human.kind is our social conscience. It's how we do good
We have two passions.
One is driving human connection through social interaction. The other is doing good through small, every day acts of kindness.
When was the last time you gave money to charity? Was it an unnoticed direct debit that’s been taking a tenner a month out of your bank account since the biggest question in your life was “Blur or Oasis?” Was it buying a straight-to-bin good-cause gift at your local school fete? Or did you donate your pocket full of shrapnel as a way to get the well-meaning but deeply irritating person off your doorstep?
The reality is, that the problems in the world can seem so big, that individuals feel too small to make a difference, and so they do nothing. But imagine if EVERYONE did nothing?
By donating at the checkout to our human.kind project you are giving back to local causes and supporting a business that strives to be unique, ethical, cruelty free and eco-friendly.
human.kind aims to show people that you can be charitable through every day actions.
Why choose us?
What started off as caffeine and a dream, is now a hustle where “No” is not part of our vocab, fear of failure has become our fuel to succeed, and every challenge is subject to a stare-off (we always win). We allow ourselves 5 emotional minutes in the day, then we’ve gotta be Gangster.
we love australia
While we have moments where we’re borderline offensive amongst ourselves, we have big hearts. We’re do-gooders, suckers for a cause, bleeding hearts. Call it what you will, we believe that most people want to help, they just don’t know how, so we provide that platform. By donating at the checkout, you’re helping us to help others through one of the charities we support.
we're cruelty free
Because going to bed each night knowing we didn’t contribute to any beings suffering makes our souls shine. All products sourced are vegan and/or not tested on animals
Who we support
Street Doctor is a mobile GP clinic that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of homeless, transient, disadvantaged and marginalised people in the Perth area. It’s an easily accessible, non-judgemental health service that works closely with other community services to promote interest in community health.
With over 9000 people in WA homeless on any given night, StreetDoctor helps to bridge the gap in the health of those living rough.
While StreetDoctor can assist with care and support for our street-folk, they rely on donations for essentials such as food and winter clothing to hand out.
Contributions from your booking will go towards warming the hands, feet & hearts of those sleeping rough on our streets, with winter woollies such as gloves, socks, beanies, scarves, blankets and sleeping bags provided to them.
Little Doves is a friendship and support group for mothers who have experienced loss. It was started by two Perth women who met after both losing full term babies. They offer a community where women who have suffered the loss of their baby can be supported by other’s who have experienced what they have been through.
Little Doves also make the memory boxes that mothers receive from the hospitals after a loss. They are filled with items to help them grieve and to make the short time they have with their baby in hospital as special as possible. There are many mothers who are not ready when they have an emergency birth, and have nothing to wrap their babies with or even items to have photos with. The boxes have items such as small blankets, wraps, teddies, photo frames, candles, small photo albums, flower seeds, face washes, beanies (from golf ball size up) to help the parents create a lifetime of memories with the baby in just a few short minutes or hours.
The contribution from your booking will go towards assisting Little Doves to create these Memory Boxes for grieving parents.
Specifically, this cool dude, Parker. This kind and gentle giant, brandishing a sore calloused neck and a tight bailing twine collar, was rescued from the council pound by Edgar’s Mission. He helped calm his scared friend Vincent Van-Goatee on the journey to their new home. A bout of life-threatening kidney stones meant Parker needed his urethra relocated. After surgery his intensive care involved managing his pain and recovery. Daily monitoring of nutrient and mineral intake keep kidney stones at bay and the contribution from your booking assists with this. Parker is the perfect gentleman and by his side every step of the way in life has been his best friend, Vince.
Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary is a not-for-profit farm sanctuary with a vision for a humane and just world for all.
It was founded by Pam Ahern and named after her first rescued pig, Edgar Alan Pig. Edgar, a gentle giant, touched so many people and was an amazing ambassador for pigs and farmed animals everywhere.
An estimated 500 million ‘food’ or ‘production’ animals in Australia are excluded from the protections of animal welfare legislation. They endure lives of abject misery in factory farms: barely able to move, they are subjected to acts of cruelty that would be illegal if done to a cat or dog. They live without sunshine, without freedom, without being able to socialise, without hope.
Edgar’s Mission provides you with a glimpse into a different world – a world of kindness.
