    Here’s how these stylish stores are helping…

    Kurt Geiger

    All UK store managers are working with their Local NHS Hospitals to give £100 gift cards to 55 NHS workers in the critical care departments of their local hospitals.

    As all store have been closed, over 2,000 Kurt Geiger store workers were asked to utilise their time whilst they are paid and not working to become part of their local communities, volunteering scheme for employees with Age UK underway and active across the country. NHS workers will also receive a 50% discount for a year in all Kurt Geiger stores once they re-open.

    Supermodel Jourdan Dunn commented on the move saying, “Now is a time for us all to play a part in our communities and Kurt Geiger’s initiative to encourage all of their workforce to support their communities and work with the elderly is an example I hope we will all follow. Given the shortness of blood the NHS already has, it’s more necessary than ever for us to come forward and donate blood – especially those with rare blood groups.” Bravo!

    Mango

    MANGO made a statement that they will donate two million masks in the coming days. The Spanish fashion firm looks to collaborate the fight against COVID-19 pandemic and alleviate the serious social, economic, and public health consequences it is causing.

    Mango will be in charge of distributing the two million masks in hospitals across Spain, many of which are in shortage of essential medical supplies to carry out their heroic work. The distribution will be made following the instrutions of the Ministry of Health.

    Through their statement, Mango wanted to acknowledge and thank, on behalf of its more than 15,000 employees, the extraordinary effort being made by all the people who are part of the health teams in Spain that are incessantly fighting COVID-19.

    To help support French caregivers and hospitals during the COVID-19 crisis, Mayhoola, the parent company of Balmain, Valentino and Pal Zileri, announcesa donation of one millioneuros to the respected French charity La Fondation Hôpitaux de Paris -Hôpitaux de France (FHP-HF). Today, France finds itself in a critical situation. The COVID-19 virus has spread quickly, despite increasingly restrictive quarantine measures enacted by the government. As the country approaches the peak of the pandemic, hospitals and caretakers have been stretched to the limit and needed medical supplies are dwindling. Founded in 1989, and under the leadership of Brigitte Macron since June 2019, the FHP-HF has long relied on the public’s generosity to fund over 15,400 projects in French hospitals. The FHP-HF will target the Mayhoola donation to aid hospital, the Montfermeil and Delafontaine hospitals,bothlocated in the French department of Seine-Saint Denis, north of Paris. As of today, Seine-Saint Denis—one of France’s most densely populated areas—is one of the French departments that have been hardest hit by COVID-19. Although the crisis has not yet reached its peak in Seine-Saint Denis, the region’s hospitals, unfortunately, are already overwhelmed, with both the number of patients and deaths rising at worrying rates. The medical staff urgently needs more material and support, in order to be able to face the days ahead. Mayhoola’s one-million-euro donation will be earmarked by the FHP-HF to support two key necessities of the Montfermeil and Delafontaine hospitals: •Each of the hospitalswill receive 400K€ to procure desperately needed equipment, including respirators, blood collection kits, syringe drivers, masks and catheters. •Each of the hospitals will receive 100K€ to support the health and well-being of medical staff—allowing the front-line heroes a chance to recover, rest and eat correctly between and during shifts, as they continue the fight in the coming weeks.
