For years now we have been boycotting ‘Black Friday’, bemused by all it represents, and the detrimental impact it has on the environment. Instead, we donate a large percentage of sales to helping those in need and have been buying warm thermal socks and menstrual pads/tampons for our less fortunate friends and handing them out through the remarkable London organisation ‘Streets Kitchen’. Jon, the founder and driving force, is a living angel and the work he and his team of volunteers do on a daily basis is nothing short of extraordinary.
It has been a real privilege to meet and work with Jon over the years and make deep friendships and connection with some of those less fortunate. We also have supported Malambo Grass Roots in Zambia, Kikora (helping street children) in Kenya, Swechha Ngo and Tara Girls in Delhi, and aim to work closer and deeper with these and more in the future.
