COPE Ltd in partnership with Societi - The UK Foundation for Kawasaki Disease

Kawasaki Disease is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in children in the UK. Hundreds of children each year in the UK are affected by Kawasaki Disease and that number is rising dramatically. But as an illness, worryingly, it remains little known.

Rachael McCormack, Founder of Nottinghamshire based Societi, the UK Foundation for Kawasaki Disease said “We’re constantly looking for new ways for people to get to know about Kawasaki Disease - it’s just so important that everyone knows this disease.

We had the idea to develop a luxury hand wash which we’ve named “All Heart”. We wanted something which will be around in homes for a long time, become familiar - become well known. Which is just what we need Kawasaki Disease to be - if children’s hearts are to be protected. Early diagnosis and treatment are simply the best ways we have right now to prevent the devastating heart damage this disease can, and all too often does, cause. We were incredibly lucky to have fantastic partners to support us - both as sponsors and project developers - and bring our idea to reality!”

Simon Chaplin from GreenStones, who founded the project to bring the first batch of special edition, awareness raising hand wash to 100 homes and offices said “We’re delighted to be able to support this innovative project - and let more people know about Kawasaki Disease. I hope this will inspire other sponsors to come forward, get involved and support this great cause.”

Ingrid Webb, CEO of Shetland Soap Company who created Societi’s “All Heart” hand wash said “It’s been a fantastic project so far - and a great collaboration. We developed a unique fragrance for Societi for their special edition, luxury hand wash and we’re so pleased to have played a part in helping to put the spotlight on this serious children’s illness - we’re delighted to be helping Societi in their work to raise awareness.”

We want everyone in the UK to know Kawasaki Disease. If you’d like some of the gorgeous “All Heart” hand wash, or to sponsor our next 100 bottles, get in touch with Rachael McCormack, Founder, Societi, UK Foundation for Kawasaki Disease.
