B1G1 Business for Good: REALLY connecting, really impacting. Every day.

  • School24 and More

    An Australian online ordering system for school canteens, School24 has now expanded to include B1G1 giving for needy children around the world.. more

  • School24 was conceived in a Sydney school when founder Abder Bloul noticed how food was wasted due to miscounting, and the huge amount of unnecessary repetitive work that the volunteers had to put in. He developed a web application that automates many of the processes involved in counting and preparing student lunch orders.

    School24 provides a set of online ordering tools for parents and schools, and is integrating B1G1 donations into their system at the school level, where each Australian school that joins will be able to select a school from B1G1 pool of schools to help.

    When a parent is about to submit any order, School24 will ask them if they want to feed a hungry child or help someone in need. And kids can either donate the value of one of their lunchtime food items to a hungry child, or simply select a small donation of say, 25 cents from the menu when placing their order. “Using my business to help feed hungry kids or provide shelter for the homeless is very rewarding,” Abder Bloul says. “B1G1 has done a great job of making the giving so easy and affordable for people like us; people who like to help others.” Read More...

  • Eduzine & Power of Small

    Gareth Jones created Eduzine in the UK to celebrate young achievers. The organization has learned to turn ad revenue into B1G1 contributions…more

  • Gareth Jones is the Managing Director of Eduzine Global, a magazine and website that celebrates young achievers around the globe. He heard B1G1 Chairman Paul Dunn speak to a group in London and then found a way to help children even more.

    "Using our publications and web content to generate advertising revenues for those in desperate need was the missing link,” Gareth told us. “B1G1 was the answer and IS the answer. Now, sharing great stories, generating income from advertising and sales and donating it to amazing projects are reasons why Eduzine exists.”

    Eduzine Global’s growing subscriber numbers are testament to the success of their philanthropic objectives, and Gareth shared some advice for others considering a B1G1 partnership. “We firmly believe in the power of small and in the knowledge that we are creating ‘one better world’. That is why I get up each and every day and why every business should join B1G1. Contributing even a tiny amount on a regular basis causes no hardship for your business, yet it creates a massive impact for someone in desperate need.” Read More...

  • Cheap Sheds offers the largest range of online shopping for sheds in Australia. Owners Krisztian and Maria Panczel knew right from the start that they wanted to share their success with the world around them. “I looked at different options and charities but couldn’t commit to anything at such an early stage of my business,” Krisztian told us. “When I heard about B1G1 through the organisation’s Chairman Paul Dunn, everything just made perfect sense. We’ve been with B1G1 pretty much since day one of our new business.”

    Their customers like the concept too. Most learn about their B1G1 giving activity after they’ve made their purchase. Krisztian sends them an email from the team, thanking them for their purchase and explaining how the B1G1 ‘embedded giving’ concept works. “It’s usually a nice surprise for them to learn that just by shopping with us, they made a difference…and we do get a lot of emails back acknowledging our giving activity, which is always nice. B1G1 is a concept that is easy to communicate to customers.” Read More...

  • The team at PPI Promotion & Apparel has been creating and delivering promotional products, corporate gifts and work wear for corporate clients across Australia since 1986. They’re the largest promotional marketing company in South Australia, and one of the top 10 in the country. They’re also active business partners with B1G1.

    Company owner Jehad Rasheed attended a presentation given by B1G1 Chairman Paul Dunn, and it was a memorable milestone for him. “Paul’s passion and the B1G1 story felt like an organisation PPI Promotion & Apparel should be involved with. If you spend any time with us, you’ll see that corporate and social responsibility is important to us, and B1G1 ticked the boxes for what our company was looking for.”

    “B1G1 is a catchy brand name,” Jehad told us, “Our clients like the concept and often praise us for our involvement, as they are aware we sponsor several other organisations too, most of them mainly related to helping kids.

  • Survey Giving Incentive

    Each time a customer fills out a feedback survey at Lucentum Chartered Accountants in the UK, a contribution is made to B1G1...more

  • At Lucentum Chartered Accountants, Managing Director Melinda Atkinson created a rewarding concept involving their Customer Satisfaction survey.

    As an incentive, the firm decided to provide a set of prescription glasses to a disadvantaged child through B1G1 every time a Lucentum customer feedback form was completed. Melinda explained their strategy this way: “Not only will feedback help us see more clearly what we can do for our customers, but we also pledge to have an impact on the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.”

    “We give every month to B1G1 causes too, selected by everyone is the group. Currently our giving has been limited to rewarding the efforts of the team, and our giving is split between our team members based on their individual effort. They then decide which causes they would like to support.”

    “We were looking for a way in which we could satisfy our social responsibilities and support good causes both here in the UK and in underdeveloped places. B1G1 filled the bill!” Read More...

  • Cafe's Inspirational Giving

    A Brisbane accounting firm opens a meeting place/cafe, where business people can inspire one another and give back with every cup of coffee they sell... more

  • Inspire Café in Brisbane, Australia, is at the very core of an accounting firm. It’s an ideal meeting space and business centre, the brainchild of 24 year-old Chartered Accountant, Ben Walker.

    Ben’s idea was to create a space where business owners and entrepreneurs could unite over great coffee and a bite to eat and share ideas. Their accounting firm (Inspire CA) had already been a part of B1G1, and now so is the café. Inspire Café has four meeting rooms, with that great coffee and a full service menu.

    Not surprisingly, Inspire Café has a CEO (that’s Chief Espresso Officer). And that’s Cam Silk. “We’ve had great feedback from our customers,” he said. “We’re already getting a strong sense of community, and we just opened the café in December! Most people want to know how to get involved in the giving – it's great!”

    Brisbane’s new Inspire Café. It’s a place to relax, to kick ideas round in a meeting, to sit back, and think forward. And to give back, through B1G1, with every coffee and meal they sell. Read More...

  • Small Seeds, Big Trees

    AVN Picktree is a team of financial advisors in Farnham, near London. They give 1% of their fee income each month to B1G1, demonstrating the Power of Small...more

  • The company logo at AVN Picktree Chartered Accountants in Farnham, southwest of London is, appropriately, a tree – with the fruit representing the many financial services that can be ‘picked’ by each client. The AVN label in their name represents their membership in a group of accountants which has about 300 member firms around the UK.

    Each month an AVN Picktree team member selects the projects the company will give to. Overall they’ve produced over 500,000 giving activities so far, which again demonstrates how quickly the Power of Small can add up! Rick reports that AVN Picktree clients applaud what their accounting firm is doing too: “They especially like to hear about the goats that we have given to needy families in Kenya – so far we’ve provided 107 of them!”

    Rick Peet sums it up this way: “I think it’s definitely one of the best things that you can do, but it only works if something inside you wants to make a difference. I know that our team at AVN Picktree is guided by one fundamental, simple principle - to enhance and change lives.” Read More...

  • ‘Changing people’s lives for the better’ is not just an expression to Shahzad (Shaz) Nawaz, who heads up AA Accountants in Peterborough, England. It’s clearly a motivating force for him.

    “I’ve found that givers gain at the end of the day,” he told us. 

    “And with B1G1, you can also make an impact worldwide, not just locally. You can make a donation every time your business enters into a transaction, and that’s very powerful for me. It becomes part of the value and the culture within your business. We try to find a cause that ties into our client’s business, so if someone is in the education or training sector, we’ll try to tie in their donation to that sector within B1G1. Or I’ll ask them directly which causes are close to their heart, and we’ll try to donate to those causes. And they love the fact that it’s making a difference, without them having to do anything extra, but they feel they’ve had an impact on somebody out there in the big wide world. Now that’s a very powerful concept.”

    And it’s a powerful process now, embedded deeply into everything the firm does. Read More...

  • SMART Ways to Give

    Brenda Thomson and her team at SMART Small Business Forums in Melbourne make small things grow into larger B1G1 contributions! more

  • As CEO of SMART Small Business Forums in Melbourne, Australia, Brenda Thomson has come up with a few clever ways to motivate her members to contribute to a good cause like B1G1!

    “I love looking for creative ways to divert the funds I would normally be spending on things like marketing or supplies, and sending it on to B1G1,” she told us. “One thing that worked very well was asking people to return their lanyards after each business event by putting them into one of three boxes (water, food, trees). SMART Forums then makes a donation for each returned lanyard. It has actually saved us money!”

    “Another strategy is, instead of handing out brochures or running competitions at expos, I ask people to put their business card into one of three boxes (water, food, trees), and I then make a donation for each business card. Telling them about their B1G1 contribution provides a great reason to follow up after the expo and stay connected.”

    Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Brenda Thomson and her team have found some very SMART ways to do that for B1G1 worthy causes! Read More...

    SD Business Management in Glasgow is one of thousands of small businesses around the world that are making a significant difference as B1G1 Business Partners...more

  • Henry Ford used to say that “Quality means doing it right when no one is looking”. We know some people in Scotland who feel the same way about giving – SD Business Management in Glasgow is a proud B1G1 Business Partner.

    Owner Stephen Docherty told us: “We got involved in B1G1 because it seemed really powerful way to make a difference in the world. There are thousands of small businesses around the world and even if only 10% of them got involved, it could make a significant difference. At the same time, it also really reflects what we are about.”

    Their contributions go to a wide variety of worthy causes, but mostly to water, health-boosting treatments, child blindness and similar causes.

    “When a client signs up with us for their annual services, or even if they just want a single ‘one off’ service, we send them a Thank You letter for doing business with us, along with a B1G1 Certificate of Gratitude,” Stephen added. “When you’re in a people-oriented business, your clients are never surprised to learn that you care about people.”  Read More..

  • Giving Without Hesitation

    A wealth management company in Australia has learned the value of giving small - and without hesitation - by giving as their business receives..more

  • “We believe a project that makes a direct long term impact on a person’s life is very worthy of support, especially when it involves their essential needs,” Peter Wilson told us. His company, Strategic Wealth Management Solutions in Melbourne works with clients to manage their finances.

    They take pride in making a significant and positive difference to the lives of their clients. And they have often discussed how they could also help other, less fortunate people, and try to make a difference in their lives as well.

    The company now contributes 2% of the revenue they generate from the development of new wealth management plans for their clients to B1G1 Projects around the world. They make a point of asking their clients which of four giving ‘categories’ (water, food, health, education) most appeal to them, or are most aligned with their values.

    As Peter points out: “For the amount we would spend on a coffee without hesitation, an individual on the other side of the world can be given access to clean water for life. And that’s life-changing in so many ways.” Read More...

  • Catherine and Hayden Bell provide leadership training and coaching in Australia through their company Inspiration Leaders. The company was looking for a way to give more effectively and build a giving program into their new business model when Catherine heard B1G1 Chairman Paul Dunn speak at an event in Melbourne.

    Hayden Bell said it was a turning point for them: “Instantly we knew that B1G1 was the answer we were looking for. Giving is a central part of our business and we’ve seen how B1G1 makes it so easy and accessible for us to participate. As a company specialising in education, we mainly support education projects. We believe passionately in the value of great education for all stages of life, and we love giving support to the schools, teachers and students who could use a hand.”

    They use transaction-based giving to support a number of children around the world. “The giving we do through our training products is impact-based,” Catherine told us, “And that’s our favourite part of the business month – sitting down and choosing the worthwhile causes to support through our Global Giving Partner, B1G1.” Read More...

  • Green Galah is a new B1G1 business partner in Melbourne, Australia owned by Tim and Andrea Greig.

    B1G1 isn’t simply life-changing for the many people who benefit from contributions,” Tim told us, “But it’s life-changing for us as Business Partners too!

    What greater way to make a difference than to provide children with health care, books, bicycles, schools?” Andrea added. “To provide families with water and basic amenities? It doesn’t matter how little we can afford, whatever we give makes a huge difference.

    When Green Galah gets a new customer or receives a referral, they give to B1G1 projects around the world. At this early stage of their B1G1 Partnership, they’re choosing their projects on an ad-hoc basis, but they’re drawn towards assisting children who lack the many things we take for granted.

    We think B1G1 is inspirational, and we know we can inspire other people as well by undertaking socially responsible initiatives that we otherwise wouldn’t necessarily do as a cleaning company,” Tim said. Read More...

  • Dr. Ketan Shah runs the dental clinic in Bounds Green in North London, where they’re also known as ‘Life Transformational Dentists’ – providing pain-free dental care for busy people.

    I heard B1G1 Chairman Paul Dunn speak and also met him at a conference for dentists a few years ago,” he told us. “Paul's talk was amazing and had a big impact on me. I signed up as a B1G1 Business partner that same day!

    Since that day in January 2012, Brightside Dental have contributed to help a variety of B1G1 projects each month. They sponsor children, provide school supplies and help build homes through B1G1. Their team members decide on the causes to support, making contributions for each new client they see, all hygiene bookings, certain other treatments, and for those who sign up to their membership club.

    They always aim to see their clients on time, but also promise that if they keep the client waiting, they’ll give to projects for every 10 minutes clients are kept waiting past their advised appointment times. Read More...

  • Gifts from the Heart

    An accounting firm in Canada maintains a philosophy of giving and now, B1G1 helps extend their giving to the other side of the world... more

  • When you talk to Dawn McGeachy of Colby McGeachy Certified General Accountants about B1G1, she gets a bit emotional. “In June 2012 I had the privilege of attending Paul Dunn’s session at the AICPA conference in Las Vegas,” Dawn told us. “I was captivated by the story of B1G1 and the concept of giving each time you have a sale or provide a service. The B1G1 story touched me because I had been personally grappling with a desire to make a greater impact upon the world through giving, without knowing how I could ever make this happen, and in particular how we could use our firm as a means through which to facilitate this objective.

    When I saw the presentation it moved me to tears, and still does every time I talk about B1G1 with someone. I no longer feel powerless because with each passing week, each passing month, and going forward into the many years we hope to enjoy participation, I can see how our giving will change so many people’s lives – and that is a wonderful feeling.

    Without our involvement in B1G1,” Dawn concluded.. Read More...

  • New Zeal in Giving

    Lynda Carroll’s New Zealand consulting business found a new focus for their giving program through B1G1... more

  • Carroll Consulting in New Zealand works with organisations to achieve long-term business success. Company Director Lynda Carroll told us that before B1G1 came along, the company had been supporting various local charities in Wellington on an ad-hoc basis.

    The giving was totally dependent on who called them up with a request and was completely reactive. In addition, none of their clients were aware that Lynda and her colleagues supported charities.

    When I was invited to a seminar about B1G1 by a friend and heard Paul Dunn speak, it was like a light bulb going off - it just made total sense,” Lynda said. “It took the reactive element out of the equation and became part of our normal business process. It was an opportunity for the company to sit down and decide where we wanted to help.

    We toyed with various approaches such as contributing a dollar amount for every person trained. However because our consulting work is so varied, we decided on a percentage of revenue. That was a more consistent approach.” Read More...

    BLS Financial in Melbourne, Australia believes we are accountable to each other in this world... more

  • BLS Financial is headquartered in Bendigo, north of Melbourne, Australia, where Adam Mackenzie heads up the team. “We like to keep everything simple for our clients,” he told us. “Simple to understand ideas, discussed over a fresh cup of coffee in a relaxing atmosphere, including a built-in kids play room. But it’s not all roses sometimes, depending on what it is we’re helping them with. Our job is to keep everything on track and that means being accountable to each other. There’s no sugar coating at BLS Financial.”

    Their own accountants, (and B1G1 Lifetime Partners) May Partners got BLS involved in B1G1 in 2012. Adam explained how the company’s philosophy ties in with B1G1: “Doing what we do has allowed us to reach so many people in so many different ways, and it’s our constant desire and belief to make a difference in people’s lives, and to leave this world a better place, even if it’s just one person at a time.

    They like to spread their B1G1 contributions across many places and projects at BLS, although they tend to focus on kids and families. “Our clients are excited about us supporting B1G1 on their behalf." Read More...

  • The mission at Cashflow Manager in Adelaide, Australia is to provide small business owners with the simplest accounting software on the planet – software that empowers them to do their own bookkeeping and build a successful business.

    Giving has always been one of our core values since we began business 23 years ago,” said Wayne Burgan. “Away from the business, my wife Jan and I have been to Uganda to build houses for orphans and support a number of initiatives in the Philippines, both financially and physically, including the recent supply of beds to a hospital.”

    The issue of water supply is the focus of their giving at Cashflow Manager. “Having seen this problem firsthand, we know that clean water is a big issue in many parts of the world,” Wayne told us. “We’ve found B1G1 Water Projects are also easy to apply to product sales for transactional giving.”

    It’s good to see that running a successful business and participating in B1G1 is such fun and rewarding. It didn’t come overnight to the company. It’s the result of almost a quarter century of giving, and the concept now supports their entire business philosophy. Read more...

  • Ken and Andrea Landt own Ken Landt Diesel Repairs in the Bundaberg region of Queensland, Australia. The Landts deal every day with repairs and maintenance...so why not try fixing the world?

    Our accountant introduced us to B1G1,” Andrea told us. “We'd not heard of it before, but we really liked the idea of being able to help many people in many different places, as so little we do in western countries seems to make much difference. We have been blessed with a successful business and we’re in a financial position to help others.

    "It isn't easy choosing B1G1 projects,” Ken Landt told us, “They all seem worthy. We try to give to different ones every month. We particularly like to help with immediate needs for living, like clean water & food. Also we look for giving that will help those who are disadvantaged to improve their position in life... things that will generate income through a gift or education.

    The Landts say they particularly appreciate that all of their giving through B1G1 goes to the people ‘on the ground’ and it’s not diluted by administration fees. “I like the fact that all the organisations B1G1 registers have passed a very stringent audit to qualify for their help,” Ken added.

  • The Director of RJS Accounting Services in Queensland, Australia was at a conference on Hamilton Island in 2012, listening to a presentation from B1G1 Chairman, Paul Dunn, when the penny dropped. Just days before, Kylie Anderson, had been on the B1G1 website to see if she could get one of her charities listed as a B1G1 cause. But now she realised how much more she could accomplish as a B1G1 Business Partner, and she signed up.

    Her colleagues at RJS Accounting now take turns selecting the B1G1 causes they want to support. “Three of my team choose their causes one month, and the next month the other three choose,” she said. “I then take a percentage of our monthly turnover and divide it by their choices.

    I am SO pleased with our involvement in B1G1. It gives me enormous pleasure at the beginning of each month to make the contributions!” Kylie Anderson adds: “It’s my ultimate goal, very long term, that our client base will be full of B1G1 partners. They’re obviously the sort of clients we’d love to work with, with the same goal of helping the world become a better place as they build their businesses.Read More..

  • The Inner West branch of Merit Financial Planning in Sydney, Australia has just become a Business Partner with B1G1, and Director Rachel Towell says it’s a natural fit.

    I have always wanted to be involved with charitable work,” she told us, “But I never really had the scale or means to make it happen. I wanted to somehow link my passion for conservation and giving, to my work in the financial services industry.”

    As a B1G1 Business Partner, every time Rachel finalizes business with a client she selects an organization to support on their behalf, using some of the income that was generated doing business with that particular client. For example, she recently selected giving fruit trees on behalf of a client who had just bought a farm. She tries to make the contribution personal to the individual.

    Rachel has already received many positive comments from Merit clients. “People are delighted to receive the special certificate that details their gift through B1G1. It really puts what I do into perspective and gives me immense satisfaction.Read more..

  • Phil Owens of Resourced Leaders, an Australian human resource development company, knows a lot about making a difference around the world. He spent 20 years at the top of international business, serving as the head of global strategic marketing based in Berlin, as well as the head of business in developing countries for another company – roles which gave him massive firsthand experience into the real needs of people around the world. He moved his family back to Australia from Europe in 2010 and established Resourced Leaders in Melbourne, where he works regularly with local and international clients.

    When I started my business I was keen to do more than just make money,” Phil said. “In fact, the rampant greed and need to make money I kept hearing from others did not sit with my values. I had a plan that for each dollar earned, a percentage would be used to help those less fortunate, along with giving my time to appropriate causes." He learned about B1G1 at just the right time.

    Depending on the work I do, I decide on the spread of my donations,” Phil commented. “If I work with building or construction – I give to building projects.” ....Read More..

    With a name like 'Balance at Work', we've always known that work is about a lot more than just making money,” Susan told us. “We were inspired to join B1G1 when we heard Chairman, Paul Dunn, speak here in Sydney. Such a simple and effective way for Balance at Work to 'give back' was really appealing to us. We particularly liked that we could link our contributions to B1G1 with our work with clients.

    Each of the projects we contribute to is linked to a service we sell,” she says, “And those B1G1 projects are often relevant to that service. Over the time we've been members, we've selected projects involving primary, computer and workforce education, microcredit, life coaching, meals and the environment!

    We’ve found B1G1 makes giving so much more of a regular habit. B1G1 keeps us informed and makes it easy to share the concept with our clients.Read More...

    We first heard about B1G1 from (Chairman) Paul Dunn while attending the Streetsmart Marketing Event,” Director Steven Nguyen told us, “I knew right then and there that this would be a great opportunity for our company to reach many people who are in need in different countries.

    Every month our team chooses a cause and dedicates the whole month to it,” he continued. “We try to incorporate themes, too, like in February – the month of love. For every invoice created we covered the cost of building a playground for a child in Cambodia. This way we extended our love to these children, giving them the opportunity to learn while at play.”

    Success is sweetest when shared. At Nhan International they believe that by providing support to organizations, families and children across Australia and the rest of the world through B1G1, they help them live healthier and happier lives. And all from the bounty of the sea! Read more...
