Our Purpose & Impact

At Pear & Park, we are incredibly proud of the business we've built. We didn't want to start a business to just sell things on the internet. We wanted to make sure we used our business as a force to do good by making sure we stock the best products, at competitive prices, so more people had the option to do good through their purchases. 

It's why we do what we do.  

  • We donate $2 for every item sold

    No caps or conditions, it's a flat automated donation to Room to Read from every item sold, via the awesome folks at Pledge. It's a simple and effective way to make sure that our commitmemt to make a difference is not dependent solely on our profit margins. It's our #pledgetodogood. Learn more about Pledge here.

  • We donate at least 40% of profits

    A minimum of 40% of our annual profit will be donated to local organisations that fight poverty and inequality and provide tangible support to those in need. The remaining profit will be reinvested to grow. The more we can make, the more we can give, and the more good we can do.

  • We are transparent in real-time

    We are super aware that as a start-up we need to earn your trust. That's why we have invested in the Pledge Impact Calculator both below and on our homepage to ensure real-time visibility of our performance. Test it out with your next purchase or donation, and watch our impact increase! We also do weekly posts on our socials to ensure full visibility.
