We are delighted to announce that we are partnering with The Albert Kennedy Trust, an amazing LGBTQ+ charity that dedicates itself to preventing homelessness with support available London, Newcastle, Manchester and online digital services. We were touched by how the team focuses on prevention and early action to provide safe homes, mentoring, training, advocacy and support to young people who are homeless, at risk of homelessness or live in a hostile environment.
We ourselves understand and can relate to the worry of coming out in fear of rejection and it’s not just us. We take time to get to know our customers and learn about their stories and when we discovered The Albert Kennedy Trust, we felt strongly in supporting them in raising awareness and giving our customers an opportunity to donate. We know many of our customers have their own experiences accepting who they are and taking the steps to share with people close to them.
We often receive special requests asking us to arrange delivery for specific days when no one else is home for a period of time or delivering to a safe place. We have even spoken to customers who tell us that they dispose of products shortly after purchasing as they fear people close to them would ask questions about them buying cosmetics, revealing secrets about their work, sexual orientation or gender. Even though many of us at Give Face Cosmetics have had similar worries and fears as we grew up, it’s easy to forget they existed and younger people are facing the same problems right now.
We hope our customers and visitors will see what The Albert Kennedy Trust do and join us in supporting and raising awareness so the charity can reach more people who need help to live their life.
As part of raising awareness, we have some fabulous plans to not only raise awareness but also give customers a chance to donate with the purchase of exclusive releases. The first of which is a special glitter release which is available right now! Give Face Cosmetics will be donating £1 for every pot sold.
We are excited to release more projects to raise awareness. Learn more about this fantastic charity at www.akt.org.uk
