ABOUT OUR CHARITY FUND & PARTNERS
There are many phenomenal charities supporting people with cancer in the UK and beyond. Whilst we would love to be able to support all of them it just isn’t possible, so we have had to be selective.
In choosing our chosen charity partners, we applied the following criteria:-
- Small – the big well-known names in the cancer charity world get the lions-share of charity donations. Whilst we completely love and respect the work they do, we wanted to support small charities where our donation could make a big difference.
- UK-based but with national impact – whilst cancer is a global problem, as a UK-based company, we felt it was important that “support local” and focus our efforts on UK-based charities. This said we didn’t want to go “too” local so all of our charities have a nationwide impact.
- Cancer-agnostic – there are over 200 different types of cancer (mind-boggling!). It didn’t seem fair to select any charities that only focused on just one type, so all of our charity partners work with people with all sorts of different types of cancer.
- Support focused – Lions, Tigers & Bears is all about helping people to find their roar! Therefore it made sense to support charities whose primary goal is to provide support and help people to do the same.
How we help
30% of all profits on the site are donated to our charity partners (listed below). In addition, customers have the option of adding an additional donation to their order – 100% of these donations are split between our three partner charities.
