Giving Back

At Hout & Co, together with you guys, we give back! It's our social responsibility to make this world a better place, so in August 2021, a month after our launch, we decided to launch our Giving Back initiative. 

We run out Giving Back initiative in a way that's meaningful to you, our customer. You choose, every month, where your money goes. 

How does it work?

We donate $1 from every piece sold and all additional donations from checkout at the end of each month to your chosen charity.  We will hold a new poll on our Instagram for you to choose the next charity each month, which means that even after your purchase you can keep having a positive influence on what is meaningful to you - long term. 

If you would like to suggest a charity or you are a NGO or charity and would like us to consider you for next month's donation, please get in touch.

  • March 2022 - Ukraine UNICEF

    In March, we sponsored UNICEF's Ukraine efforts, as voted by our followers.

    The children of eastern Ukraine have long been suffering the effects of armed conflict and unrest. Now as the fighting engulfs the entire country, they’re the ones bearing the brunt of this growing humanitarian crisis. They need our help now more than ever.

    The military operation in Ukraine poses an immediate and growing threat to the lives and well-being of the country’s 7.5 million children.  

    The needs of children and families are escalating in line with the conflict. Evacuations are ongoing in Luhansk Oblast and have started in Donetsk. As such, the needs are wide, ranging from water, nutrition, health services, hygiene products to towels and blankets, gas burners to batteries, fuel to first aid kits.  

  • February 2022 - Saving Hope Foundation

    This month's charity was the Saving Hope Foundation. Their mission goal is to place all abused, neglected and abandoned dogs with loving forever homes and owners who will make them part of their family. Owners who will give them care in surroundings where they will be safe, and live and play happily until it’s their time to pass on.

  • January 2022 - Child Cancer Foundation

    In January, you decided for us to donate to the Child Cancer Foundation.

    Cancer doesn’t care about these children or their families. The Child Cancer Foundation does. They support the families every step of the way, helping them overcome challenges and maintain control of their lives.
    They focus on the whānau, not the cancer. No two families’ experiences are the same, and neither is the nature of the support they need.

    One thing is always the same: they support every family so they can concentrate on the most important thing of all, loving and caring for their child.

  • December 2021 - BirdCare Aotearoa

    For December, you decided to raise money and awareness for BirdCare Aotearoa. They provide professional veterinary care and rehabilitation for sick, injured and orphaned wild New Zealand birds who have been rescued by members of the public. They also provide education and training for professionals, volunteers and the public who want to learn how to make a positive difference in the lives of our feathered friends.

    Birds come to them from throughout Aotearoa New Zealand and they give them a second chance at life.

  • November 2021 - Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand

    In November we donated as always $1 per piece sold but we also donated all of our Black Friday profit to the Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand which is a not-for-profit charitable trust. They rely entirely on donations from the New Zealand public including personal donations, fundraising events and corporate partnerships for their work. Their vision is zero deaths from breast cancer and their mission is pushing for new frontiers in early detection, treatment and support. They believe that one day, no one will die of breast cancer. Breast cancer will probably still exist, but we’ll catch it early, and treat it better to prevent it spreading (breast cancer rarely kills unless it spreads beyond the breast). And if it does spread, we'll have treatments and support to keep people alive for a very long time – just as now happens with HIV, diabetes and several other conditions that used to be a death sentence but which are now manageable over the long term.

  • October 2021 - Eating Disorder Association of New Zealand

    For the month of October, we supported the Eating Disorder Association of New Zealand, they're a registered charity run by volunteers who all have personal experience in the process of recovery from an eating disorder - either as parents, caregivers or recovered patients. Their focus is on improving the outcomes for people with eating disorders and their families. Alongside their education and support work, they also advocate for social & governmental change. They are the only organisation of their kind in New Zealand and they rely solely on donations and grants.
