To all of our lovely customers,
Earlier last month, we pledged to donate 10% of our sales from May + June to the Black Lives Matter Movement. After careful consideration in choosing the right charity that truly means a lot to our company, we decided to choose Black Pride, a charity we support deeply and it seemed fitting as this year marks the 50th anniversary of annual LGBTQ+ Pride traditions.
Given the urgent appeal and crisis occurring in Yemen, we think it’s important to help out as much as we can (no matter how big or small). Therefore we decided to split our profits between two charities: Black Pride and the Yemen crisis.
Thank you for all the support and purchases made in the last two months which have allowed us to support the charities below.
@ukblackpride, a grassroots movement that advocates, fights for, supports and celebrates LGBTQ people of colour
@monarelief, a national independent, humanitarian relief and development organization based in Yemen
$120 to Mona Relief
our donation provides three families with a food basket: 25 kg of flour, 5 kg of rice, 5 kg of sugar, 2L of cooking oil and 1 kg of powdered milk
£50 to UK Black Pride
our donation goes towards their annual celebrations (digital/physical), community outreach, hardship funds
Thank you for joining us on this journey, this has been our very first donation as a company and we are excited for what the future holds us!
Love, Albana and Swim by Alba x
