I have some designs available that support charities. It's important to me personally to support charities where I can, so these pieces are created to offer you something special, while also supporting some great causes. Here are some of the pieces in this range so far, there will be more to come.
I get a lot of requests to donate pieces to fundraisers and there are a few events I already support locally. As I get so many requests though, I'm afraid this is something I can't offer to others. As a small business owner, I work on my business part-time around other employment. Running a business has lots of hidden costs and my income supports my family, so unfortunately it is not possible for me to give away lots of pieces. I just do not have the time or finance to cover this.
I do try to support charities in a way that is sustainable for me by creating these special ranges and I hope you enjoy them.
We Stand with Ukraine
I think we have all felt pretty helpless as we've watched on in horror at the war taking place in Ukraine at the moment. Like many other makers I have turned to what I know best to try and raise some money to support this cause. I will be giving 100% of the price of each mosaic to The Disasters Emergency Committee and just asking buys to contribute £2 for postage (UK only) on top of their donation (£20). I have raised over £500 so far. My hearts for Ukraine aren't for sale in my shop currently, but if you would like to buy one please get in touch.
NHS Hearts and Stars 2020-2021 - I made these as thank you gifts for our NHS heroes, or simply for to show support from their windows at home during lockdowns. The price included a donation of £3+ depending on mosaic size. I donated directly to the NHS and to the Red Cross helping the NHS during the pandemic.
Remembrance Poppies - I sold these in Autumn 2020 & 2021 to raise funds for the Poppy Appeal. It seemed more important than ever to support this charity while they weren't able to get out amongst the public to raise funds and awareness as usual.
To mark Pride month in June 2021, I donated £2 from every rainbow outdoor mosaic, and £1 from every indoor rainbow mosaic to akt, a wonderful charity which supports young LGBTQ+ people facing homelessness.
£1 from every outdoor garden bee mosaic I sell goes to Bumble bee conservation.
Whenever I make donations I post them on my Insta and Facebook accounts so that everything is open and you can see your money going to great causes...
