Ever since the start of UNTAG back in 2004, we have always found it important to find ways to give back to the community. We understand and realise that there are many people who don't have access to, or the financial means for gender affirming items.
In March of 2023, we launched a new website with an updated checkout process. During the checkout process, you will find the option to leave a tip for the UNTAG team. It has been heartwarming to see how many of our customers have already left a tip for us, and we want to make it clear what we do with these tips. We also want to emphasise that while we greatly appreciate any tips, there is absolutely no pressure to leave a tip. We understand each and every one of you has a different financial situation, and the tip is definitely not a must!
