HAPPY PRIDE MONTH 🏳️🌈

Pride is about the representation of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer people (as well as everyone else under the rainbow).
Pride is about celebrating the LGBTQ+ community.
Pride is about recognising the impact LGBTQ+ people have had.
Pride is about love and acceptance.
Add a donation to your order
To celebrate Pride month, we donated 10% of all profits from every box to akt and will continue to raise money for this charity throughout the remainder of the year.
We are raising money towards a "Rainbow Starter Pack" which helps a young person move into independent living after their time with akt. You can also add a donation of any amount to your order, or donate directly to the charity via our Facebook page, to help us reach this goal.
We will also be sharing stories from some of our LGBTQ+ friends and family on our Social Media channels, so please make sure you're following us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!
