Pushing the Envelope - The National Literacy Trust

Oli has been invited to get inspired for ‘Pushing the Envelope’ 2012 and design an envelope to raise money for the National Literacy Trust.

The celebrities & designers involved in the seventh annual Pitney Bowes Pushing the Envelope campaign have transformed everyday envelopes into exclusive works of art which will be sold on eBay from 12th March 2012 until 22nd March 2012.

Oli’s envelope will be amongst other names supporting the initiative this year including actress Dame Judi Dench, fashion designers Giles Deacon and Louise Gray, authors Joanne Harris and Sir Frederick Forsyth, children’s author Rod Campbell, singer Dame Shirley Bassey, musical group Coldplay and Olympian Sally Gunnell OBE.

All proceeds from the auction go to the National Literacy Trust; a charity that works in disadvantaged communities across theUK, helping people to gain the literacy skills they need for success and happiness throughout life.

From our earliest days, we’ve adopted a business model that incorporates environmental and social responsibility at every step. Each season, we increase the proportion of ecological, organic and recycled fabrics and will continue to do so until they represent the entirety of our collections. We also ring-fence a proportion of our revenue to put towards planting trees with the Woodland Trust.
