A couple of years ago, Stephanie Baylis-Crisp and Jenny McCormick were working with national charities to improve their product range. Research showed that there was a demand for high quality, well-designed products by the socially conscious consumer. Charities were investing heavily in online stores, products and basket apps to make it easier for consumers to buy. BOON Gives! came about as a result of this research and Wendy Schrier believed there was a need for a one-stop charity shop. The aim of BOON Gives! is to offer an alternative way to shop, raising awareness of a cause, it’s online store and thus funds.
Stephanie, a mum of one, is a designer and has designed for such charities as The National Museum of the Royal Navy at Portsmouth Harbour, The R.N.L.I and The Royal Navy Royal Marines Charity. Jen, works with her sister Stephanie helping charities improve their merchandise range but also manages the BOON Gives! website at the same time as running around after her two boys and black lab. Wendy ensures BOON Gives! functions, from the business side to the social media campaigns.
Together, the three of us try to make a difference, not only to the partnered charities and those they support, but equally the modern donor, today’s shopper. We hope you enjoy shopping at BOON Gives!
