Decorator's Notebook donates a school notebook to a child in need for every new subscriber. Join the #notebookpledge

We can’t believe the Decorator’s Notebook Shop is approaching its first birthday! We wanted to find a meaningful way to mark the occasion and hope you will love this idea.

The Notebook Pledge is our way to give some very special presents to amazing kids, and give some very special discounts to our followers. For every single person who subscribes to our newsletter, we will pledge one school notebook to Unicef so a child displaced by conflict or natural disaster can continue their education.

Boys at school in Haiti with unicef exercise books

For every person who joins, we will make a donation that Unicef will turn into a school exercise book. Unicef will direct the books to the places they’re needed most, currently in Syria, South Sudan, the Central African Republic, the Philippines and Haiti. Unicef rebuilds schools destroyed by earthquakes, floods and landslides and sets up classroom tents in refugee camps to ensure learning can continue in the most horrendous circumstances. By joining our pledge, your school notebook will be part of this effort to give every child the education they deserve.

If you’re already a subscriber, thank you! Today we have donated a fantastic 356 notebooks – that’s one for you and every other person currently on our list. However, if you only receive blog posts by email that’s a different list… please make sure you’re part of the #notebookpledge by signing up for our shop newsletter and offers here.

Pottering in Portishead: Beach Hill allotments

The Good List: Elephant Branded cement sack bags

Decorator’s Notebook blog will be three years old next Thursday, so I’ve been in a bit of a ponderous mood this weekend. A lot has changed since I sat down and wrote my first post, but perhaps the biggest thing has been my attitude to what good design means to me. I’ve become a lot…
