Let's take a look at a charity that is close to our hearts...
We donate all proceeds from the sale of our charity bags to support the amazing work of the Australian charity Forget Me Not.
This wonderful charity works through local organisations in Nepal, India and Uganda to reunite trafficked children with their families and provides support to help families become self-reliant as a means to keep families together.
More than 80% of children held in orphanages are NOT orphans.
Globally research shows that children are taken from their families, trafficked into orphanages and used to generate funds - this is a form of modern slavery. Together we can free children from institutions and get them home, in families, where they belong.
Forget Me Not exist to prevent children and young people around the world from being displaced through investing in innovative initiatives that keep children within their families and communities.
As of March 2023, Boom Shankar has donated $64,344.77 to support the work of Forget Me Not. This has helped reunite more than 700 children with their families.
All of these children are happy at school making friends and enjoying their childhoods connected to family, community and opportunity.
Thanks to Forget Me Not, thousands of children in India, Nepal and Uganda have had their love of learning ignited and they are thriving in local schools, immersed in culture and surrounded by love. The charity also have budding lawyers, social workers, teachers, artists, tailors, hoteliers and CEOs currently studying at tertiary level and ‘care leavers’ that are now employed as Change Agents strengthening understanding of orphanage trafficking in rural, remote and regional communities. Funds donated to Forget Me Not are allocated to specific projects and emergencies, most recently feeding families during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Another great thing about our
re-usable charity bags is that they
are made with fabrics offcuts that
would have otherwise been wasted.
Brighter futures for children.
