Supporting others is something we are truly passionate about at Whistlefish. It's why greetings cards are at our core; we believe small acts of kindness can make all the difference to someones day.
Our founder Lyn has a special place in her heart for heavy horses, a breed that are in danger of extinction in the next 10 years without more awareness about their unique capabilities. From dogs to hedgehogs and many furry friends in-between, the donations that we make using the money that you spend at Whistlefish, goes to help creatures most in need.
There are also various hospices and aid charities that we work with to support those in critical need of care and we are especially passionate about giving back to The Prince's Trust - an organisation that helped us get off the ground with financial and business support 26 years ago.
We worked with several charities this past year to raise funds. We donated over 12,000 cards to Cornwall Wildlife Trust raising £4,493 to protect habitats in Cornwall. £3000 was raised for The Prince's Trust to help young, vulnerable people to have a better start in their careers. £9181 was raised for the Clydesdale Horse Society to help raise awareness of this breed which is in danger of going extinct. Finally, we donated cards to local charity Prickles and Paws who raised £240 to help rehabilitate hedgehogs.
Since 2009 we’ve donated £97,964 to our local and national charity partners, with continuing agreements in place for coming years. We look forward to making a difference to these fantastic charities in the future.
