Living's owner, rallied to provide school supplies, clothing, food, and other necessities for the girls. The Fund has come a long way since then, and now it supports more than 20 children from two local orphanages.

In addition to supporting schooling and care for these children, the Children's Fund also allows Andrew to take the kids on fun monthly outings. From pool days to holiday parties, he's deeply involved in their lives and loves spending time with them. Sometimes the employees from our factory even join him on these outings - giving back to the community is the perfect way to bond as a team!

These photos show one of the group's recent activities, a day of fun and games in the park. We might not be completely familiar with all the games they're playing, but one thing is very clear: everyone is having a great time. They even have matching Escapada Living jerseys!

It warms our hearts to see these photos, and we're are so thankful that Andrew is able to share them with us. Beyond that, we're even more thankful that we're able to help this group of kids. The Children's Fund is only continuing to grow, and we can't wait to see where it goes!
