Children’s drawings of rainbows tacked into front windows have become a worldwide symbol of hope and appreciation for frontline carers and key workers during the Coronavirus pandemic. Little wonder then that this magical arch has inspired several companies to create rainbow emblazoned t-shirts, bags and even shoes, with proceeds going to the NHS. There’s never been a better time to paint the whole world with a rainbow…
Joules have created an entire rainbow edit from their existing collection and are donating all profits to the NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal. As they put it so succinctly, “We know that clothes aren’t the most important thing in the world right now, but hopefully we can give back to those who need a little extra support and help to put a smile on everyone’s faces.” Bravo Joules! We especially love this children’s rainbow bag.
