Here at YOLO we believe that giving back is a much as gift for the giver as it is for the receiver. As Anne Frank once said "no one has ever become poor by giving". Each year we try to do a bit more than the year before and focus our energy on helping support the most relevant causes. Here are a few of things we have done:

Richmond's Local Big Issue Seller

Unfortunately she was subject to an incident resulting in a dog relieving itself on her coat, soaking it right through. Still, Argentina did not complain. Since setting up this fundraiser we've raised over £2,000.

Save The Children
In 2020 we raised thousands of pounds for Save the Children, helping them to support children and families that have been impacted by the global coronavirus pandemic. Learn more >> 
In 2019 we supported Movember, a leading charity changing the face of men’s health on a global scale,
focusing on mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. We donated a percentage of our sales for Scayl to the cause. 
Vision Aid Overseas
When we launched My Glasses Club we made a promise to donate a pair of glasses to Vision Aid Overseas, with every pair we sold, with our Buy One Give One Promise. We donated hundreds of pairs of glasses to children and families in need of eyecare. 
Malawi School
We supported a local charity called Reaper Ministries and helped towards the funding needed to build a school in Malawi, Africa. Children are given an education, food and even access to medication. We got to visit the school and meet the children and teachers.
Free Hugs
We encourage our team to support the local community. Whether that is the local Big Issue seller, supporting local charities and churches and we have even been known to go out and offer people free hugs.
