THE CHARITIES WE SUPPORT
You will notice that when you shop you have to choose a charity to donate to before you can checkout. That's because 10% of each item you purchase automatically goes to one of the three charities we support. This amount is earmarked and twice a year we tally up the amounts and send out checks to the respective charities.
Each charity has been selected for the amazing work they do but also because their donations go directly to helping the causes they support rather than administrative costs.
To find out more about each charity check out the information below:
