Everyone knows Christmas is a time for giving. But while you're giving to your loved ones this year, we'd like to offer you the opportunity to also help us give back to our local community that has supported and sustained us since the beginning.
We're based in Cambridge, UK, a city famous for its university and scientists, its surrounding pastoral landscapes and the narrow, medieval streets of its historic town centre. But Cambridge is also home to a growing number of rough sleepers. In fact, numbers doubled last year in Cambridge, and increased across the whole of England.
So this year we're donating a portion of our December online sales (plus a healthy supply of chocolate, of course) to Jimmy's, a charitable organisation that has been providing help for the homeless in Cambridge for over 20 years. Jimmy's works with the local community, volunteers and partner agencies to deliver 24/7 emergency accommodation and supported housing for those who would otherwise be homeless or vulnerably housed.
In addition to a bedroom and meals, Jimmy's provides:
So for every Ombar you purchase in our online shop during the month of December, we'll give 25p to Jimmy's to help support and empower the homeless population in our home city. And of course we'll be donating a healthy stock of chocolate! Shop now to help us give back while giving to your loved ones.
