Why we're blacklisting Black Friday

Yawn has two sales per year, with occasional small discounts in our newsletters to thank you for your support. Why? Because we are a small independent business and believe in the value of our products. 

Rather than compete with the big guys this Black Friday, we're offering our support to those in need, in aid of a day we can get more excited about - #givingtuesday. 

From 9.00am on Black Friday 24th November - midnight on 28th November 2017, we'll be donating 10% of all order earnings to Solace Women's Aid.

The team selected Solace for this initiative because of the great work they do with women who have survived domestic violence. 

Established in the mid-1970's Solace worked with just 40 women survivors of domestic violence in North London. Since, they have grown to provide a range of services across London, supporting over 10,000 women and children alone last year who had been affected by sexual and domestic violence. 

With a mission to bring an end to the violence experienced by women and children on a daily basis, Solace work to empower their survivors and achieve independent lives, free from abuse.

We are looking forward to this fundraising effort and wish you all a happy weekend.
