#makeadifference this Christmas November 08 2016, 0 Comments

As many of our customers know, we at TWS have a history of supporting charitable causes, both local and international and we were founded on the principle of being able to make a difference to the lives of people. If you are new to us and want to know about some of our past associations in pursuit of this aim, please have a look at the 'About Us' section of our webstore by clicking here.

For 2016, we are delighted to be able to support the Christmas appeal of Compassion Belfast who aim to provide gifts to children in the city who would otherwise have nothing to open on Christmas morning. All profits from the sale of our Christmas Scarves range will be donated to Compassion Belfast to purchase gifts for these children, so why not add a Christmas Scarf to you order and support this great cause.

To find out more about Compassion Belfast, please click here to visit their website and have a watch of their video below.

Help us to help others this Christmas. Help us to #makeadifference.

The Smiles Foundation Visit April 2015 April 15 2015, 0 Comments

We have just recently returned from a short trip to The Smiles Foundation in Romania. Our focus was the Tileagd craft group and the development of new skills for the ladies in the creation of new jewellery products to help form a sustainable business. In addition to this, we were advising in the development of an online presence to market and sell the products the group produces based on our own business experience.

The trip was a great success and we are excited for the potential going forward for the project! In particular, the impact it can have on the ladies in Tileagd, their families and the community as well as the development of an income stream to further support the great work of The Smiles Foundation in the area.

Although this was our first visit, we look forward to returning at some point in the future! We would highly recommend visiting Romania with The Smiles Foundation to see and take part in the amazing work that they do alongside the great staff team based there. You will be changed forever!

Kindness is Good For You! January 21 2015, 0 Comments

Here at The Wee Starfish, one of the things we love to do is to support worthy causes both locally and further afield. The reason we choose to do this is because we want to make a difference - you can read more about our ethos and our charitable support in the 'About Us' section of our website.

We believe that if we all do something, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem to us, that it can actually help change and shape our world round about us. And, based on the following video, it seems that it not only does good for others but good for us too!

So, what's stopping you from showing an act of kindness to someone today? Go for it, it's good for you!

This Christmas, The Wee Starfish is working alongside & supporting Women's Aid by providing gifts to all the ladies who find themselves in the refuges in North Belfast & South Belfast over the Christmas period.

We want to show the ladies some love by giving them gifts & to let them know that they're not forgotten. So thank you so very much for all your purchases from The Wee Starfish & for allowing us the privilege to make a difference to people this Christmas x
