At times like these, its good to sit back and reflect. Reflect on all the positive aspects of your life, everything you're grateful for and take some time to really nurture your physical and mental wellbeing. At A&M, we've taken some time to reflect and we want to do anything we can to support our amazing community and give back where we can.
A&M Giving Back
We are so grateful to have the NHS in this country and we want to do a little something to show our appreciation. As well as having a special NHS and teacher discount for workers to use to treat themselves, we have also partnered with Medical Supply Drive UK to set us up with front line NHS staff who don’t have correct PPE. We donated over 3,000 gloves, 1,000 face masks and many other Personal Protective Equipment. We had this in our piercing studios initially for hygiene measures and to protect our customers and staff.
We have been paired with Look Ahead, specialists in delivering mental health, learning disabilities, homelessness and young people services. Our donation will help keep there carers safe and ensure they can continue to do their vital work in the community during this difficult time.
Sending love from our HO team💖
Our founder Connie Nam has decided to run a complimentary mentorship program for small businesses that have been affected by COVID-19. This will initially be a 3-month program but could be extended subject to the environment. Connie will initially select 3 people who she thinks may be able to benefit the most, but is open to extending it to more people after 3 months. See here for more details.
A note from Connie "I’ve been so overwhelmed by all the kindness from my team, customers as well as external partners we work with during this time of uncertainty. I wanted to make sure I’m giving back that kindness as well, which is why I’m launching a complimentary mentorship program for founders that I think may benefit from my experiences the most, especially during this crisis."
As we are all trying not to leave the house unless necessary, we've decided to set up a few virtual events over the coming weeks, that you can tune into through Instagram live as a special treat at the end of your day. This will hopefully aid in some new skills, nurse your mental wellbeing or just bring much welcome good vibes.
This is not only to support our community but also to help small businesses and freelancers in this tough time. There will be a link in each brands bio to donate towards them and help ongoing events. No amount is too little. ✨
