Chippenham Business Awards Winners.
As you are all aware Pillow May recently joined forces with an incredible charity Free to Shine for our 10th Birthday and we have decided to continue supporting this charity in the future.
Jessica is also currently part of an amazing venture that provides training and education in the accountancy profession to the young women and girls of Cambodia, there is already an incredible 200 young women and girls enrolled in this life changing scheme.
However, Pillow May has always been dedicated to giving back and donates 1% of our turnover to charities of all kinds both locally and internationally.
It is this continued commitment and full integration of “giving back” that saw Pillow May not only make it as finalists but go on to WIN the award for Charitable Business of the Year at the Chippenham Business Awards 2020.
We would like to take this opportunity to again thank all of you for your continued support of Pillow May as without your faith and continued business this could not have been possible.
Our 10th Birthday fundraising in support of ‘Free to Shine’
We all felt inspired to support Free To Shine, after hearing the founder, Nicky Mih at a B1G1 conference.
Free To Shine are a well-respected charity who are working hard in Cambodia to keep girls safe from sex trafficking, not from handouts but by prevention through empowerment; education; nutrition; and community support.
Here’s how Nicky describes the charity’s purpose, “..we make it possible for children to access their local, public school. We don’t rescue or save children from sex trafficking; we work to prevent them from being trafficked in the first place.”
To mark our 10th birthday we were working towards an ambitious fundraising target…
Our target was to keep one girl safe, in school, for the duration of her education and we far exceeded it!
Trip to Cambodia, June 2019
Jessica is never one to shy away from a grand plan, so as part of our fundraising journey 6 of the Pillow May girls travelled to Cambodia on a self-funded study tour. Where we met the amazing Free To Shine staff and saw the effects of our fundraising first hand. See our Pillow May facebook for the amazing photos and read all about our trip here Cambodian Blog
