Doing Black Friday Differently

Rebecca Udall

14 Nov 2019

















The brand ethos of Rebecca Udall and Black Friday don’t mix. It’s the opposite of slow living and buying less, better (the brand’s mantra).
 
Rebecca Udall will be offering an unusual Black Friday deal: a notable portion of orders placed 29 November - 2 December will go to charity to support the less fortunate this Christmas, associated with the brand's related categories of "bed" and "table".
 
20% of the purchase price of full price items will be split between the following charities:

LONDON BASKET BRIGADE: helping to feed disadvantaged families in London
CRISIS: supporting the homeless
CENTREPOINT: providing homeless young people with accommodation, health support and life skills to get them back into education, training and employment 

An average set of our bed linen (£300) will provide a £60 donation, paying for:


A Christmas lunch for one homeless person with CRISIS*
And a Christmas lunch for a disadvantaged family of four
And a room for a night for a homeless young person

*information taken from the respective charity’s website 
 



























































Quotes from Rebecca:
“I have worked in retail for 10 years this year. Black Friday didn't exist in the UK in 2009 and now it is one of the highest retail sales days in the retail calendar year - if not the most.
 
We’ve all seen the videos of shoppers aggressively elbowing one another to attain “the deal of the century”. I think it’s so sad. 

I believe more people are now realising that Black Friday deals are not always a steal. They are frequently another marketing tactic for retailers to clear slow or past season stock or to sell "Black Friday" purchased products - possibly lower quality to their usual range. I know this having worked in buying departments before starting my business.

Excessive consumption has disastrous effects on the environment which we are much more acutely aware. I hope our campaign makes people think a bit deeper about Black Friday in the mad haze of Christmas shopping. There are so many people that particularly struggle at this time of year. Are there disadvantaged people near you that could benefit from you donating the amount you would spend on a Black Friday "deal"? Are you buying something because you really need it or because it's a perceived deal?"
