We believe that in someone's hour of need, your support can be the most powerful force for positive change. While this Winter we continue our commitment to delivering everyday essentials such as nappies, period products, toiletries, warm coats, and clothing, our #TwelveGiftOfKindness campaign introduces the gifts that go beyond the material. When you donate £10 you’re not just helping us deliver a box containing crucial items such as blankets, bedding, and essential clothing and footwear, you’re also delivering an invaluable gift for those who need it most, providing comfort, hope, and a renewed sense of purpose.
As the world witnesses the distressing events unfolding in the Middle East, Goods For Good has been collaborating with our partners to assess the immediate needs of those affected and to determine the most effective ways we can provide support during this hour of need.
Goods for Good is today announcing a new campaign to urge people to donate goods to our eBay shop, to help us raise funds and keep our vital work going. The initiative, Labels For Good, is being set up in response to an overwhelming need for our services and as a way to contribute to sustainability efforts in fashion.
Goods For Good staff and Board of Trustees are working in partnership with our charity partner HRIF to identify the needs of those affected by the catastrophic Türkiye-Syria earthquake.

Since the pandemic our online events have been vital for us to help raise the funds needed to sustain our charity and support individuals and families in need both in the UK and overseas.

Following feedback from our recent Volunteer Survey, we have worked hard to understand the experiences of our volunteers, both past and present. And with their help we have focused on how we can improve the recruitment, engagement and development of our volunteers.
In February we announced our partnership with The Big Heart Edit - a philanthropic organisation whose aim is two-fold; to raise money for charities that support vulnerable communities in the UK and abroad; and to encourage shopping with purpose.
On Sunday 21st March we hosted our second online fundraisers – our BIG NIGHT IN SPRING QUIZ EXTRAVAGANZA! and it was a fantastic evening.
I recently listened to a TEDTalk from Mary Portas where she talked about the emergence of the Kindness Economy “An economy built on awareness and sentience.” As someone who runs a charity that supports vulnerable individuals and families in need, I share Mary’s sentiment that kindness is a word rarely associated with business but one that is fundamental to the future success of business.
