To launch our ‘Heads Up’ Campaign, we thought we’d do a round up of other small brands who are giving back to charity this Christmas - offering beautiful gifts with true meaning and that will benefit others, too:
This autumn we have launched a very special collaboration - for every 4 of our Italian merino wool kids bobble hats we sell, we will be donating one to the Oak Centre at the Royal Marsden Hospital, where children with cancer are treated. They are a really practical gift for any child undergoing cancer treatment as they are super soft for sensitive skin and merino wool is naturally efficient at helping the body regulate its temperature. Head’s Up campaign merino wool kids hats, £29, Lala & Bea - read more about the Head’s Up Campaign here.
£5 from every sale of a special edition lilac ‘Strong Girls Club’ tee from Muthahood (£24) goes to baby loss charity, Tommy’s and the work and research they do into reducing premature death.
From Babies with love give every penny of profit from their ethically sourced designs to orphaned and abandoned children around the world - we love their wooden toys and super soft muslin box sets.
We know all about The Big Issue publications - but did you know they have a store? The street art section represents ‘artists that have been marginalised’ and at least half the profits go directly to the artist, with the rest supporting The Big Issue’s charity work. There are loads of other sections - from kidswear to food & drink, books and gifts. Worth having a browse when doing your Christmas shopping.
