As most of you know, each month I pick an animal charity that I admire to donate £1 to for every sale I make. For the months of April and May 2016, I chose The Dr Hadwen Trust, a wonderful charity I came across at Vegfest Brighton earlier this year. As the UK’s leading non-animal medical research charity, The Dr Hadwen Trust fund and promote the development of techniques and procedures to replace the use of animals in biomedical research. This is a cause which I feel extremely passionate about and am therefore delighted to be able to support, with the help of all of my amazing customers!
After a few awesome festivals (Kent, Croydon & Vegfest Briston) we have so far managed to raise just under £200! Thank you so much to all of my lovely customers for helping to reach this amount. If you’d like to buy some awesome statement clothing at a discount and help us to raise even more money for The Dr Hadwen Trust, head to jadegreenvegan.com/shop before 31st May and enter the code ‘DRHADWEN10’ to get 10% off your purchase!
When I created my compassionate clothing line at the end of last year, it was really important to me that not only would my clothing portray a positive message and promote kindness to animals, but also that it would allow me to give back in a tangible way to amazing animal charities that are out there making a difference. I therefore decided I would donate £1 for every item sold to various animal charities, rotating on a monthly/bimonthly basis. The wonderful charity I chose to receive these donations in December 2015 and January 2016 was Foal Farm Animal Rescue.
Foal Farm is an incredible no-kill rescue centre that has helped to save the lives of countless animals in need. They are currently fundraising for a much-needed rebuild of the dogs’ kennel block, in order to provide a better quality of life for the dogs whilst they wait for their forever homes, and of course to enable Foal Farm to continue to save even more dogs’ lives.
Thanks to all of your generosity, I was able to donate £107 to Foal Farm, which is absolutely incredible!
THANK YOU so much to each and everyone of you who purchased something from my line in Dec & Jan and allowed me to make this donation! You really have helped make a huge difference in these beautiful dogs’ lives, just through shopping – how awesome is that?!
I am so incredibly grateful to have such kind customers and am excited to help lots of other deserving animal charities going forward. If anyone knows of an animal charity that is doing amazing work & could do with some extra help, please comment them down below!
To celebrate making the donation to Foal Farm, my mum and I took Sadie – one of the beautiful dogs who is living at Foal Farm whilst she waits for her forever home – for a long walk and a pub lunch. Sadie did not have the easiest start in life, but inspite of this is so gentle, lively, cheeky & loving. She loved getting lots of fuss in the pub from the employees and other customers and would love more than anything for a family of her own. If you think you’ve got room for some unconditional love in your life and would like to adopt Sadie, head over to foalfarm.org.uk to fill out an application 🐾
