Bex Kitchen was diagnosed with PDA aged 19 and kindly credits the support her Mum got from the PDA Society for helping to turn their lives around. Bex sells quirky, chic and vintage gifts from stationery to homeware on her website @GiftonomyUK, where she has recently launched a panda-themed range of gifts and is generous donating 5% of every sale from this range to the PDA Society! Many thanks to Bex for her support, do take a look at her site as there are some lovely items for sale at affordable prices.
