The reason why...

There is this thing about becoming a parent that suddenly makes you realise what position we, as a human being, have found ourselves in. When you take home your new born child you suddenly see the world differently in the grand scheme of things and start to question the way we live our lives.

As a parent it is obvious you only want what is best for your child and it hurts when he or she is not feeling well and you can’t relieve the pain. It brings joy to see him or her playing outside, going to school, having fun and growing up without a care in the world. It's moments like that that make you realise; Our time and place on this planet is limited and you need to make the most out of it. The birth of our son made us question; How are we going to use our precious time to enjoy eachother and the world around us?

Choices we make every day influence not only ourselves but also the people around you. The way we treat our environment, the animals and how we leave things behind for our next generation is up to you and me. Can we make a change?

This new mindset and these thoughts pushed my wife and me on a new journey; Our new drive to be an entrepreneur and give something back at the same time is something we have combined in our new passion: Lévai's. Not just a new business, but more so a symbol for our children, our grand children and the following generations to come. Lévai's has a goal to create awareness for a better world. To show that charity and entrepeneurship go hand in hand together by supporting initiatives who make the world a better place.

About our family!

Just so you get to know us a little bit better and know what faces are behind the name of the brand; We are Mandy and Kevin (29 and 31 years old) and our parents have known each other since we were around eight years old. We grew up in different parts of The Netherlands and besides the occassional playdate, it took Kevin around ten years to finally ask me out on a 'grown up date', which he did in 2008! Since then, we are a loving couple and have passed a milestone or two before we finally landed in the place where we are now...

When we both started college in 2008, we rented a small apartment flat together where we both couldn't be happier to have a place of our own. Mandy took classes in her field of work as Management Assistent and Kevin as an engineer in Built Environment. After both graduating in 2012, we were lucky enough to buy our first home in a town near Rotterdam that could give us all we ever wanted and a place to start a family.

In 2017 we were blessed with the birth of our son Ruben who is now two years old and, who would have guessed, is the most adorable, cutest and pretiest baby boy that parents could ever wish for! We love him very dear and we can't wait to experience all the adventures with him that are yet to come...

And these two ofcourse...

But let's not forget our furry babies, Kircha and Jimmy! Before we became parents of Ruben, we were just the two of us in a small apartment flat. One day I decided to scroll around online and came across an ad for a 'free cat', and not much later, we were driving home with a new cat. His name is Kircha and now 13 years old and he turned out to be a Russian Blue breed. While looking for more information about the breed, we found the kittens so cute that we couldn't resist to adopt a kitten as well; Jimmy!

These two have been with us since 2010 and are, who would have guessed, the most adorable, cutest and pretiest cats a family could wish for!
