In a new purpose-driven business series, we will be featuring a different Business for Good every Thursday to showcase their unique giving stories. We hope these stories inspire you with interesting, new and joyful ideas on how to integrate giving into your business.
First up in the series are a bunch of fun-loving folks who’ve ‘goat‘ a real penchant for, well, goats!
Introducing…Clear Vision Accountancy Limited!
Who: Dee Gerrish from Clear Vision Accountancy Limited
Where: Corsham, United Kingdom
What: A vibrant team of 17 accountants, tax advisers and business consultants who are passionate about getting to know our business owner clients so we can create a difference for them and help them achieve their goals
Can you give us a sense of why you decided to start giving?
We are lucky to live in a developed country and enjoy the life and benefits of doing so. We are in a position to give back and B1G1 makes it so easy to do so, as we can integrate this giving into our everyday activities. We wanted to do so also to thank our clients for their support.
What are your favourite project(s) to give to and why?
We give goats to the families in Kenya as we feel it has some correlation with what we do — just as we work to enhance the lives and incomes of our clients, giving goats enhances the lives and incomes of families in the region.
How would you describe the impact B1G1 has had on your company and its culture?
We are a happy, vibrant bunch and this just makes us feel more fulfilled in what we are doing.
What’s the best experience you’ve had through your giving activities and being a part of B1G1?
Simply passing the certificates we provide to our clients each time we finish their accounts, tax return or consultancy project. Letting them know how they have helped us give for the benefit of those in need.
What question would you wish that we’d asked and what would be your answer?
How long have you been giving goats? Since we joined B1G1 back in 2011 — and we have just exceeded 1000 goats given! A full press release to come!
