HealthPost welcomes applications from charities listed on the New Zealand Charities Register to be a Charity of the Month. If selected, your organisation will receive $1 from HealthPost for every customer who selects your charity at checkout, for the selected month.
It needs to be an official representative of the charity who lodges the application.
HealthPost believes that the wellness of the individual is always connected to the health of the broader community and the natural environment. Charities that have an established record of supporting these broad aims are most likely to be chosen. Selected charities will have broad national appeal and are unlikely to be sports clubs, school associations or regional organisations.
The HealthPost donation page is a guide to organisations that have been successful in the past.
In addition to the funds donated (averaging $7,000 at time of writing) the selected Charity of the Month receives a great deal of publicity through HealthPost’s communications to its large database. A paragraph about the selected charity is featured in the Healthy Posting flyer which goes out with every one of the hundreds of orders that are dispatched daily. The charity is also featured in an email newsletter that goes out to about 130,000 customers at the beginning of the selected month.
To maximise your $1 ‘vote’ it is a good idea for the selected charity encourage its supporters to shop at HealthPost for the selected month. This also introduces HealthPost to some new customers, which helps grow turnover and subsequent donations.
We would love you to make a 1-2 minute video of what you spent our donation on. Home-made is fine – entertaining and informative for our social media and your on-going publicity.
