February 2022 - Tree Update

February 2022 - Tree Update

Thank you for your Valentine's Day orders this month!  In February your orders helped plant trees in Tanzania as part of the Usambara Biodiversity Conservation project.

This project works not only to restore and maintain biodiversity in the Eastern Arc Mountains but also to educate and engage communities.  Population growth has meant illegal and unsustainable use of nature reserves in the area due to the need for building materials, cooking fuel, and other tree products.  By assuring adequate tree availability to communities in the Usambara Mountains, the project will be able to avoid the unsustainable illegal use of the Reserves and help the environment to thrive again.

Conservation work is a complex issue but we are proud to be able to help work with charities that help the new generation to understand¬†how environmental conservation works to their benefit.¬†ūüĆĪ

Christmas Jumper Day 2021

Christmas Jumper Day 2021

This December we are dusting off our Christmas jumpers ready to celebrate Christmas Jumper Day 2021!  

This annual fundraising event is taking place on Friday 10th December this year and we are super keen to get fundraising for this very worthy cause.  Like last year we will be donating £1 from every sale of our Save the Children 'Christmas Hug' Bauble.

These beautiful little baubles are a thoughtful way to send a hug to somebody you are unable to see this Christmas. Personalise with the name or names of who the hug is from to create a sentimental gift to bring a smile to your loved ones face year after year.

If you don't fancy buying a bauble this year (perhaps you already have one from last year!) but would still like to help you can text our special team code TEAMTDBC to 70050 and you will donate £2 to Save The Children.

If you are feeling particularly generous you can also head over to the Save The Children website where you can donate to them directly, find out more about Christmas Jumper Day and maybe even set up your own fundraiser!

Colour Friday!

This year our 'Give Back Friday coincides with the wonderful Holly Tucker's 'Colour Friday' campaign, encouraging people to shop with small businesses on Black Friday, rather than with big companies who can afford to slash prices.

As you may know, for the past few years we have decided to donate a percentage of our sales from the Black Friday weekend to charity. This year we have chosen the very colourful Rainbow Trust who help families with seriously ill children.

From 8pm Thursday 25th - midnight Sunday 28th November, we will donate 10% of each order to Rainbow Trust - both online and in store. We will still be planting a tree for every order online and purchases over £10 in our bricks and mortar store Roam.

Thank you for all your support again this year and for helping us to help others - it's truly the greatest gift.

Gift List : National Grandparents Day 2021

Gift List : National Grandparents Day 2021

Grandparents play such a vital role in society and this has been highlighted more than ever during the pandemic as families do the working from home/home schooling juggle! 

Thankfully, technology has meant that families are able to keep in touch with grandparents but sometimes it's nice to be able to reach out and show them just how much you care.  

So to help celebrate National Grandparents Day this year on 3rd October we have put together a gift list full of great present ideas for Nanny and Grandad...or Granma and Papa, whatever you call yours, we've got a fab gift for them covered!

Our Personalised Rainbow Hug Photo Print is a thoughtful gift for grandparents who have missed seeing young grandchildren.  A lovely way to display a treasured photo along with what became a symbol of lockdown for many families, a rainbow!

Send Nanny and Grandad a super soft hug with our Personalised 'Evergreen' Hug Cushion! We have a wide range of snuggly cushions, send yours with a personalised message or even pick one of our popular Hug Across The Miles designs to send a meaningful hug no matter the distance between you.

Our Personalised Solid Oak Wooden Photo Block is a lovely way to capture photo memories or moments that grandparents may have missed during lockdown.  Explore our range of wooden gifts for the perfect way to send your favourite photos to grandparents this year.

We have all been thinking more about our families during these unusual times and many of us have been looking back at happy memories and hoping to recreate them again.  If you have a collection of family photos our Personalised Vintage Photo Timeline Print is a fantastic way to collect them together and would make a thoughtful gift for grandparents.

Finally, perhaps you have been missing a simple chatter and a cup of tea with your granny.  Let her know that, wherever you both are, you are thinking of her while having a cuppa.  Our 'A great Big Hug from...' Your Location Ceramic Mug is a simple yet effective way to show you care.

June - Tree Update

June - Tree Update

We can’t quite believe we’re half way through 2021 already! Where on earth have the past six months gone?! We hope you are all doing okay and enjoying the extra few slices of freedom we were given last month. 

If you are in need of a positivity boost today, you might like to know that throughout the month of June your orders will be replenishing the essential forests of Bore, in Kenya. As well as this, the local Kenyan farmers will be educated on finding ways to grow new food crops. This will reduce the stress on their existing tropical forest, and mean that the trees will be able to thrive and enhance the all important ecosystems.

Six different species of tree will be planted in the area, including Eucalyptus. Doing this will help squash the deforestation rates, and benefit the 5,000 strong community in a variety of other ways too.

If we do not act now and act fast, our world is going to overheat. We need to protect and conserve the planet‚Äôs tropical forests before it‚Äôs too late. We are hoping we will at least make a small difference this month, with the help of our reforestation partners and yourselves¬†of course. ūüíö
