KnockerLocker is partnering with the Pink Ribbon Foundation, (registered charity number 1080839) donating to the charity 5% of the price you pay for every bra sold from the KnockerLocker purse.
We are offering you the option to make your own donation, helping us to help Pink Ribbon, through your own donation.
Every 10 minutes a woman in the UK is diagnosed with breast cancer and it claims the lives of around 12 000 women each year- this is something none of us can ignore.
In addition we are joining forces with Smalls for All, a UK based charity (registered charity number SC 041689) collecting underwear for children and adults in need in Africa and UK.
Smalls for All collect underwear for women and children in need. In Africa, they help those living in orphanages, slums, IDP (internally displaced persons) camps and schools, as well as those in hospitals suffering from medical conditions like obstetric fistula.
The charity operates from the UK and supports people and charitable organisations working on projects in Africa who are able to transport and distribute the pants and bras collected. They also help charities that focus on alleviating poverty in the UK by providing them with underwear.
KnockerLocker asks that you consider adding in any of your preloved bras or donations of new pants with any items you are returning to us. We will then add them into our pile of pants to be sent onto Smalls for All.
We also donate any unsaleable returned sports bras to the charity, rather than into landfill as happens with many online retailers.
The Pink Ribbon Foundation is a grant making trust with a mission to fund projects and provide financial support to UK charities which relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, have been affected by breast cancer, or who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer and its early detection and treatment. There are a large number of such charities in the UK, each as deserving as the next. Many of the charities supported are the smaller ones, which operate on a shoestring.
The Pink Ribbon Foundation has very little infrastructure. It relies on the hard work given by Trustees, interested parties and its Patrons. This is done in order to maximise the amount which goes to the charities that benefit from the funds raised.
Almost two-thirds of women diagnosed with breast cancer today now survive their disease beyond 20 years and we want to help continue this incredible progress.
