Sophie Lancaster Foundation donation 2016

EDIT: The fundraiser had been extended to included all Etsy sales made during the month of August. Plus, if we reach £100, I’ll personally double it. 

We are very pleased to announce that for the second year running we will be donating 20% of all takings to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Any purchases made on the Morbitorium Etsy store during August 11th to August 24th will be totalled up and at the end of the month I will send 20% of that value to the foundation.

Why the 11th to the 24th?

This 13 day period marks the time that Sophie Lancaster was hospitalised in a coma after a vicious attack on her and her boyfriend whilst walking home one evening. Their only crime? Being part of an “alternative” culture.

After Sophie’s death, her family set up the Sophie Lancaster Foundation (Registered Charity Number 1129689) and rather than try and rehash the information held there I urge you to go and visit their website http://www.sophielancasterfoundation.com/

I’ll report back at the end of the month to let you all know how much we raised. Last years total was only £25 but since then, the Morbitorium has had more customers than ever before and I’m hoping that together we can smash last years donation. Fingers crossed.
