MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD THROUGH FASHION Who are Enhance Fashion Accessories?

All of the profits from the Justice Bags go towards funding social justice organisations. Within 5 days of the launch, 75 stores in every state of Australia were on board, donating space within their store for the Justice bags.

Established in 2003, Enhance Fashion Accessories supply a selection of beautiful fashion jewellery products to fashion boutiques, gift shops, fine jewellers and department stores throughout Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

‘The Social Space’ is a concept created by one of the Directors, Anita Riley. The aim of this concept is to ask retailers to donate space in their store to sell Justice Bags. Business owners can do their part to fix social injustice without sacrificing their own profits in a time of economic uncertainty.

Enhance Fashion Accessories are also keen believers and supporters of social justice, which has been a great connection for the establishment of Gifted Hands. Gifted Hands started in 2006 in Australia by Robyn Richards, using the discontinued stock of Enhance Accessories to fundraise money to financially support a number of charities throughout Australia and the world. Currently in the UK, Gifted Hands is known under the Enhance Fashion Accessories brand.

Gifted Hands are currently looking for even more businesses in the UK willing to adopt ‘The Social Space’ concept and donate a small space in their store. For the public, if there is not a retailer near you, these bags can also be bought directly from the Gifted Hands website. The website also contains a large selection of fashion accessories from which 100% of the profits go to charity.

Gifted Hands Since its inception, Gifted Hands has seen a huge impact from their financial support to various charities and organisations. One particular example saw Gifted Hands donate into a project which contributed to the rescue of 100 girls between the ages of 5 and 12 from human trafficking. The money raised for this project was achieved fully by volunteers! Gifted Hands also adopt cots for Kenyan orphans, financially assists a young man who supports 40 Kenyan street boys, financially contributes to a Cambodian aftercare facility for girls rescued from human trafficking, introduced a safe water tank to a Somalian village and have financially assisted a couple who have launched a clean oven project in Indian slums. Other organisations funded by Gifted Hands includes a pregnancy support centre called the Priceless Life Centre, organisations that campaign against the sexualisation of women and children and also a drug and rehabilitation centre for women in Australia. Justice Bags 2012 saw Gifted Hands launch their range of Justice Bags, a reusable and waterresistant eco-bag in a range of bright and colourful designs. The bags are perfect for everyday use, whether shopping, beach wear, school, college and work.

What The Future Holds In addition to funding a multitude of charities and organisations, Gifted Hands UK has its sight set on helping girls who are trafficked here in the UK. Their vision is to launch a retail store with a coffee shop in Edinburgh. All profits from this business will fund counselling for girls that have been trafficked. The profits will also be used to help pay for the rehabilitation of girls who are prostituting themselves to fund addictions. If you would like to donate into this project please contact sales@giftedhands.org.uk. Why not make a difference in the world?

Nothing To Lose But Pain What Are Sole-Mates? Every day, the average person takes 18,000 steps, sustaining thousands of pounds of pressure on the 26 bones in their feet. With shoes chosen for how they look rather than the support offered, little attention is paid to the flat inner sole that provides no support to the arch. The constant pressure on the feet and the lack of arch support can cause constant pain, discomfort and fatigue and over time, can cause serious disorders like arthritis. Sole-Mates are an innovative liquid orthotic insole that has been clinically proven to provide unrivalled support for those who are constantly working on their feet and paying the price. The insoles work by increasing circulation to the feet and lower legs through a unique massaging system. This massaging of the foot muscles increase circulation to the feet and legs, increasing the health of the foot. The protective insole can even be used in all types of boots and shoes, including high heels. How Do They Work? Unlike other insoles on the market, Sole-Mates contain a glycerine fluid instead of a gel or foam. Unlike gel or foam, liquid doesn’t flatten or wear out, instead it moulds to the shape of the individual foot, with the fluid pushed up under the arch to provide gentle and firm support. The fluid displaces across the entire foot and also moves back and forth, massaging the muscles in the process; just like walking on a water bed. Why choose Sole-Mates? Recent clinical trials in the US have found that with the aid of Sole-Mates, there is an average of 53% increased blood flow from the feet. Those working in hazardous conditions are often required to wear protective boots with metal plates and work on pressure mats. These safety preventatives can cause damage, with trips and falls over the mat and damage to the feet from walking on metal. Sole-Mates can help address both issues, with employers no longer requiring pressure mats to protect feet and a cushioning for the employee. The superior absorption given by the insoles reduces the wear and tear on a person’s feet, knees and hips and can help align the foot and ease the pain caused through Morton’s Neuroma. The insoles are even machine and hand washable and come with a 12 month unconditional warranty. “I’ve noticed a major difference. I’m experiencing far less pain and discomfort and am now walking a lot better.” “It is the first time in ages that I have been able to walk without wincing with pain. I wish I found them sooner.” “It’s fair to say these brilliant insoles have transformed my life and if you too suffer from painful feet, they could be the answer.”
