In light of recent events, positive news is becoming a frequent occurrence.
We’ve witnessed the likes of food chains and delivery companies coming together to help feed our nation, rainbows in almost every window and a national weekly applause for the NHS. Because of this, to help spread to message of positivity, we thought we’d shed some light on the brands that are doing their bit during the pandemic.
From posting home workouts to hosting the ‘Living Room Cup’, Nike has played an essential role to ensure athletes around the world can still achieve their goals from the comfort of their own home. That said, in a recent statement titled ‘Covid-19 Community Response’, Nike’s leaders, Nike and the Nike Foundation have donated a total of $17million to Covid response efforts across the world!

Not only are Jayley donating 50% of all online purchases to the National Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal, Jayley are also donating over 40,000 items of PPE to health care organisations across Staffordshire!

While The Body Shop have been publishing posts of positivity, the team in the UK have been dropping off care packages to local hospitals for NHS workers – but that’s not all. The team at The Body Shop have also donated 25,000 soaps and Hemp Hand Protectors to NHS nurses, doctors, support staff and volunteers at the temporary hospital at London’s ExCel centre; plus a further 75,000 to hospitals that are being set up in Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow!
Amazing or what?!
During recent events, despite the closure of Gift Company’s stores, the company has set up a Just Giving page to raise money and give something back to the NHS. If the company can reach £1,000 in donations, then their Managing Director will dye his hair bright pink!
Good news is, they’ve raised over £1,000 – I guess that means their staff will see their boss “embarrassed with flamingo coloured hair for a bit”. Go team!

Following the closure of their cafes, Costa Coffee gave away over 25,000 free coffees for NHS heroes to thank them all during this current crisis. The Costa team at Affinity also donated their goods for emergency food parcels just before closure.
