THE MOIMOI MISSION
Our mission is to help global and local fair-trade, purpose-driven, AND eco-friendly retailers sell more products so they can do more to better the world. We want to inspire individuals to become solutions to social injustices through the power of their dollar, by providing a one-stop shop for these products. Moi Moi Market also pledges a 10% give back from their profits to local organizations here in Hawaii or 20% give back to a designated nonprofit in a short term fundraising effort (a code will be given to a non-profit and must be used at the time of check out). If your organization would be interested in a Fundraiser, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We believe we can be a marketplace in Hawaii that helps support and empower local organizations (non-profits) who are doing amazing things to better our keiki, families, communities, islands, and the world.
