'Love Your Community' - Nine Crows X Pieta House Event

'Love Your Community' - Nine Crows X Pieta House Event

This Valentine's Day, Nine Crows decided that we need to think about love on a broader spectrum. The love we have for ourselves, our minds, our bodies, and our surrounding communities. Love is all around us, it comes in all shapes and sizes from many different people. We decided we wanted to celebrate the love that comes in all forms from everyone around us. We want to remind everyone of the importance of showing your love for your community and supporting each other.

This got us thinking about our community in general and of the struggles it faces, including mental health issues. The Nine Crows community has been rocked by several tragedies stemming from mental health issues over the years and we wanted to do something about it. We wanted to do something that would help us show our love to the community and to address the mental health problems it faces and to do something about it. We came up with the idea of our Love Your Community campaign, a campaign which will focus on raising awareness of mental health issues within our community and to start a conversation that badly needs to be had. 

To launch this campaign we decided to hold an in-store event in both our Dublin and Galway stores in aid of Pieta House on Valentine’s Day so that we could all hang out together and show our love for each other while raising some much needed funds for a cause that has deeply affected our community.  20% of all sales on the day went to Pieta House and there was donation buckets in store which everyone was extremely generous with.

It was such a fun day, the tunes were blaring, drinks were flowing thanks to our amazing friends at West Coast Cooler and everyone was munching on jellies throughout the day. We also had a super cute selfie station ready to take some polaroids which we popped up around the store. It was so amazing to meet all of you who came and to see the enthusiasm for helping the cause. 

Huge thanks to West Coast Cooler for supplying us with our drinks and raffle prizes for the evening, Pieta House for working with us on the event and to all of you who came and showed support.
 

If you didn't make it down to us but you still want to help out, head over to the Pieta House website and make any donation you can. www.pieta.ie/donate

Love Your Community - Nine Crows X Pieta House

Love Your Community - Nine Crows X Pieta House

Something we are very proud of at Nine Crows is that over the years we have grown from a brand into a community, one full of inspiring people who we care deeply about. We’re also aware that there are many of you within our community who are struggling everyday with mental health issues and devastatingly, we have lost several members to suicide. We've decided it's time to do something about it, to stop sweeping mental health under the rug and pretend it's not happening. We want to launch a campaign here on our blog where we address the issues our community is facing and try to help in any way we can. 

We've decided to launch the series this Valentine's Day, a day about celebrating those who you love. We want to show our love for you guys, from our staff to our models to our customers, everyone who makes up the Nine Crows community and help raise awareness for this huge issue which is affecting us. We want to remind everyone that love is all around us, it comes in all shapes and sizes from many different people and the importance of showing your love for your community and supporting each other.

We've decided to hold an in-store event in both our Dublin and Galway stores in aid of Pieta House this Valentine’s Day where we can all hang out together and show our love for each other while raising some much needed funds for a cause that has deeply affected our community. 20% of all sales on the day will be going to Pieta House and there will be donation buckets in store. Join us for some deadly tunes, super cute selfies at our selfie station and some FREE West Coast Cooler (from 5pm)! If you can’t make it on the day but still want to help out, you can donate to Pieta House at www.pieta.ie/donate

Keep an eye out for the online campaign launching soon.

Let’s come together and show our love for our community.
