Our work with Centrepoint
Helping to end youth homelessness with Work for Good
Being homeless means not having a safe space to call home. Violence, abuse, family breakdown and problems with mental health, often cause young people to become homeless because it's safer to leave home than stay. Many sleep rough every night, but there are thousands more sleeping on sofas, floors, night buses or with strangers. These are the 'hidden homeless'.
We have partnered with Work for Good who help businesses raise funds for charity, in only four years they have helped to raise £1.75m. They believe businesses can have a powerful, positive impact, whatever their size. Our collaboration with Work for Good focusses on supporting the youth homelessness charity, Centrepoint. We believe that it is incredibly important to drive change socially, environmentally and economically. We have a responsibility to make a positive impact and contribute to a fairer, more equal and happier world. Work for Good help us achieve this by providing a sustainable way to give back.
We donate 2% of all sales
For every sale at www.allaboutsleep.co.uk we donate 2% to Centrepoint through Work for Good. When we refer to our sales, this is our revenue - all of the money that the we make before the expenses are taken out. Many companies donate a higher percentage, but of their profits, this what is left over after all of the business expenses are taken out, such as advertising, stock, postage, packaging, the list goes on. We believe that donating from our revenue is the most transparent way of giving and generates the largest donation amount to charity.
