WHAT IS B1G1?
In 2007, a group of small-business owners had an idea. They asked, “What would happen if we all gave back just by doing the things we do every day?” It was a question that deeply inspired them.
Three years and a great undertaking later, they were able to design the systems and processes necessary to make it work, and their dream is now a reality.
The initiative was originally called ‘Buy1Give1’, backed by the idea that companies would create a specific giving impact with each designated business transaction. Today, the B1G1 initiative brings together more than 2,600 businesses from around the world — each making significant impacts in their own ways.
HOW IT WORKS
As a B1G1 member, you get access to the tools that help you experience and spread your joy of giving seamlessly. From providing a meal to conserving the rainforest, you can find hundreds of tangible opportunities with project costs starting from just one cent.
You can create multiple Giving Stories and update them periodically, and even automate your Giving Stories by creating automations with the apps you use in your business.
Once you start giving, you can share the impacts you’re creating so that everyone feels part of the progress you’re making.
