International Women’s Day is here, and some of the biggest names in homeware are taking part in the celebration.
Designers Guild, Rockett St George, and The White Company are amongst the home decor brands that are contributing a percentage of their profits to the #ChangeAGirlsLife campaign at The Prince’s Trust.
The #ChangeAGirlsLife campaign comes courtesy of The White Company’s founder, who calls the most esteemed brands in the business to donate some of their sales towards supporting vulnerable young women on this important day. So, if you’re dabbling with new decorating ideas from Addison Ross or a new antique from Rose Uniacke – today is the best day to make the investment.
Today, March 8th marks the third year of fundraising for the campaign – with a goal to raise £10 million/ approximately $13.1 million 5 years to aid The Prince’s Trust. To date, they have raised half of their target – but we expect the figure to increase this International Women’s Day.
‘As a patron for The Prince’s Trust for many years, I have seen time and time again what an enormous difference the work makes to young people in real need of a helping hand,’ Chrissie says. The founder adds that improving your home ideas will provide vital support to rebuild lost confidence and help young people move forward into a brighter future. This is through employment, further education, or the chance to become self-employed.
‘The [charity] can also offer a mentor and, most importantly, the opportunity to make a fresh start and build a much brighter future,’ she says.
From Pooky to Cath Kidston, there are now seven homes-focused brands taking part in the #ChangeAGirlsLife campaign 2022. But where should you begin for the best deals? While it’s easy to steal interior design tips and inspiration from all labels involved, we’re particularly taking note of the two deals below.
The White Company
Between 2nd–8th March (today), The White Company has pledged to donate £5 (approximately $6.6) to the campaign.
Throughout the entirety of March, Designers Guild is donating 10% of sales from this edit (opens in new tab) of online products to The Prince’s Trust. Whilst it's easy to add every item to your basket, we're particularly swooning over the pillow below.
Porcelaine De Chine Alchemilla Linen Cushion | £100 ($131) on Designers Guild (opens in new tab)
This intricately painted square cushion is a stylish way to inject some yellow into your scheme without sacrificing your neutral room color ideas (opens in new tab). Its trailing flowers and birds mirror the beauty of fine porcelain – without worrying about breakage.
We’re investing in the above (and more) before the clock hits midnight.
