At Young Goat we look beyond merely serving a commercial purpose and want to use our platform to raise money for local and global charities who provide important aid for those in need. As well as formally partnering with organisations, we have raised money through charity auctions, productions and promotional campaigns which has been incredibly rewarding. These opportunities have allowed us to work with the following charities:Second Step
About Second Step: Second Step is a leading mental health charity that has been putting mental health first for people in Bristol and the South West for over 30 years. They believe that with the right support, everyone can take control of their life and make their future their own.
Our Involvement: The money raised by Young Goat will help support their work with vulnerable people in Bristol and across the South West. It will also go towards Sylvia's Fund, a grant-giving fund created to help our clients with their recovery. Second Step clients can apply for small grants of up to £50. In the past we've bought clients walking boots, gym membership, and a train ticket so a father could see his daughter get married.
"Young Goat are super hard-working and talented young folks with a new clothing brand aiming to promote self-esteem and confidence. That's absolutely something we can get behind here at OTR, and we really appreciate Young Goat supporting and advocating for our work."
About Black Minds Matter: BMM is a charity that connects Black individuals and families with free professional mental health services across the UK. They endeavour to make mental health topics relevant and accessible for all Black people in the UK.
Our Involvement: We ran an auction for some of our products in June 2020 and you helped us raise £478. Their fund will be used in its entirety to cover the cost of the services that Black individuals in need require the most. BMM considers it a state of emergency for the wellbeing of the Black community and we are committed to supporting their efforts.
"We would like to thank Young Goat for choosing to donate a proportion of their sales to BMMUK, without their commitment and dedication to the Black community through fundraising, this would not be possible. On behalf of the BMMUK team, volunteers, therapists and individuals, thank you so much for your support"
