Through selling their rainbow Chip pins, the couple have raised over £800 for pregnancy charity, Tommy’s.
The pins sold out on the day they were released, with additional requests having to be pre-ordered.
Sophie Belle Brown and Dave Brown announced in December 2019 that they were expecting their first child in 2020. The pair have been vlogging Sophie’s pregnancy since and have been honest about how it’s going.
In particular, they’ve been open about how they’re coping whilst in lockdown, due to the coronavirus. The couple have frequently explained how they’re holding up, mentally, and how much they rely on their channel and its subscribers for support.

Well… we sold out 😭🌈🐕 We are on preorders currently which will last until Saturday and then they’ll be gone. So if you want a little rainbow companion the link is in my bio. As we said in the vlog, we were so worried about releasing our pin at this strange time but we’ve been completely blown away by everyone’s kindness and support. We honestly can’t thank you all enough! We have almost raised £700 for @tommys too which is absolutely amazing! You really are an incredible bunch of people! 🙏🌈✨
After recently revealing the future baby’s name to be Barney, viewers wanted to find ways to support the channel. As a result, Sophie and David released the charity rainbow Chip pin, where £1 of every purchase goes to Tommy’s, a charity that funds research into miscarriages and premature birth, while providing free pregnancy health information for would-be parents.
The pin features Chip, Sophie and Dave’s adorable dog, sitting over a rainbow.
“We created it to show us going for our dreams,” Sophie explains in the video. “It’s just nice that it’s now become a symbol of hope.”
What an incredible week! 😭 So much love & kindness sent our way. £800 raised for @Tommys_baby so far with our rainbow pin & so much support on the vlogs. THANK YOU! Last day to get your pin today 🙏🌈🐕 https://t.co/3VNYQQj6RN pic.twitter.com/LdObEGC39Q
