Something I was keen to involve when setting up my business was being able to give back to the community and striving to demonstrate an admirable ethos.
Although my platform is only small I wanted to add a string to my business that would allow me to educate myself on the importance of what is happening around the world as well as my local community.
To achieve this I will be donating a percentage of my proceeds every few months to a topical and inspirational charity.
For September I supported two charities: Show racism the red card and SARI (stand against racism and inequality). You can donate to SARI here: https://www.sariweb.org.uk/who-we-are/donate/
and show racism the red card here: https://www.theredcard.org/
UPDATE November 2020: £20 donated to the above two charities for September and Octobers support (See blog update).
November and December's chosen charity is the British legion Poppy Appeal which you can donate to here:
UPDATE January 2021: £10 donated to the above charity.
