FURNITURE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE: 5% CHARITY DONATION
At Love Rustic we wanted to create brand that gives back to the world. As part of this this is the promise we made when starting the business; we promise we will donate 5% of your our total profits to charity. Your 5% will be donated to the SOS Childrens Villages.
SOS Children’s Villages is the world’s largest charity working with orphaned and abandoned children. We work towards every child growing up in a loving family home, whether it is with the child’s biological family or a new SOS family, so that they flourish and reach their full potential. Your charitable donation will go a long way to helping these families in need and we will keep you up to date via our newsletter on how the charity is helping to make the world a better place.
The particular village we sponsor is the SOS Children's Village Davao. SOS Children's Villages has been working in the Philippines since 1967 and in Davao on the island of Mindanao since 1981. The children in the Philippines continue to face dreadful conditions and our organisation provides families and children in need with support so that they can stay together.
SOS Children's Villages provides different kinds of support to the local population. The family strengthening programme provides assistance to families who are at risk of abandoning their children. SOS Children's Villages therefore works with local authorities to assist families and enable them to take good care of their children. We give nutritional, educational and health support. We provide counselling and guidance on parenting skills. Families stay in the programme until they become self-reliant. The SOS Social Centre also administers essential medical treatment and provides training to the local population. Furthermore we run a day-care centre; this is particularly valued by those parents who attend training or go to work - they know that their children are being cared for by professionals
Children who have lost parental care can find a loving home in one of the 14 SOS families where up to 150 children can be looked after. The children grow up with their sisters and brothers in a familial environment full of love, respect and security. The children from the SOS families attend lots of activities organised by the local community, and the activities we hold are also open to neighbouring families. The children in our care are offered special support according to their needs, be it with their school work or with therapy.
As the children grow up, they can join our SOS Youth Programmes. With the support of qualified professionals they are guided through this new stage of their lives, as they start vocational training courses, attend higher education and look for work. The young people are encouraged to develop perspectives for their future, learn to shoulder responsibility and increasingly make their own decisions.

USE OF DISCOUNT CODES
At Love Rustic we offer discount codes from time to time as we know this helps the promotion of our website. To remain profitable we may need to reduce the donation amount to SOS Childrens Village if a discount code is applied, this is to help maintain the operations of the business and ensuring it remains profitable.
