Each year we donate an amount of money to charity. We focus on Health, Environment and the Wellbeing of Young and Outcast. In each category, we support organisations who are operative within areas which are relevant to our every-day-mission in the Vagabond Group.
During Black Friday Weekend 10% of net sales were given to We Effect, an organization focusing on helping people in exposed areas to build a better and independent life. This means 28 582 EUR focusing on the We Effect projects around the world.
