What a thoroughly exciting week it's been. The highlight of it was the forming of a very special partnership with our most favourite animal charity - Wild Futures! What better way to show our appreciation to these tireless champions of monkey welfare than to donate funds from every sale of our products. That's 5p for each card and 50p for each print sold. This money will go towards caring for the 21 monkeys that are currently resident at the Wild Futures’ Monkey Sanctuary in Cornwall, as well as the charity’s ongoing work in environmental education, campaigning and supporting overseas conservation and rehabilitation projects
Wild Futures (reg. number 1102532) is an educational and environmental charity; promoting the welfare and conservation of primates, and conserving natural habitats through education and sustainable living. Says Wild Futures spokesperson, Liz Tyson:
“We are very proud to be associated with Hello Monkey; not just because we are sure that their fantastic designs will sell like hotcakes, thus generating support for or work, but because they have a genuine commitment to sustainable practice, which they ensure is reflected in all areas of their work. Our green credentials are extremely important to us and this is a wonderful opportunity to work with a like-minded team. We hope this will be the beginning of a long-lasting and mutually beneficial working relationship”.

Had a hard day? Perhaps it's time to whisk yourself away from the boss from hell or give up with the accounts for today and get cosy on the sofa with some Horlicks and a good book. But imagine if you'd adorned your seat with a beautiful cushion from Showpony, its fabric is hand printed with water-based inks, is organic and has been handmade in a fair-trade co-operative in India. Then neatly pleated at Emma Henderson's studio in Scotland. Need it? probably!
