Everythingbranded.co.uk donates to branded bags to SmileForJoel

EverythingBranded.co.uk is delighted to announce it has donated promotional merchandise to SmileForJoel. The charity is set up us a fund-raising group to support and help families who are victims of traumatic bereavement through homicide.

SmileForJoel was created after the tragic Tunisian terror attacks in 2015. The charity’s founder, Suzy, lost three family members in the attacks. Her son Joel, her father Pat and her brother Ade. Through the heartache of losing loved ones Suzy didn’t want their names to ever be forgotten.

She wanted to make a difference in their name for others who experienced losing loved ones in such a tragic way. SmileForJoel was set up as a fund-raising charity to help broken families who are victims of homicide.

The group gives the funds direct to families for them to get the support they desperately need. The money is used in a number of ways, from taking time out for family breaks to special counselling.

Suzy said: “Not every family has the love and support we have had from our family and friends. If the funds we raise can make even the smallest difference in these times then it’s worth it.

“The Smileforjoel wristbands are very special to us, Joel my eldest son had the world at his feet and he had lots of dreams to travel around the world. He had a big bucket list of destinations he wanted to visit.

“His dreams were cruelty robbed, so we ask people in Joel’s memory to travel for him, to take the bands around the world and send us a photograph of the wristbands in front of iconic attractions.

“We are over whelmed by the response, some of the pictures we are getting back are amazing, Australia, Canada, America even the North Pole. All our pictures are shared on our social media.”

Paul Rowlett, Managing Director of EverythingBranded.co.uk, said: “Working in the promotional product industry we encounter some of the worthiest causes and some of the most heart-breaking stories. SmileForJoel has taken a traumatic bereavement and are using it to support other families who may be experiencing a similar loss.

“We are proud to be donating a few promotional products to their cause.”
