THE MOIMOI MISSION

@moimoimarket

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. 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, and islands.

10% to Moi Moi Market Pledge

5% to Heart Ranch www.heartranch.org A Big Island Non-Profit that helps our keiki through a 6-week horse therapy program in Hilo.

5% to Ho`ōla Nā Pua https://hoolanapua.org A Non-Profit organization committed to providing a home with comprehensive therapeutic services for female underage victims rescued from sexual exploitation.
