This season we are proud to support Mothers to Mothers (m2m), an International non-profit organization focusing on bolstering African healthcare systems, while delivering empowerment opportunities for women. From their launch in Cape Town, South Africa in 2001, m2m have developed to address the causes and effects of HIV, delivering benefits at almost all stages of life. m2m employ, train and help to empower HIV-positive women as community health workers. These “Mentor Mothers” work in local communities, supporting understaffed health facilities to ensure that women and their families get the health advice and medication they need and are supported on their treatment journey.
In support of their work, we at Les 100 Ciels have committed to donate the profits of the sales of our Kasia 100% Cashmere jumper to the m2m cause. As part of this commitment, we organised a workshop in collaboration with The Yard Café in London, inviting the members of the Mama Club and our customers, to join together to take part in an embroidery class and awareness raising talk. The aim of this event was to support a good cause and build awareness of m2m amongst our customers and the general public.
With the help of a sewing tutor, we have created about 20 embroideries, inspired by the m2m logo, which will then be pressed on our Kasia jumpers and sold in store.
We want to provide our customers with more information about worldwide issues, while offering the best products with the highest quality. We hope to not only help less advantaged people to have better living conditions, but also to share the message that there is so much we can do as a brand and individuals. If you would like to give a thoughtful gift this year and contribute to a good cause, you can find the Les 100 Ciels X m2m jumpers online and in our St. Christopher’s Place store!
