Wherever in the world
The entire week
Stay tuned for the next JOGWeek!
Every year, B1G1 celebrates its anniversary through Joy of Giving Week (JOGWeek), inviting others both within the B1G1 community and outside of it to take part in the joy that giving brings. Stay tuned for our next Joy of Giving Week!
Find out more about our past Joy of Giving Weeks.
In 2016, B1G1 took JOG Week literally. During this Joy of Giving Week (20-26 June 2016), many walked and jogged to accumulate steps that were converted to give gift of bicycles to children in Cambodia. As a result, we have given 66 children access to bicycles for a year.
2015: Smile for a Smile
We celebrated the 63 million smiles that have been created during the last 8 years by these small-to-medium-size businesses we work with. We matched the smiles of B1G1 businesses with the Worthy Causes that they have given to. There were also a range of special LIVE online events where B1G1 businesses could hear directly from the B1G1 Worthy Causes and connect with the stories they are creating.
2014: Shake the World
We launched our very first app: Shake the World, in celebration of Joy of Giving Week 2014. Shake the World is a free app that gives you the power to change lives. All you need to do is SHAKE. Every time you shake your phone, someone in need receives life-saving water.
Shake the World is no longer available on the App store (you can download Impact Now instead, to create giving on the go).
2013: The First Joy of Giving Week
In 2013, we celebrated B1G1’s 6th birthday by running a special week-long Joy of Giving Week at the B1G1 office. We pumped one blue balloon for each giving that was made each day for the 7 day period.
The result was the sea of blue balloons that totally filled up our office by the end of the week! Have a look at some fun videos and images featuring the week of joy! Thank you for making us pump hard!
