Wapikka is a British teddy bear company with a mission to feed some of the world's most hungry, malnourished children. The company was started by Ian Carpenter, who wanted to build a business that wasn't just focused on making a profit and made a difference. The idea was sparked after a conversation with a grown woman, who still to this day couldn't spend a night without her bear!
Teddy bears are an important part in a child’s life. They are every child’s first best friend and teach us to care and look after something else when we’re young. There are millions of children around the world still going hungry and good nutrition is the foundation for every child to live a happy, healthy life. Wapikka is dedicated to providing children around the world with the food and nutrition to reach their potential. The main giving partner is a charity called Mary’s Meals.
