Our Humanitarian Pledge
We are the lucky ones.
My children have a roof over their head, too many toys in their rooms, safe communities, bellies that are rarely grumbling and closets that continually fill with new clothes each time they grow an inch. The urge to build something meaningful for those that do not share our fortune, has long been brewing. As CouCou grows and its magic reaches into so many of your homes, we have an opportunity to give to humanitarian causes.
We have chosen refugees as our mission and have officially partnered with USA for UNHCR (also known as the UN Refugee Agency), who are on the ground helping to rebuild, aid and protect people forced to flee their homes. Whilst the world's eyes and hearts are currently with Ukraine, there are hundreds of thousands of refugee families around the world, from countries such as Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Iraq, Syria, South Sudan, Yemen, Colombia and the list goes on.
The refugee crisis is widespread and worsening. Most displaced families are torn apart or have lost essential members of their family. The road to recovery can be devastating but with the right support and their courage, they have hope for a brighter future.
In March 2022 we began donating a percentage of monthly profits to USA for UNHCR .
To date, we have pledged $4,800.
This is made possible by YOU, our amazing customers who have trusted and bought from our small family-owned shop.
We are working on developing more programs/collaborations in this humanitarian space and will share our journey with you along the way.
5 Million Refugees
More than 8 million people have fled Ukraine and another 7 million+ have been internally displaced, stranded in a war zone or unable to leave.
Ukraine needs peace.
UNHCR is on the ground and working around the clock to bring aid to those fleeing the war. CouCou is humbled to be a partner of USA for UNHCR. Every CouCou purchase you make, gives a portion of proceeds to help their efforts.
