We’ve built this pillar with the belief that everyone is worthy of love and that together the POWER OF KINDNESS can make a whole lot of difference in this world.
Share & Care Nepal / Tearfund New Zealand
Our Flo Gives Back project in Nepal stemmed from our mission:
TO EMPOWER AND SUPPORT VULNERABLE WOMEN AND CHILDREN GLOBALLY.
To help us achieve this mission we’ve carefully sourced and designed a number of products where 15% of the sale price goes to helping vulnerable women in need in Nepal, through Tear Fund New Zealand’s partnership with Share & Care Nepal.
Check out the impact here: 2018 Impact. 2019 Impact. THANK YOU for joining our giving revolution and helping change the lives of these women in need in Nepal. Find out more about our Flo Gives Back project here.
Flo Family in Nepal in 2018, visiting Share & Care's work.
Thanks to YOU amazing customers, $3,000 was raised in 2017 to support women in developing countries start businesses, to give them a better future! 20% of the sales from all Christmas decorations and cards, were donated to make this happen. Together we supported Visionfund.org, to help them in their goal to work with communities in the villages of Chauk and Yenangyaung, to strengthen economic resilience, through better environmental management and farmer engagement. For more info, watch the VisionFund Impact video here.
As of 2019, Flo & Frankie began supporting Charity Water, by giving a monthly donation, to help the fight against the Global Water Crisis. 663 million people in the world live without clean water - that's nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide! Charity Water work with local experts and community members to find the best sustainable solution in each place where they work. Read on of their stories from the field here.
#FloGoesPink for the Breast Cancer Foundation
For the last two years, we have held a collection in store, encouraging customers to add a donation with their purchase, to help support the Breast Cancer Foundation. With 1 in 9 women being affected by this in Aotearoa, we felt this is such an important issue. We’ll continue to do this collection every October during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Mental Health Foundation
In 2019 on Pink Shirt Day, the team participated by inviting customers to give a donation with their purchase, to this worthy cause. This day is used to raise awareness about bullying, and to share aroha among the nation, especially those suffering from mental illness. As a business we chose to match the donations by the same amount. Going forward, we’ll make this an annual tradition.
Dunedin women's Refuge
The Te Whare Pounamu Dunedin Women's Refuge host a sample sale to fundraise money in order to aid their provision of some of the most difficult but necessary services for our society. We've loved being a part of this by supplying them with high quality seconds and samples they can then onsell a sample sale with all proceeds going to the Refuge for the last 2 years.
We love choosing brands with aroha (love), and whakawhanaunga (relationships) at the core of their business. Our supporting-communities section includes products and brands that give back, using one of the following practices: (1) donating a portion of their profits to a cause, (2) using a buy one, give one scheme, (3) volunteering their time, or (4) empowering and training local artisans to improve their livelihoods. You can shop away to your heart's content knowing that your purchase has a positive impact on someone or somewhere on this Earth.
