To provide equality of access to sports and hobbies for children by connecting families to enable them to buy, sell, swap or donate children's equipment at affordable prices.
Kidd3r is all about connecting people, whether that's locally or nationally, who want to help children fulfil their potential by enabling the re-sale and re-use of pre-loved kit. Many activities and clubs are seeing participation levels decrease. Kidd3r offers any organisation providing activities a platform they can signpost families to, which enables them to source affordable kit. If families wish to, via a slider donation bar, they are also able to donate a percentage of the sale of their items to organisation supporting children; a true circle of kindness.
The COVID pandemic and current economic trends have put many households into financial difficulty and even poverty. Making sports and hobbies affordable and accessible to all children, regardless of their economic situation is a cause close to my heart. Food and clothes are essential for living, but sport and hobbies have a huge part to play in children's physical and mental health and wellbeing.
The kidd3r concept aligns with the six of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These goals are a "shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future".
