I've had a few critical comments recently via social media for charging for my headwear when people are ill and need them... its very disheartening and really upsets me. I would love to give my products away for free! But sadly this is not possible if I want to continue my business and make my products available long term for people who need them and get comfort from them, whether for themselves or a loved one.
I genuinely take on the stress of manufacturing and running Bold Beanies because of the belief I have in my products... how unique, good and needed they are. The type of products you don't recognise the necessity or benefits until suddenly you or someone you love needs them and usually that comes in a tremendous amount of turmoil. I'm in a position to be able to make a small difference to peoples lives when they need it the most. To make a difficult situation just a bit more bearable. I will ALWAYS do my best to help with individual bespoke needs to customer requests or help in any way I can. I often go out of my way to help and this is always at my cost. I never pass on these on to customers... I genuinely just want to help.
I don't make much money from my business and I certainly don't lead a lavish lifestyle, but I am grateful I get the flexibility to combine my work with raising my two daughters.
If however, anyone does have any spare money or a knows a business which would like to sponsor some products to be given away to people for free who need them... do not hesitate to direct them my way :)
I support many charities each month, wether that be through direct sales of hats, offering prizes for monthly giveaways or donating headwear for chemo care packs, I do as much as I can to help as many organisations as I can.
Thank you Richard for the kind words. It makes it all worthwhile.
