While we are excited about our launch, we are also very aware and concerned about the current state of the world.
During these difficult times, there are 2 UK charities in particular that we want to bring attention to. We will donate 10% of all profits during our relaunch this June to support the following:
Food banks have seen a record demand since Covid-19 hit the UK. Across the country, many people have struggled to get access to basic food; this includes those who are homeless, low income frontline workers to professionals who have slipped through the net of government employment support and more.
The Trussell Trust, the UKs largest network of 1,200 food banks, provides emergency food and support to those living in poverty. They also tackle structural economic issues that lock people in poverty in the first place - they want to end the need of food banks.

The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust works with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to inspire and enable them to succeed in the career of their choice. They strive to create the systemic changes needed for a fairer society in which everyone, regardless of background, can flourish.
In 2020 the Trust will:
- Provide over 1,000 young people with careers guidance
- Support over 250 young people from BAME backgrounds through the trust’s flagship Building Futures programme
- Award up to £150,000 of scholarships and bursaries to support students who would otherwise struggle to stay in education.
