WHAT THEY DO: Yazda is an inspiring charity whose mission is to support the Yazidi community in the aftermath of the August 2014 genocide committed by ISIL. This resulted in the abduction of five to seven thousand people, mostly woman and children; and the displacement of 400,000 people from the Yazidi homelands.

WHY WE LOVE THEM:  Because we cannot possibly imagine what the Yazidi community has been through. The women supported by Yazda will be similar to us! Just trying to get by! But their life experience will be world’s apart. Yazda are committed to protecting and supporting women who’ve lived through devastating circumstances, and we’d like to do everything we can to help them help Yazidi women and children get back to some version of normality after their horrific experiences and continued struggles as refugees. 


SM #GOODTEES: Every time you buy one of our #GoodTees we donate £15 per sweatshirt and £10 per T-shirt to charity. Our STRONG and Y designs support YAZDA. 

SM DONATIONS: As of Feb 2017, we’ve now donated over £515K to our chosen charities, £14,947 of which has gone directly to YAZDA so far. 
SM SUPPORTS: Our above donations have been spent on the following projects:

Psychological Support for female survivors of IS enslavement
Case Management
Medical Services in IDP camps and in The Sinjar Mountains
Advocacy and supporting ISIS survivors

YAZDA SAYS: “Thanks for your wonderful support to Yazda`s work.”
