“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”
Winston S Churchill
Giving back to the community is of the utmost importance to the entire Shhh Silk team. Our founder Olivia raised two small children from the young age of 20 and whilst at that time she did not have an abundance of material possessions to offer her children, she had an open heart full of love in which she nurtured her children and taught those around her to appreciate the true meaning of giving. An English novelist once said ‘one must first be poor to know the luxury of giving’. It is now through her own luxury beauty label Shhh Silk that Olivia and her team are able to continue giving back to the community in which we all live.

RELIEF SOCIETY OF TIGRAY
Shhh Silk has partnered with REST (Relief Society Of Tigray). With each purchase of a Shhh Silk product since 26th December 2015 we continue to donate funds so that with every order placed online we can fund an orphan in Tigray, Ethiopia to go to school for a year with school books and supplies. Our aim is to support as many orphans as possible to attend school this year and to successfully change the lives of the poorest, we are looking to continue our partnership with REST and work together to create more ways to enhance education for children in Ethiopia.
The Relief Society of Tigray, REST, was founded in Ethiopia in 1978. It started as a relatively small organization in response to the needs of Tigrayan refugees displaced by drought and war to neighbouring Sudan. As famine conditions worsened in 1984/5 affecting large numbers of the Tigrayan population, REST initiated large scale cross border relief operations, and at the same time, implemented a range of agriculture, water, environmental, health and education activities in order to keep families on the land, and to restore their productivity.
