Three Graces London to support homeless charity Crisis in protecting the vulnerable through Coronavirus outbreak
For three full weeks, from Wednesday March 18th to Wednesday 8th April 2020, Three Graces London will donate 100% percent of net sales from all products sold on threegraceslondon.com to homeless charity Crisis, to support their efforts to protect the homeless through the Coronavirus outbreak.
Three Graces London founder, Catherine Johnson, said:
“Whilst we retreat to the safety and comfort of our homes, I want to spare a thought for those who don't have that luxury. By supporting the incredible work of homeless charity Crisis, we hope to be able to play a small part in helping those who are at their most vulnerable and alone.”
Crisis is the UK’s national charity for homeless people. The charity believes that in 21st Century Britain, everybody should have a place to live.
78% of homeless people report having a physical health condition, compared to 37% for the general population – with conditions usually associated with older age more common amongst the homeless. Meanwhile, the average death of someone who is homeless is 45: substantially lower than the average person.
Now, in the midst of the Coronavirus outbreak, Crisis is calling on national governments and local councils to take emergency measures to ensure people experiencing homelessness can access testing and self-contained accommodation with private bathrooms.
Jon Sparkes, Chief Executive of Crisis, said:
“We’re enormously grateful to Three Graces for choosing to support us by donating all of the profits from their online sale."
“With the coronavirus outbreak, we’ve had to postpone some of our usual fundraising events - so the money raised by Three Grace’s generous customers will help to ensure we continue to support thousands of people to leave homelessness behind by providing one-to-one services, education and training.”
“I know that, like me, lots of people are wondering what they can do to help their community in this time of urgent need” said Catherine. “I hope that this provides a unique and meaningful way for shoppers to give back and have a positive impact on society’s most vulnerable – whilst also, of course, helping to support all of the amazing artisans across Europe who contribute to making beautiful garments for Three Graces.”
