In the spirit of Christmas, AUTHOR is giving back to our community this year with our Christmas giving campaign, #abaubleforchristmas.
Each beautiful, coloured glass bauble that we sell is handblown by Elin, one of our makers who is a very talented glassblower working from her studio in Stirling. Our mission at AUTHOR is to champion British craftsmanship and these gorgeous baubles are a stunning example of the exquisite pieces that are handmade by talented artisans and makers across the country.
These baubles are a unique and beautiful gift, giving your loved ones or yourself joy for many Christmases to come whilst also supporting such a worthy cause and helping a young person in need.
From the 1st of December, all the proceeds of our bauble sales this Christmas will be donated to Centrepoint, a charity that aims to end youth homelessness in Britain by providing young homeless people with accommodation, health support and life skills to get them back into education, training and employment.
We admire the work that Centrepoint does for young homeless people and are happy to support a charity that not only aims to help young homeless people with the problems they face in the short term such as accommodation and health support, but also supports them by giving them the life skills they need to live independently as well as work experience, guidance sessions and traineeships to help them get into employment and secure their future in the long term.
We here at AUTHOR believe everyone should have a home at Christmas and no one should be sleeping on the streets, especially in the harsh and cold winter weather.
Bauble colour will depend on stock availability at the time of ordering. They are all stunning but if you do have a colour preference then please get in touch. Please share images and videos of your Christmas giving bauble once they have winged their way to you using #abaubleforchristmas on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Thank you for helping us support young people in need.
If you have any queries on our Christmas Gift Shop or would like to know more about the charity we are supporting, then please do not hesitate to call us on 01674 820746 or email us on our contact form. The AUTHOR team would be delighted to help.
