Charities of the month: IDAS and The Children’s Charity

Hello everyone! This month, Fashion and Style Police is featuring two amazing charities. Whoop whoop!!

IDAS

The first is IDAS; a domestic violence charity in Yorkshire. IDAS stands for Independent Domestic Abuse Services. The charity was set up in 1977 and previously known as York Women’s Aid. IDAS is one of the first refuge providers in the UK and it all started in 2 bedroom flat donated by a local businessman in 1977. The charity has grown over the years and it now also covers other areas outside York. IDAS is the largest specialist charity in Yorkshire and the charity supports victims of domestic violence and sexual violence.

IDAS is doing an amazing job. No one should have to any form of violence, so it is great to see a charity supporting victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse. You can support the charity by giving here. Donations go a long way in helping those who need a place safe away from violence. You can also look at supporting IDAS by getting involved in voluntary work.

The Children’s Society

The second charity of the month is The Children’s Society. It is a national charity working hard to transform the lives of young victims of abuse, exploitation and neglect. The charity has been around for over 140 years and won’t stop until every child’s hope is alive. I think The Children’s Society is an amazing charity doing great things for the next generation. The vision is a society built for every child and their goal is:

By 2030 we will have overturned the damaging decline in children’s well-being, setting a path for long lasting growth.

Hey Essential Oil lovers! Here is a new product review for you. I have been using this Tisserand Orange Organic Pure Essential Oil for many months now. It is one of my regulars, I use it in many different ways. Sometimes I add a few drops in the bath, I also use it in my diffuser and also on my skin. Have you tried this Tisserand Orange Pure Essential Oil?

The Story of the Orange Essential Pure Organic Oil

The early Arabs were the first to write about the orange, which originated in China. The exact date of its arrival in Europe is not known. It was successfully introduced from Europe to the West Indies in the 15th century, and from there to the New World – the Americas – where it is now mainly grown as a commercial crop.

Sweet orange essential oil is widely used as a food flavouring in confectionary and also as a fragrance note in soaps and toiletry products.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS
  1. I love the fresh citrus fragrance. It smells amazing.
  2. This Essential Oil can be used in a variety of ways like I mentioned before.
  3. It blends in with other essential and carrier oils easily. The best oils to blend the Orange Essential Oil with are Frankincense, Citronella and Ginger.
  4. This Tisserand Orange Essential Oil is pure, 100% natural, vegan and organic.
  5. The orange fragrance stays fresh in the bottle for many months. I have had mine since November 2020 and it still smells like I have newly opened it.
  6. It currently retails at just £3.93 for a 9ml bottle. You can grab yours via the link below –

Charity of the Month: Action For Children

The charity of the month is Action For Children. This charity is one very close to my heart because it helps and supports vulnerable children and their families across the UK. Action For Children also work with decision makers to ensure government policies protect children, now and in the future.

Charity of the Month

Some of the many ways Action For Children support children from the early years are by:

  • Running over 100 Children’s Centres all over the UK.
  • Having classes for parents.
  • Working with local partners to offer health visitor services, speech therapy sessions and access to midwives.

I could go on and on listing all the amazing things Action For Children is doing in the UK. It is a great charity worth supporting if you are able to.

Supporting charities is what I like to do. Many may think I am able t do this because I have loads of money and that is not completely true. I enjoy giving those who are truly in need and I believe every little helps. This charity of the month blog series is a way for me to support charities online and encourage others to give if they can. Giving does not have to include money. You can give back by liking, commenting and sharing this post so more people get to read it. Also, you can support Action For Children through volunteering, raising money by running a marathon, organising a tea party, or challenging yourself in other ways and getting your family and friends to support you in raising money for a good cause.
