Giving is the new black
There’s a general consensus that Black Friday marks the start of the Christmas period, a time of giving, joy & celebration, but also sadly for some a time of sadness, anxiety and suffering.
So this year, instead of participating in Black Friday, we’ve chosen to honour the season of giving and pay it forward with Give Back Friday. From Friday 29th November to Monday 2nd December, rather than offering a discount, we will instead donate 25% of your overall basket spend to the incredible charity, Breast Cancer Haven. Not only would you be helping others, but studies have shown that the act of giving boosts your well-being.
Breast Cancer Haven offers emotional, psychological and physical support to anyone affected by breast cancer. From counselling to yoga through to creative workshops, they provide a wide range of free emotional support services, as well as physical treatments to overcome nausea and exhaustion. It is a charity that is incredibly close to our hearts at OTO and we have seen the amazing support that they offer first hand
Generosity is contagious; so, if you’re thinking about treating yourself or someone close, OTO’s ‘Give Back Friday’ is a wonderful opportunity to help make a difference to someone’s life.
