Charities We Support
Giving What We Can Pledge
We are the first New Zealand business to sign the Giving What We Can Pledge, joining over 8,000 other people and businesses around the world in committing to giving at least 10% of our profits to highly effective charities. In practice we give much more than this – Barcodes Ltd is owned by the Better World Initiative charity therefore 100% of our profits go to charitable purposes.
