Why Prince's Trust

I first came across Prince’s Trust back in 2014, through Junior Chamber International, a non-for-profit networking organisation for young professionals to develop their skills and to contribute back to their local communities.
Once I got to know what Prince’s Trust is about, it’s hard for me to just walk away: Prince’s Trust provide disadvantaged young people the practical and financial support they need to stabilise their lives, by helping them develop key skills while boosting their confidence and motivation so they can continue to dream big.
In Chinese there is a saying ‘授人以鱼不如授人以渔’, meaning giving people in need fishes, is not as good as teaching them how to fish. A skill comes more powerful than the fruit itself. I then joined Prince’s Trust Million Makers project to raise funds for the Charity and was honoured to be featured as September Inspirer in Million Makers' newsletter. Over 2014, our project team ‘JCI Dare to Dream’ raised over £3,000 for those young children in need. Since then, I’ve personally donated over £200 to Prince’s Trust.
At Wellvivid, we are also grateful for all the opportunities and experiences we were born to have and appreciate that there are many people out there who are less fortunate than we are. We believe ‘our children is our future’. We believe everyone has got great potential within, once polished and fulfilled, can bring illuminated sparks into the world. We believe in contributing back to the society and we will be delighted to know we added a little extra to help transform young people’s lives.
We are going to donate £0.05p for every product sold. Our aim is to help support at least 10 young people in need in 2018.
