Dock & Bay (D&B) are proud to have partnered with Smiley & To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA) to help tackle the constant challenges posed to people by their mental health. To Write Love On Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for those struggling with all forms of mental illness. Smiley Movement is a non-profit community interest company sponsored by the original SmileyⓇ brand. Their vision is to inspire positive change in society by creating a happier, more equal and sustainable world, where everyone works hand-in-hand to address urgent societal and environmental problems.
1 in 4 of us will be affected by a mental health issue in our lifetime. As this is a heartfelt cause to those at D&B, they’ve partnered with Smiley and To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA) as their Official Mental Health Charity Partner. They’re using this collaboration to work with these charities to help those find hope that are struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.
For every purchase from the Smiley collection, D&B will be donating 20% of sales directly to the TWLOHA charity. In addition to this, they will also be donating 5% of their overall profits to the TWLOHA charity.
