When we set up Bird & Blend back in 2013, we knew we wanted to create a company that gave back to the world & the communities that we are proud members of.
We are passionate about supporting causes that are close to our hearts and help the people & environment around us. There are so many different ways that we help different charities every day, including fundraising & awareness-raising activities, TEAm volunteering days & our ChariTEA of the Quarter Programme which so far has raised £51,648.50 and counting!
ChariTEA of the Quarter
Every three months we work with a different charity. They choose one of our tea blends & all profits of their chosen tea go straight to them.
While raising funds is a crucial part of supporting our chosen ChariTEAs, we love to really get to know them, use our social media presence to help them raise awareness for their causes & encourage our customers to get involved in fun campaigns supporting them.
Ways we've supported important causes
PosTEA campaigns matching volunteers with isolated individuals to write them personal note & bring them some cheer
Staff volunteering at tea mornings for the elderly
Charity fun runs
Beach litter picking
Care packages for NHS staff & key workers
ChariTEA Knit events in store to make crochet squares for the elderly
Virtual tea breaks to raise awareness for our ChariTEAs
This Quarter's ChariTEA
Our current ChariTEA is Therapy Dogs Nationwide. This is a a national charity where visiting volunteers take their own dogs into establishments such as hospitals, schools, and prisons to provide comfort, distraction, and stimulation.
You can read all about them and how we are supporting them here.
If you would like to help raise funds for them you can buy their chosen blend, Vicky's Sponge Cake.

All of our ChariTEAs are nominated by a TEAm member or a customer so we can make sure we are supporting causes that mean the most to our community. We don't have any strict selection criteria so if you have a campaign or charity that you would like to nominate please email us below with your reasons why and we will add them to our list to consider.
If you see a campaign or ChariTEA that we are working with that you think you can help out too then please drop us a line so we can see how you can get involved and help to spread the good work!
As well as our ChariTEA of the Quarter we can help out in many more ways with other charities including raffle prizes & tea samples, so if you would like to request support for a cause that is close to your heart then please email us with as much detail as possible about your request.
