At Sew Eco Fabrics, just like our shop, we believe our society should be focused on sustainable investment in our people and the planet.
That's why we're donating 5% of our yearly profits to various charities that make a difference.
See the list below for the chosen charities. At the end of the year, all donations will be calculated and fairly distributed between them. We'll publish on this page to show how much we've raised together.
Boys In Mind
Boys in Mind works with Children and Adults in a range of settings to Promote Awareness for Mental Health and Prevention of Suicide, particularly among Boys and Young Men.
Boys in Mind, look to empower boys and young men, to talk about their emotions and express their vulnerability in a safe and healthy manner. Help to create a society where everyone is accepted, regardless of their identity.

Magic Breakfast is a charity that delivers free breakfasts to school children facing hunger every day. A hungry child cannot concentrate, so could miss out on half a day of lessons every school day if not given anything nutritious to eat in the morning.
They work in schools working within high levels of disadvantage, helping head teachers target the children most in need without making those children stand out or feel embarrassed. Afterall, breakfast provision should always be stigma free and open to all.
In 2016, Founder Alex Stephany became friends with a homeless man who would sit outside his local train station. Alex would stop to chat with him and buy him coffee.
The man had been out of work longer than he could remember. As the months passed, Alex became determined to find ways to help the man leave homelessness for good. But he knew he couldn’t do that on his own.
That’s when Alex had the idea to crowdfund for homeless people.Through the power of people and technology, they transform how the world supports those left behind.
We want to be a place where everyone is welcome, is free to be themselves, and has an equal sense of belonging – whoever they are and wherever they’re from.
Creating a fair and equitable environment for girls to thrive is important to us because when they’re out in the world, things aren’t always like that. Girls are limited by gender stereotypes and face barriers to accessing things they need to be safe and happy. Our units, programme and activities are a space where girls can be themselves, and where they are free to belong, explore and have fun.
We know people face varying degrees and types of inequalities. That’s why we’re committed to creating an equitable space to give all girls and volunteers a sense of belonging. By doing this we'll be more open-minded, more creative, more curious and more confident. This is central to Girlguiding's vision.
At Stonewall, we stand for lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer, questioning and ace (LGBTQ+) people everywhere. We imagine a world where all LGBTQ+ people are free to be ourselves and can live our lives to the full.
Our campaigns drive positive change in public attitudes and public policy. We ensure LGBTQ+ people can thrive throughout our lives by building deep, sustained change programmes with the institutions that have the biggest impact on us, whether we’re learning, working, praying or playing sport. We make sure that the world hears and learns from LGBTQ+ communities, and our work is grounded in evidence and expertise. And we’re committed to empowering people to create change in their own communities.
Endometriosis is an inflammatory disease where tissue (same tissue that builds the lining inside the uterus) ends up growing outside the uterus as well.
Each month the tissue breaks down just the same, as the lining in the uterus, however the tissue inside the body doesn't have anywhere for the blood to go, causing deliberating pain for the sufferer. This disease affects 10% of women and people with uteruses, but is yet one of the most under researched, underfunded diseases and lacking in fair treatments, let alone a cure.
Not so fun fact: Endometriosis sits in the Top 20 most painful diseases.
March of every year is Endometriosis Action Month. Sew Yellow for Endo has become an increasingly popular campaign with the sewing community. Through the power of our sewing machines, let's sew in some action and raise money for this important cause.
Every March, we will focus on this charity in particular.
