$10M raised - $1 at a time

 


Last week we awoke to the milestone of $10M raised by i=Change brands. This is deeply humbling, and I find it hard to believe…

While this has been a long journey… the majority of these funds have been raised in the last three years, signaling how this movement is growing, and as consumers we’re beginning to demand the businesses we support are helping build a better world.

100% of these funds go to NGOs working on the front lines on some of the most challenging issues of our time; to empower women & girls, protect, feed and nurture people and the natural world that sustains us all.

In 2014 I had an idea. What if businesses gave back from every sale? What if we could create a new funding stream to support best practice NGOs working on the ground with a focus on empowering women and girls. 

Nine West was our first major brand to join us. Dozens followed and now hundreds of brands are giving back. Thank you to those large and small from Bird & Knoll to Camilla to Clarins and National Tiles…. to those have joined us recently and those that have been giving for years. Your choice = change.

And now $10M raised. Yet what does $10M mean as impact?

It means up to:

  • 2 million lives impacted
  • 8 million kg of carbon stored
  • 7.5 million kg of sediment removed
  • 500,000 kg of plastic removed from the sea

i=Change exists to fund extraordinary NGOs committed to best practice work – often in some of the most challenging parts of the world – and to make giving back as a business simple, valuable and meaningful.

As we look towards the horizon in this critical time, it seems there’s an innate responsibility to be working within the system to change the system, to build a new model for business that begins to heal each other and the planet.

Let’s be the change, together.
