About Share The Feeling:

Share the Feeling is a happy little enterprise based in Hackney, East London. We employ local people with learning disabilities – The Chain Gang – who use their skills and talents in making a range of ©Little Gifts and cards to make people smile. Our main range is ©Little Gifts of Feeling - colourful, handmade cotton bags filled with special ingredients like: bells – so you jingle all the way, coins – so you’ll never be broke, marbles – in case you lose yours, smiles and chocolate kisses. The ingredients are symbolic of the different feelings in the range, which includes Christmas Cheer, Festive Fun, Happiness, Love, Friendship, Thanks and more... They’re Little Gifts with a BIG impact and perfect for when a greeting card just won’t do.

This festive season, we've teamed up with North London charity Kith & Kids (who support children and adults with learning disabilities and their families to lead full lives and access the services they need) to create stylish Seasons Greetings cards with a truly ethical difference. £3.50 from each pack sold goes to Kith & Kids and the rest of the money creates jobs at Share the Feeling. What’s not to love?


We want to show that you can run a successful, profitable business employing people with learning disability and that their talent and skills add value to the product. The Chain Gang aims to make the world a better place, one ©Little Gift at a time. They inspire everything we make and do.
