Weʼre raising £5,000 to help vulnerable communities during the COVID-19 pandemic

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Many of our customers have been asking how they can help our artisans at this difficult time. Due to the exceptional and unprecedented scale of the current situation, we have decided to set up a JustGiving page to offer support to those most in need.

All funds raised through this page will go directly to the artisans and their communities. We will be distributing aid wherever there is the most need as this pandemic escalates.

UPDATE 27/05/20:

Thank you SO much to everyone that has donated so far, we've been overwhelmed by your kindness.

Thankfully, some of our artisans are able to work from home, and are also eligible for government grants. We have established those who are slipping through the net and have offered pre-payment on future orders, no-interest loans and with help from this JustGiving page, can now offer grants to the most vulnerable. We are also currently distributing regular food parcels in Ecuador and Peru where the need is at its greatest.

If you have donated and would like to know who your donation has gone to, please do get in touch! (Especially anonymous donors, as we can’t see who you are)
