10 Colors – 10 Charities – 10% Donations
Because not everyone has the chance to have a comfy home, we decided to take action at a social level with our 10-10-10 campaign: we selected 10 colors for our ready-made blankets and each color represents a different Charity that we donate 10% of our sales’ profits to. Our ambition is to raise awareness to the causes these Charities fight for through our creations and to contribute to the honorable work they achieve, for people as well as for animals, in our own way and according to our means.
Note however that selecting a color does not mean that a portion of your purchase goes exclusively to the associated charity. Rather, the total donation is divided evenly between the different charities. We’ve decided to do this because we feel no one cause is superior to any other cause since these organizations all work for causes that lay close to our hearts.
