BRRRR what has happened to the temperature? As we plunge into winter we’ve got a few warm and cosy ideas for you that give back to charity at the same time.
This year on Friday 15th December there will be an official Christmas Jumper Day in aid of Save the Children. We are super prepared here at NOYC and have been to The FMLY store www.fmlystore.com. Fifty percent of every purchase of the celebrity designed Christmas jumpers will be donated to Save the Children. We love model Erin O’Connor’s “Elfish Mother” design or for those somewhat devoid of Christmas spirit – perhaps the “Grinch” design by David Gandy. As of July 2017 the FMLY store have donated over £612K to their chosen charities through the sales of their “good tees”. For every good tee sold £5 is donated to the fund. Current charities supported are Women for Women International, KIDS, Help Refugees UK, The Refugee Council, mothers2mothers, Starlight UK, YAZDA, Prostate Cancer UK, Stand Up To Cancer, Tommy’s the Baby Charity, Save the Children, Little Green Pig & Breast Cancer Haven.
Head over to www.myoddballs.com who can keep you cosy from head to toe. The Oddballs Foundation raise money and awareness for Testicular Cancer and first started off selling men’s boxers, fetchingly modeled by the likes of James Haskell, Mike Tindall and our favourite Lewis Moody. Now their range has expanded to socks, bobble hats, women’s underwear (as tested here and no we won’t be modeling them for you, but can attest to their comfort and fun designs) and much, much more. You’ll find loads of ideas for stocking fillers for the man or lady in your life. In fact if you spend over £35 you get a free “Obble hat” worth £14.99.
For when it’s time for the land of nod, Hush clothing www.hush-uk.com have released a special Nightsky pajama set with matching eye mask, created in partnership with the charity Refuge. It may not be the cheapest pair of pajamas that you wear or gift but a whopping £52 is donated to Refuge for every pajama set sold. That £52 is the equivalent of one night in a refuge for a woman and her children including essential practical and emotional support.
We’ll be giving you many more ideas in the run up to Christmas of gifts you can buy that give back to charity at the same time but until then keep cosy, sleep tight and happy shopping.
