If you are in need of a unique gift idea for a special little girl in your life, and would like to infuse a personalized touch while also contributing to a worthy cause, look no further than Tutu Pour Mon Deux. French for "tutus for my two," Tutu Pour Mon Deux, enables you to design a whimsical 'tutu shirt' that is custom-made and hand-sewn to meet your specifications. The customization process, based online at the website, is very simple. The site walks you through the process of designing the tutu and provides a swath of options from shirt color all the way down to the ribbon detailing.
Erika Deady-Wohlers, owner of the company, seamstress and mom of two daughters, is not your typical entrepreneurial mom. Designer tutus were never in her master plan, that is, until her second daughter Maeley was born with a congenital heart defect. Requiring corrective surgery at a mere four days old and successfully recovering, Maeley and the family's entire experience at Children's Hospital Boston soon became the inspiration for the business. Wohlers, so deeply indebted to the baby tutus surgical team at the hospital and grateful that her daughter would live a healthy life, wanted to create a business that would bring smiles to little girls' faces and at the same time, raise awareness about congenital heart disease. The idea for the company was born and once off the ground, Wohlers decided to donate one-third of the proceeds from every tutu sold to Children's Hospital Boston.
Whether for a little ballerina or simply a little girl who likes a little hipness in her wardrobe, these tutus will delight everyone who comes across them. Even more so knowing that they are made from the heart.
