In 2007, a group of small-business owners had an idea called Business for Good with B1G1. They asked, “what would happen if we all gave back just by doing the things we do every day?” It was a question that deeply inspired them.
Three years and a great undertaking later, they were able to design the systems and processes necessary to make it work, and their dream is now a reality. The initiative was originally called ‘Buy1Give1,’ backed by the idea that companies would create a specific giving impact with each designated business transaction. Today, the B1G1 initiative brings together more than 2,600 businesses from around the world — each making significant impacts in their own ways.
KWB joined B1G1 in January 2019 and since then, we have created tens of thousands of impacts all over the world. We match services that we provide to you with projects that enrich and enhance the lives of others.
