B1G1 is a Social Enterprise and a non-profit organisation with a mission to create a world that’s full of giving. Unlike conventional giving models, B1G1 helps small and medium sized business achieve more social impact by embedding giving activities in their everyday business operation. Every business transaction (and as a result, your everyday activity) can impact lives and from as little as just 1 cent.
We do what we do because…
We believed that if giving was made simple, convenient and truly impactful, every business and every person would want to give and make a positive difference in our world. And we imagined a new world:
Imagine every time you had a meal, a hungry child also receives a meal… Or imagine if every time you had a cup of coffee, someone received access to life-saving water… or imagine if every time you had your bike serviced, a school in India received repairs and maintenance too…
We believe that small businesses and small everyday transactions can change our world when we come together through the sense of giving and caring. Belonging to B1G1 puts the ‘WHY’ back into businesses and brings back a sense of greater meaning and purpose. B1G1 let’s you create that joy and share it…habitually.
How it Works: The Unique Model
B1G1 is funded by a unique Business Partnership model which sustains the initiative and helps it create even more impact.
It allows the Board of B1G1 Giving to select, monitor and work with high-impact, close-to-the-ground projects at no cost to those projects.
It also means that 100% of your giving in B1G1 flows to the projects you select and it means too that B1G1 can develop unique resources to support your business to leverage and deepen the impact of your giving.
We have chosen to partner with B1G1 and as such we have decided to give a small portion of every directory listing and advertising banner to support some of their projects around the world. B1G1 Core Values
IMPACT – We carefully assess and list high-impact projects and forward 100% of your giving to them. With B1G1 every cent you give creates great impact.
HABIT – Impact requires action and sustained impact requires sustained actions. With giving embedded, your impact goes a long way.
CONNECTION – We link arms with businesses, individuals and social causes. By doing so, everyone benefits in highly leveraged ways, creating a deeper sense of connection.
