Mustard X Beam
Mustard is really proud to be partnering with Beam.
We donate £5 from every order to Beam.
Each month we will have Beam day! On the last Wednesday of the month we'll send everyone who has ordered within the month an email that tells them about the donation and offers them the opportunity to choose the person whose campaign they'd like the donation to go towards. (If the customer doesn't pick a person the money will be shared evenly so it won't be wasted!)
We then make the payment to Beam and the people they support get a step closer to their goals.
What is Beam?
Beam is a world first online platform that crowdfunds for training courses and professional qualifications for homeless people and then supports them into stable careers.
As a social impact business, Beam uses crowdfunding technology to make it safe and easy for anyone to help homeless people by connecting the public with the men and women on its platform. Beam advocates transparency, with every campaign showing an exact budget on the website and sharing the progress each individual is making towards their employment goals.
Will it cost me more?
Will you share my email?
Will you donate for all orders?
Where does the money go?
The £5 will be donated to Beam and you have the choice of selecting a single persons campaign or having it spread evenly across all the campaigns. Every member on the platform has a unique story and unique goals they need help achieving. We hope and recommend you'll take the time to read their stories, look at the budget breakdown of what the money will be used for and to follow their journey. It's a beautiful process and the backing they receive is just as much about the human connection as it is the money.
