How to support | Charities

Unfortunately, for many charities their usual forms of raising money were disrupted due to the current crisis. Although many fundraising outlets had to shut, people are still being creative and finding new ways to raise money. There are still ways you can support some amazing causes from home and we've put together a list of some great online charity shops that are still open for business.

Amnesty International work in collaboration with New Internationalist to offer the online Amnesty shop. All profits from this goes towards supporting the invaluable work Amnesty International undertakes. The products they stock all follow their ethical buying policy, offering a great variety of organic, fair trade, recycled, educational and eco friendly options.

The Big Issue

"Our mission is to dismantle poverty by creating opportunity, through self-help, social trading and business solutions." The Big Issue

Many of the vendors from the Big Issue have not been able to go out and sell due to lockdown, because of this the Big Issue has now made their magazine available online, so you can still buy your weekly copy and support those working for them - and enjoy the weekly content!

Another way you can help support is over at their online shop! With their focus being on stocking brands that put people and planet first, they make ethical shopping accessible across a wide variety of categories. Available are some amazing prints from their 'Street Art' collection created by members of the Big Issue, providing them with an outlet for creative expression. There are also some lovely hamper sets available which can be a perfect way to send someone you love a little treat.
