Lutfiyya, our wonderful Indigo ambassador, has compiled ‘Poetic Egalitarianism’ - a poetry anthology that showcases the inner workings of beautiful minds that, together, celebrate diversity and hold a fierce drive to make the world a better place for everyone. Lutfiyya is generously donating all proceeds from ‘Poetic Egalitarianism’ to Indigo which will help us continue to connect incredible volunteers with our amazing partners working on the ground.
“This is a book we hope you will cherish for a lifetime, for within its pages you will find a piece of each poet’s heart, hailing from all different walks of life to colourfully merge and dare to dream of an egalitarian world for us all. Together with you, our readers, we hope to contribute towards the betterment of society through our poetry, by donating the proceeds of all our ebook sales to charities that are close to our hearts.” - Lutfiyya Seedat
YOVNGER face masks were born from a passion to give people an element of comfort as the world
faces a new normal in light of the Covid_19 pandemic.
Face masks have become a key addition to our daily life, as many of us don’t leave the house without one. Whilst most of us have awkwardly modelled the clinical looking face masks since the pandemic broke out, YOVNGER’s mission has been to create a safe and comfortable yet stylish face mask, complete with an affordable price tag. Handmade in Germany, the face masks are created from a stretchy fabric that delivers a seamless finish. The mask provides a soft touch on your face for the ultimate comfort and comes in a range of colours to match any outfit. Each face mask comes with a ‘PM 2.5’ filter for additional protection. Extra filters are also available to order. We are delighted they have chosen to support Indigo Volunteers and will be donating 10% of the cost of each mask to us! 🌟
You can find out more information about YOVNGER and buy their face masks on their website.

Brothers Salam, Jason and Ismail Noh were forced to leave their home in Iraq and fled to Greece to seek safety. During the year spent in a Greek refugee camp, the brothers continued to use their artwork as a way to express and communicate the challenges that refugees and Yazidi people like themselves face.
Since settling in France, the brothers now sell their incredible artwork and donate 20% of their profits to refugees and other displaced people. Their stunning pieces make for a very special gift or way to decorate your home with something meaningful.
