We are excited to announce that our chosen charity for 2021 is Gingerbread and every first Thursday of the month will be Gingerbread Thursday, where we will donate £5 from the sale of every Mum Boss planner.
Who Are Gingerbread
Gingerbread are the leading national charity working with single parent families. Since 1918, they have been at the forefront of shaping policy and services that support single parents.
Today, there are two million single parent families in the country. Gingerbread champion their voices and keep their needs at the heart of everything they do.
What They Do
Gingerbread aim to improve single parents’ lives, through championing the voices and needs of single parent families and providing effective support services. Whatever success looks like to a single parent; a healthy family, a flexible job, stable finances or a chance to study – their mission is to work to make it happen. This is done through campaigning for change in government policies, providing advice and training to help single parents reach their goals and creating a community of like minded single parents who can provide support to each other.
As many of you are aware, we are single parents. We may not be single in the sense that both of us now have awesome partners, but we are single in the sense that we are no longer with the fathers of our children. And as many single parents know, going it alone can be extremely difficult. We are lucky that we both have a great support network of family and friends but we know that many parents out there do not have this. By giving a little bit back every month, we know that we will be helping to provide other single parents with the opportunities that we have had.
