To celebrate World Kindness Day we thought it would be a great opportunity to share some ethical small businesses who like ourselves offer gifts that do good.
Each business is partnered with a charity via Work For Good who are an online platform helping to bridge the gap between businesses and charities. Most businesses are unaware that you need a Commercial Participation Agreement in place before you can start raising money for charity through your sales and publicising it. Work For Good make fundraising much easier for all involved and believe all businesses, no matter how small can make a difference. We all know what small changes make when multiplied by millions of people, they change the world.
