We’re SO thrilled to announce that we’ve now met our £500.00 fundraising target for Crohns and Colitis UK! They’ve been such a fab charity to work with, and I’d like to say a special thank you to Corporate Partnerships Officer Rachel Covey for all her support and general loveliness over the course of the year. Yay!
That means it’s time for us to reveal our next chosen cause, and it’s one that’s particularly special to me personally… because it’s Smile For ME! The charity was founded by Alice and Gracey back in 2012, and sends personalised smile parcels to deserving recipients living with M.E, who can be nominated via their website. Alice and Gracey were two of the very first friends I made back when I was first becoming ill- they’re the most thoughtful and caring girls, and it’s been so wonderful to see them found the charity and watch it go from strength to strength.
We hope to raise £500.00 for Smile For ME, to help them spread as much love and good vibes as possible to those who are feeling isolated. AND our first twenty orders will come with a free Smile For ME wristband, kindly donated by the team! Shop now on our Etsy page.
Smile For ME will be our ninth new chosen cause, joining the following organisations who we’ve previously fundraised for:

ME Association: £500.00
