Get your charity on people!

I felt like Mr T writing that title but seriously read on about how you can help with a great cause.

Sheabutter Cottage is one of my favourite UK product companies and one of the longest running. A while back I interviewed the founder Akua (Click here to read interview) I also one of their products a staple in my skincare regime (check it out by clicking here).

One of the things I have always loved about them is that they run a helping hand programme and help people who are less fortunate.  Today I had to tell you about a project they are doing at the moment and the two ways you can get involved.

Currently Sheabutter cottage is working with Asikasu primary school which is is in the Eastern Region of Ghana – about 2hours’ drive from Accra. The pupils will be benefiting from water filters installed by Ghanapreneurs LLC and funded by Sheabutter Cottage helping hand programme.

The water filter looks simple but it is an effective way of providing clean water to these primary school children – it’s the company’s way of helping these children remain in school to continue with their and not go into child labour. Sheabutter Cottage will also be donating books to the school.

How can you help?

Shea Butter cottage are collecting story books for the 173 children (8-12yrs) of the Asikasu Primary school.

Kindly send any books (English) by 20th September 2013 to:
Asikasu Project
Sheabutter Cottage
Unit 3 – Sonning Farm
Charvil Lane

If you don’t have books you still help out  Bits n Pieces Jewellery run by Rachy Sealy is collaborating with this project. They will and will be donating 20% of all sales made from their Africa inspired earring sets to this project. This will run from September to November. So not only will you be helping out and feeling good about that,  you will be looking good too!
