We hate hate.
As a brand dedicated to helping people express the greatest of care for their closest relationships, we are taking a stand against hate.
No one should ever experience what Chris and Melania went through last week.
They were brutally attacked and they were robbed — of some significant possessions, but also of their freedom to express who they truly are, their freedom to feel safe, and their freedom to exist in an accepting environment, which, in the year 2019 and during Pride month, should be everywhere and anywhere on this planet.
We’d like to help Chris and Melania get those things back.
We’ve set up this JustGiving page to help replace the material items that were taken from them, and we ask that anyone else who wants to take a stand against this kind of brutality donate what they can to help Chris and Melania get back on their feet.
We are not going to simply change our brand colours to rainbow for Pride month. We are going to do more. And we hope that you will join us. Because in this day and age, there is simply no space for hate and so many greater opportunities to care.
If you’re willing, please join us in filling up this space, and any other space with messages of love and acts of kindness. Because love wins. Always. XX

We have felt loved and cared for throughout this ordeal and are grateful to all the strangers who showed support. Please continue to fight homophobia, misogyny, and all other forms discrimination that still pervades our society, and extend the same kindness and sympathy we enjoyed to all victims of prejudice.'
