Our Mission

Willow Oaks Stories & Songs is a southern children's brand committed to changing the world, one family, at a time by giving a portion of our product and proceeds to support organizations that bring victimized children out of compromised positions – whether it be by partnering with a national technology company that finds exploited children, or by giving to a local domestic violence shelter that affords a mother and her child the opportunity to build an emotionally healthy home life.
