You shop = we donate
For every order made between 21st and 22nd June, we’ll donate £20 to akt up to the value of £10,000.
Plus, we’re donating products
We’ll be providing 5 months’ worth of amenity kits to the Purple Door programme, an emergency safehouse in London that provides supported accommodation for up to six young people at a time. They also work with several temporary housing partners to secure accommodation for more, or if Purple Door is not suited to their needs.
The impact of your donations
A donation of £5,000 would represent a three-month stay at Purple Door, plus a Rainbow Starter Pack, which individuals are often offered when ready to leave the service. This average award of £1,000 is often used as a deposit and first-month’s rent, leaving them better placed to enter independent living on a firmer footing, with an aim of preventing recurrent bouts of homelessness - because no young person needs to choose between a safe home and being who they are.
