Good Causes - Help Musicians
We’re of the opinion that the arts are vital to people’s mental health and wellbeing, and we were very much aware that the pandemic was having a huge impact on musicians and performers. With concerts and festivals cancelled, people’s very livelihoods were at stake.
At that time, we felt incredibly lucky to be an online business. We didn’t have to close our doors, and we only needed to make minimal changes to the way we were operating. The same couldn’t be said for those in the entertainment industry. We have close friends and family members who are musicians and performers, so this one hit us hard. We wanted to find a way to help.
During November 2020 and May 2021, whilst concerts and events were banned in the UK, we gave 10% of the sales of our musicians minifigs to these two different organisations (5% each).
The Help Musicians COVID relief fund is fairly self-explanatory - the aim was to support musicians who were in financial hardship due to the global pandemic.
The second organisation (Sheffield Music Academy) is a local charity who aim to support exceptional and passionate young musicians in the local area. The total we donated to each was £ 1171.71GBP.
We loved being able to support these two good causes, whilst also seeing customers appreciate the musicians minifigs that we have designed and printed. If you’re interested in seeing our full range of musicians minifigs, you can find them here.
