During this uncertain time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have heard of many companies and services close temporarily, and in some cases, even permanently.
But Canadian ready-to-wear designer Ellie Mae is stepping up to the plate to ensure that this doesn’t happen to a much-needed service.
As of April 2, 2020, the designer has raised over $30,000 for Kids Help Phone after seeing the effects COVID-19 has taken on youth and their mental well-being.
Katherine Hay, President and CEO of Kids Help Phone, says, “Ellie Mae’s donation will allow Kids Help Phone to continue to be there for the young people of Canada 24/7.”
Every item purchased in Ellie Mae’s limited-edition accessories collection sees 100% of the profits go back to Kids Help Phone—talk about empowering.
Ellie Mae Water, Creative Director and Founder of Ellie Mae Studios expresses her gratitude, “We’re excited about the success and response from this year’s campaign. Supporting organizations like Kids Help Phone means they’re able to do more good work and help more people.”
This is the second time Ellie Mae and Kids Help Phone have collaborated together In Aiding to continue The over-the-phone counselling service for youth, which is available 24/7 in Canada.
Ellie Mae is a Canadian brand selling women’s clothing and accessories. Each piece is made in small quantities but, of course, with high-quality and durable fabrics.
The conversation-starting limited-edition collection includes scrunchies, ties, and pocket squares with the classic Liberty of London floral fabric.
With there being bounded quantities available for these impactful purchases, be sure to check out the website and make a difference today.
