On behalf of the Little Lotus team, I would like to wish you and your family a happy New Year. As our first year in the market, 2016 was an awesome year for us, thanks to your support!
In particular, we would like to thank you for your patience as we worked through our design changes. At Little Lotus, we have the highest commitment to quality and safety, and sincerely hope you love your products. We also would like to thank you for contributing to our mission to help save babies around the world with the Embrace incubator, which each purchase you make goes towards.
We also would like to celebrate our partnerships and collaborations with March of Dimes, Dr. Harvey Karp, DockATot, Loved by Hannah and Eli, Cake Maternity, Zoe Organics, Tiny Prints and lululemon. We're proud to stand by these brands.
Little Lotus began with the goal of saving one million babies in the developing world, but we also want to support preemies right here in the U.S. In conjunction with our partnership with March of Dimes, in which we contributed proceeds from our Signature Prints during Prematurity Awareness month, we also launched our Preemie Swaddle.
Earlier this year, I had the chance to meet President Obama again and updated him on our efforts since our initial visit to the White House in 2014. As we strive to help babies around the world, we’re so excited about our new partnership with One Heart World-Wide in Nepal, who began using the Embrace warmers earlier this year. We are continuing to work with Millennium Promise to help babies across Africa, and will be kicking off a new project with Nuru International next year.
We have a number of new prints and design collaborations coming up in 2017, which we will begin launching in late January. We’re also planning to launch some new product lines this year, so stay tuned.
To further our social mission, we are working towards getting the Embrace warmers to the places of greatest need, including Syria. We are currently in discussions with nonprofit partners working on the ground there; if you are able to help in any way, please contact me directly.
It's been an incredibly busy year, and we can't wait to show you what 2017 has in store for us. Again, thank you for your continued support and for joining us in our mission to help parents & babies everywhere. Here's to a great 2017 for you and your family!
