You pay nothing extra. All donations are made from HealthPost’s operating revenue. All you need to do is check the box next to your preferred charity. 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 - December: CanTeen New Zealand

CanTeen supports over 1700 young New Zealanders aged 13 - 24 living with cancer as a patient, sibling or bereaved sibling through the toughest time of their lives. CanTeen believes no young person should go through cancer alone. CanTeen has a national peer support network through 14 regional branches, which provide a range of professional, educational and recreational activities, as well as leadership and development opportunities, for members to share experiences and promote understanding and wellbeing. These camps, workshops and programmes empower, instil confidence and emotional resilience and give members the life skills and positive attitude needed to better cope with the uncertainties of living with cancer. CanTeen was founded by young cancer patients and still has young people living with cancer making decisions at every level of the organisation, including board level, because only they know what young people dealing with cancer truly need to support them.

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.

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.
