The women who lovingly created each of these adorable plush playmates are Syrian refugees whose families have been displaced to Istanbul, Turkey.  Through their skill and employment with Bebemoss and now partnering additionally with MADEx51, they are able to call attention to the refugee crisis stemming from the intense warring in Syria, as well as the plight of displaced women and children who have the same hopes and dreams that your own children have - a world of love and peace, of acceptance and value, of happiness and a future that is secure. 

When you purchase Leo the Lion or any of our Bebemoss pals, you are ensuring food and shelter for each of these children and their moms because you are providing them with work and wages.  "Imagine being in a new country without resources to provide for your family. Imagine wondering how you will afford to provide food for your children. While these are the stories of many women, we can help them together." - Izabela, founder of Bebemoss, LLC.
