Supporting Charities this Black Friday weekend...
4 Days. 4 Great causes.
Though we want you to enjoy shopping our sale with 20% off everything, we believe Black Friday is not just about buying lots, but about giving back too. That's why this Black Friday weekend we've picked with 4 charities to donate a portion of our Black Friday profits to. We'll let you know what we raise. We've chosen Epilepsy action, Diabetes uk, Links international and The Ocean Cleanup as they are important to us, are local or we have personal connections to them. Here's a little bit about each of their mission statements...
The first charity we're supporting this weekend is Epilepsy Action, a charity very close to our hearts. They campaign and provide for people affected by Epilepsy to have better lives in the UK. They do this through better healthcare services, as well as improving awareness and understanding of the condition, to ensure everyone with Epilepsy is treated equally and respectfully.
The next charity we're supporting this weekend is Diabetes UK, which is once again very close to us at P&M due to family members being affected by the disease. This charity raises awareness for and supports people with Diabetes, through online resources, a help line, support groups, events and so much more. They also invest money into life-changing research to help find a cure to diabetes.
The next charity we have picked is Links International. The majority of the world still lives with injustice, insufficient healthcare, extreme poverty and the right to basic dignity; we can all feel pretty helpless as to what on earth we can do about it. Since 198, Links International has worked to provide training and resources to partners around the world. Their goal is to empower, bringing strategic, sustainable, solutions to confront poverty, to create potential and to facilitate connection.
Finally, we have picked The Ocean Cleanup. Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the oceans, primarily from rivers. And the plastic that’s afloat within the oceans isn’t going away by itself. To effectively solve the problem, we need to both turn off the tap and mop the floor at the same time. The Ocean Cleanup, a non-profit organisation, is developing and scaling technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. Our aim is to put ourselves out of business once the oceans are clean.
