SMALL WORLD, BIG HEART
The special bonds of motherhood and family are both universal and incredibly personal as we cherish moments in our collective Small Worlds. The experience of motherhood bonds us across counties and cultures as we share in our love of little ones.
At basq, we are committed to helping the world’s most vulnerable children through our charitable partnership. basq Co-founder Kelli Kenny is a founding board member of Orphaned Starfish Foundation, founded on the belief that education is the key to escaping the poverty trap and a better future. Orphaned Starfish funds orphanages and homes for impoverished children throughout Latin America, Caribbean and Africa. The orphanages provide a refuge and safe haven for the children, and OSF funds the construction and operation of vocational & educational training facilities. Kelli and basq Co-founder Lauren Parisier are delighted that Disney’s Its a Small World is connected with UNICEF and the celebration of children throughout the world.
The adored ride was originally created as “It’s a Small World: A Tribute to UNICEF” for the 1965 New York World’s Fair. The ride recognizes that we together share this earth and take care of each other.
OSF currently support programs all over the world, specifically in the countries of Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, Haiti, Mexico and Panama. OFS is a 501(c) registered organization.
