Coco Moon began with the simple idea for a Hawaiʻi inspired baby blanket that everyone in our family would love and connect with. Since then, it’s evolved into so much more, becoming a vehicle through which we can connect with and support families in our local communities.
We always knew that we wanted to weave a giving back program into the fabric of our company. In 2017, we were able to bring this desire to life by officially launching our giving program, pledging 1% of sales each month to local organizations doing powerful work in our communities.
Since then, we’ve had the privilege of contributing to over 30 Hawaiʻi non-profit organizations. In the last two years, we've focused our giving to the Kapi'olani Medical Center's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
As a company rooted in the culture and spirit of Hawaii and all things babies, it was only fitting that we help support some of the most vulnerable babies of Hawaiʻi. The Kapi'olani NICU was the perfect way for us to do just that. To date, we've donated over $40,000 that's been directly used to support families and newborn keiki.

As someone who was impacted by many of Hawaiʻi's community programs while growing up, I feel overwhelmed with gratitude for being able to give back to a community that gave me and so many others so much. Mahalo for helping us to giving back to our local community.
