A few weeks ago we were approached by a small startup business called Rosy Rosie about helping out with some goodie bags they were doing for charity, we were really excited to help out, we had a quick read through the company’s website and their values and ideas on handmade and ethical business and we knew that we were a match made in heaven. The bags were a great success and we would like to let you know a bit more about what the company is about and how the goodie bags went down!
Rosy Rosie was set up by Rowena, she set up the company a few years ago to sell ‘Good Stuff with Good Stories’ for Babies, Children & their Grown-ups. She also makes scented soy candles. Her three main values are #handmade #ethical #sustainable. Her story is this “As a parent, multiple Godparent and friend to lots of people with (lots of) children, I was always on the lookout for fun, funky, good quality and cost effective presents, my criteria always being ‘would I like to receive this?!’”
How the bag idea came about? We will let Rowena tell you that:
“Recently I was asked by a client (and old friend) to put together a Goodie Bag for a charity event he was organising. Initially, he was after some Rosy Rosie handmade scented soy wax candles to include; but after a quick chat around what else the bag could contain, I took on the job of supplying the whole bag; what fun I had and how lucky I am that I know so many brilliant small businesses and entrepreneurial artisans from all my events!”
We then got a call from Rowena asking if we would like to supply some of our tea to go in to the goodie bags, which of course we said yes too! As you can see in the image below they looked great!
So all in all it was a match made in heaven from the start, two local London companies that both were started on core values of family, enthusiasm, expertise and ethical business and best of all it was all to raise money for charity! Below are the links to Rowenas website please have a look through and see if there is anything of interest to you!
If you have any possible charity ideas please let us know and see if we can be of help!
