The situation in Ukraine is catastrophic. The crisis is the fastest growing refugee situation in Europe since World War II.
HARALD PIHL therefore supports UNHCR - The UN Refugee agency in helping the affected people. Every time you order from us, part of the turnover goes to UNHCR, which helps to send help packages from UNHCR to those in need in Ukraine. They contain emergency supplies such as blankets, sleeping bags, hygiene items, water and winter clothing.
Last month’s challenge to raise money for the PinkWalk campaign was a big success so we want our employees to engage once again for another good cause but this time it’s not for another walk, it’s time for growing out our moustaches to raise awareness of prostate cancer. We will be sending our donation directly to Swedish Mustaschkampen.
Let’s see which one of our HARALD PIHL family members can grow the fanciest, funniest, most extraordinary moustache in one month. And how about we make it a little contest?
No matter what, we are matching what we donated to The Pink Ribbon Foundation.
So it’s time for one last shave, to throw out your trimmers and to grow together with HARALD PIHL!
With a great company comes great responsibility. HARALD PIHL doesn’t back down when it’s time to spread awareness around. And this month we are joining the club of spreading the word that it’s breast cancer awareness month. So, this month we will add a little extra pink and care out there for you all. Stay tuned for what we are up to!
Right now, there are millions of children in the world who are refugees. These children desperately need our help and support. We want to contribute by supporting UNICEF's emergency relief to vulnerable children. We donate a portion of our sales to UNICEF. This means that all our customers, suppliers and partners are indirectly contributing by helping children in need. All contributions are counted and three bags of nutritional peanut paste a day may be all that is needed to save the life of a malnourished child. We hope we can inspire others to get involved in similar initiatives.

We support KARMA coffee and their project “Girls Gotta Run". KARMA COFFEE finances social projects by selling specialty coffee from Ethiopia. From these sales 10% of the revenue goes directly to the organization “Girls Gotta Run”. The organization is helping young girls in Africa through education. It also gives them the possibility to practice running and helps to get them out of poverty. Instead of sending money, we at HARALD PIHL thought it was a good idea to sponsor them for a new outdoor gym for future runners. A sustainable and long-term project to make the world a little better.
Strong companies provide jobs and welfare. HARALD PIHL is contributing 13 million SEK each year to welfare, which equals, for example:
- 8772 medical visits in primary care
- 37 personal assistants
- 93 pre-school seats
- 542 infarction operations
During Christmas 2018 we supported 4Ocean by buying their products. They are doing the incredibly important work in removing trash from the oceans and coastlines. "Made from recycled materials, every bracelet purchased funds the removal of 1 pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines. In less than 2 years, 4ocean has removed 3 419 985 pounds of trash from the ocean and coastlines." (https://4ocean.com/pages/our-story)
