Charities & causes
why we do what we do...
YOUNG+IDLE is a non-profit organisation dedicated to generating charitable donations through the sales of high-quality, unisex apparel and art exhibitions.
donations from clothing sales
Every three months our clothing line will be dedicated to a rotating Associate Charity (unless stated otherwise*) which we'll donate 25% of each purchase to.
Between December 2017 and February 2018, we're proud to donate profits from our clothing sales to Hackney Winter Night Shelter:
"Hackney Winter Night Shelter provides a hot meal and a warm bed for homeless guests who would otherwise be out on the streets during the coldest winter months."
Shop the line to help us continue to support their amazing work.
donations from Art exhibitions
Every 2 months our project Show of Hands holds a themed exhibition (for example on youth homelessness or plastic pollution) where 10 artists explore a named issue and attendees discuss the topic and work before voting for their favourite.
All profits from each show are donated to a relevant charity, local to us here in Hackney, London.
Head to the Show of Hands website to learn more about the project and our donations.
*Every now and then we'll release a limited edition run in aid of a specific cause, separate to our Associate Charity donations. See the YOUNG WORLD shirt in aid of BEHT for International Youth Day.
