Donating 200,000 pieces of HEATTECH to those in need
Every Giving Tuesday gives us the opportunity to help those who need it most. During this last month we have been providing the warmth of HEATTECH every Tuesday: for each piece of HEATTECH bought, we donated two: one to our global partner UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and another to a local NGO: Solidarité Grands Froids in Belgium, and De Rogenboog Groep in Netherlands. In UK we are working with our local partner Centrepoint, in France with SAMU Social de Paris, in Germany we are currently working with two NGOs: Berliner Stadtmission and Hanseatic Help. In Spain we work with ACNUR, in Italy with ARCA Onlus and E.M.M.A. Antiviolence Centres, in Denmark with Maendes Hjem and in Sweden with Stockholms Stadsmission. In total we have donated 200,000 pieces.
