Fior Di Loto
Since 2018, we’ve been proud to offer people a way to do Black Friday differently. For us, it’s an opportunity to support lasting positive change and to help give girls a vital education at the wonderful Fior Di Loto school in Pushkar, India.
For 2021, we want to send more girls to school than ever before – so we need your help!
We will be giving a third of all profits from Wednesday 24th November to Monday 29th November to the Fior Di Loto school. This Just Giving page is an option to donate directly to the school without having to buy anything.
For £220, the Fior Di Loto Foundation can educate one girl for a whole year, buy her uniform, shoes, and books and also provide her lunch and transport (and a lovely dress for their Diwali Celebrations). That's not a lot of money to transform one person's life through education! In fact, we think it's just about the best thing you can spend £220 on!
You can of course donate whichever amount you can (however big or small) - we are so thankful for your support with this initiative! Here are a few more details on what your money can buy;
• £7 will pay for a pair of school shoes
• £11 will pay for a school uniform
• £20 will pay for a set of books
• £40 will pay for transport to and from school
• £56 will cover food
• £100 covers exam fees and teachers
We're really passionate about ongoing, sustained involvement in communities (the school is near Ismail's factory so will impact the whole town), as we believe this is what makes true, lasting change to peoples' lives!
We've seen first hand the difference that Deepu and Mara (the Fior Di Loto founders) have made to girls' lives in the town so we know the money will be in safe hands and going to such an important use. Education is one of the most powerful and long-lasting ways to make change and reduce poverty, as it not only changes one person's life but transforms communities and futures.
It means so much to us that you embrace our vision of an ethical, sustainable business which tries to look out for people rather than exploiting them.
Our goal is £1000 which would sponsor 5 extra girls! Let's see if we can make it an even bigger donation this year and send more amazing girls to school!
