We are proud to announce Starlight Children’s Foundation as our official charity partner.  Starlight brightens the lives of seriously and terminally ill children by granting wishes and providing fun and entertainment in hospital wards and hospices throughout the UK.  YUU love making children smile too which is why we are delighted to announce Starlight as our official charity partner.

 

For most children, Christmas is their single favourite time of the year, a time awaited with much excitement and anticipation. Unfortunately, over 100,000 will spend time in hospital this Christmas. Being in hospital can be a daunting and often scary experience for young patients, and equally hard for brothers, sisters and worried parents too, particularly over the festive season.

 

We believe that every child deserves to have a happy Christmas. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Starlight to help raise funds for their Lapland wish trip.

 

Every year Starlight sends a group of seriously ill children and their families on a magical wish trip to meet Father Christmas in Lapland. YUU will help fund this wish trip by donating £1 from every Christmas bundle sold during 10th November to 24th December. The bundle consists of a YUUbag and six accessories.

During their stay, the families get to enjoy breath-taking rides through the forest on a sleigh pulled by a team of huskies, riding on snowmobiles, building snowmen, meeting the reindeer and, of course, the highlight of the trip… meeting Father Christmas!

 

The Lapland wish trip provides a wonderful escape for the brave children fighting and living with life-limiting conditions, their families and siblings. The trip is a real bonding experience for the families and children involved; the parents relax and enjoy spending time with other adults who understand what they’ve been going through and the children become really good friends and enjoy the magic of being a child again.

 

In addition to making donations for every Christmas bundle sold, YUU are also gifting all Starlight children and their siblings going on the Lapland wish trip with a YUUbag to provide fun and distraction whilst travelling.

 

You can support Starlight by adding your own donation via our checkout page or by visiting the charity’s own website.

We’re a little bit excited here at YUUworld as we’ve just found out that we’ve won not one but TWO new fantastic awards for our YUUbags! Yippee!

 

Loved by Parents have awarded our YUUbags the prestigious platinum award for the Best Travel Invention.  The platinum award is new for this year and has been introduced to recognise products with truly outstanding quality and design.  What makes this award so special to us is that it’s voted for by parents and is a true recognition of how we’ve designed our YUUbags to make being out and about with kids both fun and easier (for both kids and parents!)

 

In addition we have been recognised by Junior Design Awards as finalist for Best Travel Product for Children.

 

A massive thank YUU to all our fans who voted, we’re over the moon!
