The Hope Organic Sweatshirt will donate money to the children’s charity
Sustainably conscious online maternity wear brand Isabella Olive, has partnered with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity) to launch the ‘Hope’ Organic Sweatshirt and honour its commitment to give back.
The UK-based brand has produced the knitted rainbow design, aptly named ‘Hope’, where 50 per cent of net proceeds from the sales will be donated to GOSH Charity, which supports seriously ill children from across the UK.
Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) is one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals with the broadest range of dedicated, children’s healthcare specialists under one roof in the UK. The hospital’s pioneering research and treatment gives hope to children from across the UK with the rarest, most complex and often life-threatening conditions.
“At Isabella Oliver we are always looking for ways to do our bit and give back to the community, from donating 10 per cent of our profits each year to charities, to our enduring commitment to sustainability. So, it’s fantastic to support such an iconic charity like GOSH Charity, honouring the fantastic work the staff at the hospital do in treating seriously ill children,” Isabella Oliver Creative Director and Founder Baukjen de Swaan Arons.
GOSH Charity needs to raise money to support the hospital to give seriously ill children, the best chance for life. The charity funds research into pioneering new treatments for children, provides the most up to date medical equipment, funds support services for children and their families and supports the essential rebuilding and refurbishment of the hospital. Money raised through the sales of the Hope sweatshirt will help support the hospital’s most urgent needs.
Liz Tait, Director of Fundraising at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity said: “We’re so grateful to Isabella Oliver for choosing to partner with GOSH Charity. The money raised through the sales of the beautiful Hope sweatshirt will help us to support seriously ill children from across the UK who are cared for by the dedicated staff at Great Ormond Street Hospital. The generosity from companies like Isabella Oliver means so much during a really challenging period, with many of our fundraising events and activities cancelled due to the pandemic. The rainbow has been a symbol of hope for our fantastic NHS throughout the last few months of this crisis, and we’re honoured that this special product is dedicated to staff at GOSH, and the hope they provide to children with rare and complex conditions. Thank you.”
