We’ve been working on something pretty special! Underneath our #hatesucks umbrella, we’ve collaborated with the amazing and inspiring team at the Diana Award to work with them on supporting their anti-bullying campaign.
What is the Diana Award?
Understanding that young people have the power to change the world, the Diana Award is all about rewarding young individuals who do amazing things within their communities. A legacy being carried on from the incredible Princess Diana herself, there are many layers to the Diana Award. From their anti-bullying campaigns to their mentoring and volunteering schemes, not forgetting the actual Diana Memorial Award itself. There are many ways they work on doing good things with the younger generation of today to make the world a better place.
‘We're legacy to Princess Diana's belief that young people have power to change world. We foster/develop/inspire positive change in young people’
What are we doing?
We’ve worked with the Diana Award in creating an edit of 5 Skinnydip products, where we’ll be donating £1 per item sold to the Diana Award’s back to school campaign.
This campaign is all about training young people to become peer ambassadors to tackle bullying in schools, working on making students feel more comfortable and also being able to detect potential students who may be suffering, encouraging them to seek help or advice.
We also held a live panel event where we spoke to some inspiring individuals to talk about the often-cruel world of social media, online bullying and touched on helpful tips and tools that individuals suffering can use to combat this. We want to help make sure that young people never feel alone again, and that’s why our work with the Diana Award is so important!
