Better World Donation Programme
At HealthPost we believe that the wellness of the individual is always connected to the health of the broader community and the natural environment. Since 2009 HealthPost has given $381,034 and counting, to vital charities (see below) including the Fred Hollows Foundation who have made the amazing video above thanking both us and you, our customers.
We'll donate up to $2.00 for every completed web order
You pay nothing extra.
All donations are made from HealthPost’s operating revenue. All you need to do is select your preferred charity on the order confirmation page after placing your order. We keep a tally and publish our monthly and quarterly donations on this page - see below. Thank you for helping us make a difference!
Along with our regular charities you can chose from a rotating Charity of the Month, which gives us a chance to spread our support more widely. If you have a favourite registered charity you’d like us to consider please encourage the organisation to fill out our online Charity Application form.
Your Current Charity Choices:
Charity of the Month - January: Bellyful
Bellyful is a nationwide charity with 20 branches throughout the country. They provide meals for families with newborn babies and families who are struggling with illness. Bellyful’s main criteria is simply that the families they support don’t have others available to do what they do – cook and deliver free meals. The other criteria is that the family must fall into one of these categories: Have a new baby (generally under three months old) or have a young family and someone in that family unit has a serious or terminal illness. There is no financial assessment involved, Bellyful’s service is based on more of an emotional need for support rather than on financial need. Run by volunteers, Bellyful receives referrals from friends, Plunket nurses, midwives, other organisations and of course parents themselves.

The Fred Hollows Foundation NZ
Preventing blindness throughout the Pacific.
The Fred Hollows Foundation carries on the work of a very special New Zealander, Professor Fred Hollows. Fred was an internationally acclaimed eye surgeon who championed the right of all people to high quality and affordable eye care. In the past twenty years, The Fred Hollows Foundation has restored sight to over one million people in some of the world’s poorest countries, often with a 20 minute operation costing as little as $25. We are committed to the fundamental right of health for all and are independent, politically unaligned and secular.

HealthPost Environmental Fund
Neutralising your parcel's carbon footprint.
At HealthPost we are committed to accurately measuring our carbon footprint, reducing and off-setting the carbon emissions produced by our deliveries and daily operations, and minimising our impact on the environment wherever possible. We offset our carbon through the highly regarded NZ-based provider Airshed. We’ve also partnered with Milnthorpe Park Scenic Reserve & Re-Forestation Project, and Golden Bay Coast Care, to do annual tree plantings in our local area. We’ve already planted more than 2000 trees in addition to our official carbon offsetting – learn more here.
