Nordgreen Partners up with KidsOut for a More Joyful Christmas for All
As a tradition for the holiday season, here at Nordgreen we dedicate our work towards giving back to the less fortunate ones. For a large part of children around the world, Christmas is that long-awaited magical time of the year when they get to experience the warmth and love of their families, enjoying delicious meals and finding gifts underneath a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. Unfortunately that is not the case for many children out there, therefore we would like to make sure that the less privileged children in the UK will also get to experience the joy of Christmas.
The Greatest Gift Is the Gift of Giving
That is why this year we are partnering with the charity organisation KidsOut. Nordgreen and KidsOut guarantee to provide a gift and deliver it to a child in refuge, for every watch sold during the holiday period 2 December - 30 December. The presents will be given to children who have escaped domestic violence, being forced to flee their homes, leaving all possessions behind. By supporting their initiative, we ensure that these children will have good Christmas memories and won’t feel left out.
Last year KidsOut marked a record-breaking number of participants to their cause - over 23,000 toys being distributed to children in refuge. This year we are joining forces with them, hoping that our Nordgreen community can have an even larger impact over the joy of children in need throughout the holidays.
Helping out has never been easier - all you need to do is use the code KIDS at checkout when purchasing your desired watch. As a gesture of gratitude for participating in our joint mission and donating joy to a child in need, we would like to make a gift to YOU. Once you enter the coupon code, you will be able to select an extra watch strap for free, to match your newly purchased timepiece and remind you of the good work we have done together.
In addition to our holiday charity program, upon purchasing your Nordgreen timepiece, you can still take part in our ‘Giving Back Program,' by selecting one of our three missions made in partnership with global NGOs, thus choosing where a part of your purchase will be donated. One watch contributing to two charity causes for the greater good - what better way to add greater meaning to your gifts this year?
Creating Timepieces with a Cause with Our Giving Back Program
We realize that while it is simply not possible to not create any carbon footprint, we can, however, do our best to compensate that by putting effort into improving the quality of life where needed, by joining forces with local NGOs and supporting their missions of improving health and education, as well as tackling environmental challenges across the globe.
We have estimated that our efforts during 2020 have so far resulted in approximately 1.9 km2 preserved rainforest in Latin America, 23.000 months of education to children in India and 77.000 months of clean drinking water to families in the Central African Republic. We always aim to do better and that is why we will continue to work with Pratham UK, Cool Earth and Water for Good. This way we enable our community to pick the mission they resonate with the most and offer them the opportunity to contribute with their timepiece.
This is just the beginning of our journey.
