Noticed something different about us? From today, you’ll notice a shiny, new button on our checkout page.
Every time you buy from us, you’ll have the option of adding £2 to your order total, to donate a Mum & You essentials box to a UK children’s centre.
Earlier this year our friends at Save the Children introduced us to the important work children’s centres do to improve the lives of babies and young children whose families are struggling financially.
They work to improve the health and lifestyles of families, providing essential support to people in a wide range of difficult situations. This is where your donations come in.
Each box we donate will contain a set of nappies, plus an Anytime Anywhere Handcream for mum. We used to think handcreams were a luxury item, until we had babies, but constant hand washing and sterilising can leave skin sore and in need of looking after. We’ll also be sending a book with each box, so that mums living in financial strain can give their baby a gift this Christmas.*
Donations are a big part of Mum & You. When the company began, its founders committed to putting 1% of sales aside to help mums in need, but soon we were committing much more than that to see Save the Children, The Trussell Trust food banks and refugee charities stocked with our nappies and wipes, providing essential care for families.
So, if you can spare a little extra when you order, you’ll be helping another family here in the UK. All for less than the price of a coffee.
*Sorry for mentioning Christmas. We know it’s only November, don’t hate us.
