KIND SISTERS

 

Grace Sisters is very proud to work with suppliers who operate ethically and practice social responsibility.  We also want to use our platform to support a charity that has special significance to us.

OUR GOALS IS TO RAISE £25,000

Grace Sisters is very proud to work with suppliers who practice social responsibility. To find something beautiful for yourself or your home which also makes a difference to the social and economic lives of the people who make it is a win-win. Do look out for the socially responsible stamp next to products that truly change lives to help you in your choices.

As well as supporting some of these amazing people who work to improve the lot of others we also wanted to do something closer to home and support a cause about which we are passionate and which has a personal significance. For every new subscriber to our newsletter we will donate £1 to our chosen charity until we reach our target of 25K. We are also developing an own label Grace Sisters product, the entire profit of which will go towards our charity.

Thank you for reading our story and supporting our vision. We will keep you posted on our progress.

Stay well and best wishes

 

DEBRA is the national charity supporting those directly affected by, and working with, Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) – a potentially fatal skin condition that causes constant pain due to unstoppable internal and external blistering. DEBRA provides lifelong care and support to the entire EB community. 

Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a group of genetic skin conditions that cause the skin to blister and tear at the slightest touch. Those born with EB have skin so fragile they are called ‘butterfly children’ – their skin is quite simply as fragile as the wing of a butterfly. Painful open wounds and sores form where this exceptionally fragile skin is damaged – in some cases, internal linings and organs are also affected. Complications as a result of secondary infection and extensive scarring are factors that people living with EB often have to face, including skin cancer. Tragically, certain types of EB can be fatal in infancy and others are severely life-limiting. More than 5,000 people are living with EB in the UK, and 500,000 worldwide.

Simone has been a trustee for this dynamic organisation for over 10 years, and fundraising for them since her eldest child was born with Dominant Dystrophic EB 18 years ago. Her mother and youngest child also have the condition so she is naturally passionate about raising money to provide life changing care and support to improve the quality of life for the EB community. We share their vision of a world where no one suffers from EB, and ultimately to find a cure by supporting the pioneering research that DEBRA undertakes. 

We will keep you posted on our progress. A huge thank you for your continued support.
