Our new Ebloggers partnership

Feel your best whatever your story.

Ebloggers give new life to fashion and beauty pieces from your favourite influencers – including Katie Piper – so that you can #weartheirwardrobe and style lush pre-loved clothing pieces. Now we’ve teamed up, so by shopping with them you’re also supporting survivors of burns.

At the Katie Piper Foundation we know how important it is to feel your best, our Rehabilitation Centre works with burns survivors to increase their confidence and boost physical and mental health. In February 2019, friends Amy and Amber came to stay at the Centre for a month following severe burns caused by an accident on holiday. Amber said, “We’re lucky enough to be able to cover our scars, so I’d forget about them. It wasn’t until I undressed, or I’d see images on social media of girls with perfect bodies that it would trigger me that mine isn’t any more.  I went in to the Rehabilitation Centre really nervous and shy about my scars, and left feeling really proud. I found confidence I didn’t know I’d lost – and now I feel like myself again.”

At the Katie Piper Foundation we want everyone to feel their best, whatever their story. Our fantastic collaboration with Ebloggers means that at least 5% of your purchases, and donations made by the Eblogger VIBs, are given to us. We’ve already received £1,477.99! And the more you shop, the more we can support survivors like Amy and Amber. Plus as an amazing special offer, you can get 15% off your next Ebloggers purchase using the code KP15.

Simon McCabe RP15

The Katie Piper Foundation are very proud of our patron Simon McCabe of Scarborough Group International who raised a phenomenal £8,500 in sponsorship for us by taking part in The Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 11th October 2015. This significant sum will help us to reach even more people living with burns and scars.

We will have places for runners in The Royal Parks Half Marathon in 2016, so watch this space for more details or get in touch with Sarah sarah@katiepiperfoundation.org.uk to register your interest for this, or any other running events you would like to get involved with in 2016.

Interactive services

We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site, including, without limitation:

  • Chat rooms
  • Forums
  • Bulletin boards.

Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).

We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.

The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.

Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
