Fund Raising

We have taken a long term commitment to raising awareness about domestic abuse. We are at the very start of this journey and we encourage you to help us make a difference by visiting our care ribbon category in the shop. The products available in this category will be growing over the next couple of weeks and  15% of all sales will be going to White Ribbon UK to help them carry on with their amazing work of preventing violence against women.

We have a growing social media presence which we often use to cascade information regarding issues affecting the UK today. Please contact us if you would like to use our social media accounts to raise awareness of your charity/ cause.

White Ribbon UK is part of the global White Ribbon movement to end male violence against women.

Osie Scents fully supports their mission to  encourage all men to wear a White Ribbon, and make the Promise to never commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women. This is a serious declaration and requires thought and consideration before it is made. Anyone over the age of 14 can make this promise and although primarily aimed at males anyone can make it. 

More than 38,000 other people have made this promise and we want you to join them. So please press here and start making a difference.

Further information regarding the amazing work being carried out by White Ribbon can be found here.
