Coincidence often leads to clarity - introducing B1G1

Keith Abraham CSP is an Australian Professional Speaker I admire greatly. Recently I went to his website to get his phone number (my phone died with all the numbers on the phone not the sim card!) While visiting Keith’s site I noticed his support of B1G1 and asked him about it. I then had email conversations with Paul Dunn the Chairman of B1G1. Long story short, Carol (my wife) and I decided our search for an easy way to give via Differencemakers Community was over and we joined B1G1. On the same day Carol and I decided this was our direction I received an email from Richard, a Torchbearer member of Differencemakers Community in Scotland, recommending B1G1! Coincidence often leads to clarity!

From 1st of August a percentage of all Torchbearer membership fees will go to B1G1. The result is two families are fed for a day in Africa/Kenya through World Youth International and we help further the work of Room to Read who believe that “world change starts with educated children- and that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty.”

About Buy1GIVE1

Buy1GIVE1™ or B1G1™ matches businesses with charitable causes right around the world so that every business transaction makes a difference somehow, somewhere, every second, every day. But it doesn't just 'match' businesses with worthy causes; it does it at a level never seen before by matching every transaction in some way to a specific outcome. And it does more than that too. Its adds a powerful branding and marketing 'engine' that actually builds business. And that simply means that businesses can give even more to make a difference.

“We’re not here to give in order ‘to get’. We’re here to have more to give more.” - Masami Sato, Founder of Buy1GIVE1
