Luca was sent this sweet little bow tie from The Little Dapper Collection. This company has the cutest bow ties for your little men in your life. They also do amazing things for the community and for little ones with special needs and medical challenges. 




Here is a little more info about them:


The Little Dapper Collection was founded in 2015 and  specializes in creating bow ties and grooming little boys into dapper young gentlemen. They also help support children with special needs and unique medical challenges by donating 15% of the bow tie sales to children's charitable organizations. 

A few of the organizations that they have partnered with and donated to are the following: March of Dimes, Operation Smile, Jack and Jill Chicago Chapter, New York Foundling, Graham Windham, Pujols Family Foundation, National Black Child Development Institute, Rush Hospital, Shriners Hospital of Chicago, New York Presbyterian Hospital, etc. 

The Little Dapper Collection just recently launched a national campaign with Timeless Toys, LTD. in honor of National Hope for Children Day to help give back and build awareness for special needs children by promoting unity, inclusion, and positive change, while encouraging them to embrace the differences that make them beautifully unique. Please check out the recent press release that they distributed to media outlets for the campaign: click here to read the press release. 

As part of their campaign, they reach out to mothers around the world to send out free bow ties to their sons who suffer from rare diseases and illnesses. As well as give little hero bears to young boys who are currently in hospitals or orphanages who are in the New York and Chicago communities.  

The brand's founder Genesis A. Emery (as found on their website) stated that, "I want our company to be known not just for bow ties we create, but for feelings and emotions we stir up within people." 

Here is a little background of Genesis A. Emery (founder)'s story (as found on their website):



"The idea for TLDC came in part when Founder, Genesis Emery became pregnant with her first child Noah, whom she affectionately refers to as “Baby Noah.” After experiencing some post-birth complications – Baby Noah spent Christmas of 2014 and his first two months of life in Lurie Children's Hospital’s NICU. Because of this, Genesis felt a growing desire to move forward with her fashion brand while also giving back to parents and families in need. With that mindset, she is dedicated to giving back a portion of TLDC's revenue every month to charities and non-profits, many of which focus on helping families facing health complications, and for children in need of support."

​The bow ties are affordably priced between $20 and $30. The Little Dapper Collection offers handcrafted bow ties designed for every taste and occasion; whether its casual, formal, or in-between. 



As stated above, TLDC has partnered with Operation Smile. This month is National Cleft and Craniofacial Awareness and Prevention month. The founder's son, Noah, was born with a cleft palate. They faced so many challenges with him having a cleft palate but thankfully was able to get it repaired when he turned 1 years old. Without it being repaired, her son would have faced even more medical challenges and could have even passed away. So therefore,  this was one of the biggest reasons why she is a proud supporter of Operation Smile. Read more here about cleft lips or palates.
