We are very excited to announce that we are partnering with akt in honour of Pride Month! For the entire month of June, we will be donating 25% of sales made from our Rainbow Edit to the charity.
akt is a national LGBTQ+ youth homelessness charity which supports young people aged between 16 to 25 who are experiencing homelessness or living in a hostile environment. akt focuses on supporting these young individuals by providing a safe home, employment, education, or training.
“Coming out, or being outed as LGBTQ+, can sadly lead to young people being made homeless – even in 2022. Around 24% of young people experiencing homelessness in the UK are LGBTQ+, which is significantly disproportionate. Once homeless, LGBTQ+ young people are more likely to face violence and discrimination than young people who aren’t LGBTQ+. That’s why it’s so important that we have the support from brands like Estella Bartlett to help us keep fighting for and supporting young people in need,” a representative from akt said.
At EB, we would like to do the best that we can to support individuals experiencing injustice due to their identities. By partnering with akt, we hope to do just this, to celebrate and champion the LGBTQ+ community.
Our Rainbow Edit consists of 18 pieces ranging from earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and jewellery boxes. Our favourite, and one of our bestsellers, is the Full Rainbow Necklace, a beautiful rainbow shaped pendant with bright cz stones. Or perhaps opt for our Rainbow Applique Mini Jewellery Box to store all your EB treasures.
The bright and bold colours make these accessories the perfect new addition to your collection and what makes it better is that you are also helping tackle homelessness amongst the LGBTQ+ community.
Please join us in supporting this cause and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community not just throughout June but all year round!
