It's cool to care. Leiho simply means 'how are you' in Cantonese and sometimes that's all we need to ask someone to show that we care.
IT'S COOL TO CARE
Leiho is a lifestyle brand on a mission to make purchasing basic products more meaningful. We connect our products to the essentials that vulnerable communities need by giving you the opportunity to share one with another. Why? Because it’s cool to care!
Our journey begins with socks that help homeless communities, because clean socks are one of the most requested item of clothing at homeless shelters. Most of us are fortunate enough to put on a clean pair of socks everyday but unfortunately this isn’t an option for some. Tony, a man who was once homeless told us that "putting on a clean pair of socks really boosts your confidence and wellbeing for that day to get the help you need". Tony is just one of many and socks is just a start.
We hope that by sharing basic essentials with people who need it most, takes us all one step closer to fostering a positive difference in their lives. We're not saying a pair of socks or water will change someone's life but if it makes someone feel even the slightest more confident or better about their approach for the day then maybe that one day could change their life.
THE LEIHO TEAM
We often get caught up in our busy lives and forget to be kind to ourselves or take time off to do something good for someone else. You feel good when you do good and when we do good, it’s all of our kindness and compassion put together that really makes a positive difference in the world.
I hope Leiho inspires people to deliver more acts of kindness because at the end of the day, we're not only helping someone in need but we're actually improving our own wellbeing and self worth too.
Originally from Myanmar, I’ve had experience in working with NGOs to fight poverty in underdeveloped regions.
I believe that there is room for everyone to make a difference in this world with a simple act of kindness, no matter how big or small. Through Leiho, I hope to inspire people to be creative in the way they give back to their local communities!
