WNU DNA: The Charity Round Up

 


With Nothing Underneath was created to make the perfect boyfriend shirt, but as a business, we wanted to be more than just a product.

Since we were established in 2017, our values have been rooted in ensuring that we practice as ethically and sustainably as we can, in every aspect of WNU.

 When it comes to our staple shirts, we ensure that these are affordable, sustainably sourced and timeless. But when it comes to us - With Nothing Underneath - I wanted to make sure that we used our brand, and our platform, to do good, which is why we made a promise to support a charity every quarter. 

In 2020, we have had the privilege of supporting and raising awareness for a number of amazing charities and your support, however big or small, means everything.

On behalf of all the charities and us, WNU would like to say thank you to everyone who has made donations throughout this year!
