Creating positive experiences through our mood enhancing lenses has been central to our ethos since day one. We love that our sunglasses add a little bit of warmth to your daily travels; however we recognise that maintaining a healthy mindset takes more than that.
Mental health is an incredibly challenging issue at the heart of our generation and the Tens team. Today we’re sharing our first steps in actively engaging and driving support in what we feel is an immensely under-resourced space. We’re proud to announce our partnership with Scottish mental health charity, @tinychanges; a community of tiny change makers, working together to help young minds feel better.
Tiny Changes is a Scottish mental health charity set up in 2019 by the family of, and in memory of Scott Hutchison. Scott was best known to most as the lead singer and songwriter in Scottish folk indie band, Frightened Rabbit. Through his music and art, Scott made tiny changes that made a big impact.
His honesty and openness about his own mental health inspired people from all walks of life. Scott’s family felt sure he would want his voice to continue to be heard. This legacy inspired a bold vision; to make young minds feel better.
Tiny Changes has three main aims in its mission:
To kick-off supporting our friends at Tiny Changes we’re donating 10% of the proceeds of all sales between now and Sunday 8th August.
