Many of us are blessed with the means to live a reasonably comfortable life, yet we get so caught up in our lives that we forget to stop, take a deep breath, and appreciate all that we have.
While we often take the things in our lives for granted, less fortunate people across the world are in need of basic necessities like food, clean water, medicine, and shelter. These people depend on the generosity and loving-kindness of people with a giving spirit.
It’s essential that we take a look at the world with a wider lens, outside of our comfortable bubbles, and do what we can to offer our support. This doesn’t mean you have to give a lot or beyond your means. No matter how much or how little you can give, you have the power to touch the life of another person and affect them in ways you may never completely be aware of.
Why we’re a B1G1 Business for Good
Osmond Saint is a member of the B1G1 Business for Good initiative—a global non-profit organisation with a mission to create a world full of giving. Founded by Masami Soto in 2007, this initiative provides businesses and consumers with the opportunity to give back to some of the world’s most vulnerable people and communities.
Through B1G1, businesses link their everyday business activities—whether that’s product sales or sending emails—with financial contributions to vetted, high-impact projects. This makes it possible for small- and medium-sized businesses to make a substantial difference through small, but consistent donations that help solve issues they care about. Or as Masami Sato says, “Even small businesses can change the world in a big way.”
B1G1 is unique in that it gives 100% of businesses’ contributions to the intended projects, ensuring every cent goes to the communities who need support the most.
Today, the B1G1 initiative brings together more than 2,600 businesses from around the world who together have created over 250 million giving impacts globally.
How does Osmond Saint give back?
When our founder, Jay, discovered B1G1 several years ago, she immediately felt connected to its mission, values, and vision. As such, partnering with this impactful organisation and everything it stands for was an easy decision.
When you purchase an Osmond Saint serum, 33% of your payment goes to people and communities in need. By supporting your inner and outer glow with our signature Marine Collagen Hydrating Serum, you’re also putting disadvantaged children through school, supplying people with food and water, planting gardens to sustain villages, and contributing to other meaningful causes within the global B1G1 network.
Small businesses can make a big impact
In today’s world, philanthropy is thankfully growing, but most donations come from individuals and foundations, with less than 5 percent coming from businesses.
Many business owners, whether from start-ups or established businesses, think that giving back requires making large donations. As a result, these businesses may feel they lack the funds to make a meaningful impact.
At Osmond Saint, we hope to be an inspiration to other businesses that no matter the size of your business, it’s possible to give back to others. This is particularly accessible through B1G1, as their model is based on giving regular, small donations, rather than large lump sums.
While we understand that not every business is in a position to give, even small contributions can go a long way in supporting those in need, especially when one knows exactly where the money is going and how it’s being used.
Embrace a giving spirit
Osmond Saint infuses a giving spirit and compassion into everything we do. We make our products with care and love, knowing that they’re not only supporting the physical and mental well-being of our customers, but also worthy projects across the globe.
Know that whenever you purchase a serum from Osmond Saint, you too are playing an important role in helping those less fortunate and, ultimately, changing the world.
