Spring for Change X War Child

Springtime is all about bringing change into the world and with this theme prominent in our minds, we turn our attention to those in need of life-changing support. 

We are proud to introduce our new Spring for Change campaign in aid of our partner charity, War Child UK.

How They Help

War Child are a charity whose aim is to protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children affected by war. Covering four main areas: protection, education, livelihoods and campaigning, they work with children in 9 countries and by 2019 they aim to reach 260,000 children.

By keeping children safe, giving them an education and equipping them with skills for the future, War Child’s work is life-changing. Their most recent work has been opening a new space for Syrian children in Jordan, expanding their work to another camp where they can support even more children and families. The new space will host a range of activities from pre-school education to theatre and storytelling workshops for children aged between 4 and 17.

“We are particularly excited for the first War Child youth magazine to be published. We’ll be providing workshops for 320 young people in creating writing, videography and photography. They’ll also be able to use these new skills to create and publish their own magazine.

But it’s not just young people and children who will benefit. The project will also give 400 parents access to training on how to better support their children’s learning at home. 

In total, the first phase of the project will reach over 2,000 children and parents.” – War Child.

Previous Campaigns

We created many campaigns in the last year to help raise funds for War Child. We are proud to announce that in the last 16 months we have raised a total of £25,116.

Greatest Gift

Throughout December we ran a campaign to help give the greatest gift to children in conflict by helping to make a positive difference in their lives. With this campaign we donated 3% of all sales made online, to War Child.

Believe in Change

For every item purchased from our charming Sweet Dreams and Rainbow Unicorn collections online and in-store, we donated £1 to War Child.

Sweet Dreams

This campaign saw £1 donated to the worthy cause from the sale of eight Sass & Belle favourites from the Sweet Dreams collection because every child deserves sweet dreams. 

Office Fundraisers

At Sass & Belle HQ we have held many successful fundraisers including our Halloween Bake Sale, Christmas Jumper Day and a picnic raffle! We will continue to hold these events dedicated to helping War Child continue their wonderful work.
