For every postcard pack and print we sell, a £1 donation goes to Home-Start UK, one of the leading family support charities in the UK.
Home-Start UK's ethos is built around support and friendship, something Mother Feels feels strongly about, and we are in awe of the hard work they have done for families to improve confidence, deal with challenges, and build better lives for their families.
Founded by Margaret Harrison in 1973, Margaret believed that supporting a family was best done in their home where it can be shaped to the needs of the family. She realised that if parents get support and friendship from another parent, they will be better equipped to learn to cope with the many difficulties life can bring, and will be able to give their children the best possible start to their own lives.
This idea that started in Leicester, spread across the UK and is now a movement around the world. There are now 22 countries on five continents that have Home-Starts providing support for families.
The beliefs of parents supporting each other and helping one another are something that Mother Feels feels strongly about, so we are hoping we can help Home-Start UK as much as possible, sharing our feels through pattern and print to get mothers talking about emotions, sharing their stories of support, whilst also supporting a great charity.
