Snoozie and Moose have teamed up with Roar Living to concoct an incredible range of hand-made cordials using the ancient process of pressing, infusing, crushing, grinding & steeping. 100% of profits go to global charity Destiny Rescue to reach their goal of rescuing and rehabilitating 100,000 young children from a life of slavery, violence and prostitution by 2020.

Our friend Tess from Monkey & Mum has launched a kickstarter campaign this week which aims to transform the lives of oppressed and impoverished Indian women, while also meeting growing demand for her fairtrade jewellery. Check out the short video below, get in early with your pledge, and snag yourself a sweet necklace!
Jess has partnered with the Mehera Shaw Foundation (MSF) in India who have connected her with women from a development group in Jaipur who were looking for a project to give them skills, confidence, and economic power. These women, most of whom are mothers themselves, have been oppressed by gender inequality, social constraints, child marriage, lack of education, or abject poverty.
An environmentally sustainable project, the Monkey & Mum necklaces will be made from organic cotton and silk off-cuts from Mehera Shaw’s manufacturing line, helping to convert their left over materials in to products of better quality and environmental value.

These guys are an online art collective who sell gallery grade posters, with the proceeds donated to charities selected by the artists. Below you’ll find my three favourite prints… buy one here!
