Giving In December

Each December we try to focus on the giving element of Christmas. In part for us that means buying presents from fellow unique small businesses around the world, (directly from their websites) and sourcing all the components for our organic gifts from local suppliers. And in part that means supporting those who really struggle, particularly at this time of year.  

We are giving a minimum of 10% of all our December profits to local good causes, this year it will be the homeless and local food banks. People who need our help when the system fails them. 

We of course thank you for supporting us as a small local business with every sale and also thank you for helping us do a little bit to help those in our local community. If you'd like to help more this December here are a list of local homeless charities and food banks and contact details in the North East. They really need our help at this time and it's definitely worth giving them a call if you have old clothes you don't need anymore, want to contribute some food towards someones cold December, or just donate funds towards their cause.

That's my preaching over. 

Thank you

Chris
