Knowles Warwick are proud to announce that we have partnered up with Buy1Give1, an amazing organisation that helps businesses to increase the impact of their charitable giving simply by doing what they always do.
B1G1 founder, Masami Sato, realised back in 2006 how difficult it can be for SMEs to give back. He was running a successful food company in Australia that not only produced and distributed healthy packaged meals, but also used its profits to feed and educate underprivileged children. Sato’s idea to help businesses to give with every single transaction was immediately supported by a group of small business owners.
Since its beginnings, B1G1 has continued to grow, partnering with hundreds of businesses internationally, and working with charities worldwide to offer over 20 million micro giving opportunities to its members and partners. As a successful business we feel it is our duty to help those less fortunate and this gives us the platform to do that.
And do you know what? We actually like that ‘warm fuzzy feeling’ you get when you do something good like giving access to water to children in India or even contributing to their education.
