Clothes clothes clothes. We ALL love buying clothes right? There’s nothing better than the feeling of walking back from town with a great big bag of swag on payday or coming home to that ASOS parcel.
So what if there was a clothing company that not only made you feel good because you had bought something, but also because you were helping a charity? That would be an added bonus, and you could almost use it as a reason not to feel guilty when you have spent half your wages on chunky knits and tunics and need to borrow money to actually get to work.
The Nothing clothing company is a new, and innovative business idea that sells clothing to help charities. As well as their clothing website, in the future, they are also looking to have events to help all of their chosen charities as well. Providing you with the outfit AND the event, clever stuff, just give me some alcohol Nothing and I’m there!!
On Nothing’s website www.nothingclothingcompany.com there is a list of charities, which is so diverse it will please customers from animal lovers to people who staunchly support Cancer research.

“Cancer Research UK are the world’s leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. Our ground-breaking work has saved millions of lives worldwide.

Not only is it great to see a company content to support so many good causes, their clothes are actually really nice.
This Zous Bespoke Sweatshirt Dress (RRP £48.99) is probably one of my favourites. Be honest ladies, we ALL struggle to stay glam AND warm in the winter. I find I’m either looking fabulous freezing my tits off, or looking like a trucker keeping nice and toastie.
They do baby bits as well, and I have to admit, although I am about as maternal as a sandwich, this is really cute.
So if you want to feel a bit better about having done no Christmas shopping but literally buying loads for yourself, check out Nothing and at least feel comforted that you are doing something for charity.
