Get Involved

You can help too!

Whether you are an individual, shop, school or community group you can help us develop the project. Since launch we have had people coming into our stockists and donating buttons and others who are collecting them for us. As a result we are really keen to facilitate people’s generosity. By collecting or sending buttons, telling your family and friends about us or buying button hearts you can help provide a sustainable future for the project.

As an individual the best way to support us is either to drop buttons off at one of our stockists or contact us if you would like to send them direct.


If you are a shop interested in selling the Button Hearts along with the stock we can supply a collection box and all the relevant point of sale to explain to customers about the project and how they can support it. This aspect of selling the hearts has proved very popular because customers appreciate the opportunity to get involved.


Also during fair trade fortnight Matthew visited many schools in Cheshire and Shropshire talking about the importance of fair and ethically traded products. As a result we now have a number of schools who actively wish to support the project by collecting buttons and selling them at their school fairs whether summer or at Christmas time.

If you would like to support us get in touch.


Do you run any events or stalls at school, local shows or events. If so or you would like to give it a try why not get in touch. To see how it works have a look at the “Button Heart” page or “contact us” direct to find out more.
