Jacqueline Jossa has raised more than £50,000 for the Samaritans charity in honour of Caroline Flack, who passed away last February
Jacqueline Jossa has raised more than £50,000 for charity following Caroline Flack's death.
The former 'EastEnders' star launched a Kindness collection for clothing site In The Style in memory of the late 'Love Island' presenter, and it has already raised a huge sum of money for the Samaritans in less than 24 hours.
The clothing company revealed on Instagram: "The new Kindness collection has raised over £50,000 for @samaritans in under 24 hrs! ... Every purchase you make is literally supporting someone who's struggling with their mental health & needs someone to talk to. Thank you, we are so grateful for your support so far! (sic)"
And it was an incredibly important collection for Jacqueline to be a part of.
Sharing the collection on her own Instagram account for its launch, Jacqueline shared: "In a world where you can be anything ... be kind ... The @inthestyle Kindness Collection is now live! 100% of profits from the entire collection will be donated to @samaritanscharity a charity that’s there to support people day or night and without judgement ... This has been such an amazing project to work on and want to thank you guys for all your quote suggestions and helping design the 'you are enough' T-shirt ... I'll be wearing mine with pride. The full collection, including the original be kind designs & the top I've designed is available online & on the ITS app now! (sic)"
Caroline tragically took her own life last February.
A family statement said at the time: "We can confirm that our Caroline passed away today on the 15th February. We would ask that the press both respect the privacy of the family at this difficult time."
