Round Up for The Winch! Here's what your donation means
We are so excited to be able to support The Winch with our new Round Up initiative. When you check out online, you'll now have the option to 'round up' your purchase amount to make a donation. You can always opt out, but if you do participate, here's what you will be supporting!
Based in North Camden in London, The Winch's mission is to help each child succeed, regardless of their circumstances by giving them the opportunities and support they need.
If you make a donation, it will go to one of two areas at The Winch that we are so thrilled to help support. Here's a little more info about these programmes, in their own words:
FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAMMES
For too many parents, raising a child is a time of stress. Many in our community struggle to provide for their children, feel “trapped” in temporary accommodation,suffer from postpartum depression and more. We listen when parents tell us the resounding issue they face is in feeling isolated, facing challenges alone.
Poor career prospects fail to accommodate the talents of our young people. We help 16-25 year olds realise their potential, providing entrepreneurial support, increased confidence and navigation for those needing a little help to find their way, on their terms.
We help young adults to re-capture their zeal and dream big. We work with those designing their own clothes, starting a catering company or their own business offering business mentors, access to our maker-space, stitch cafes and opportunity to pitch their enterprise to win seed-funding.
87% of proceeds of the Round Up campaign go directly to The Winch. 13% go to the Round Up for Charity app, which automates this donation process for us.
