About B1G1

B1G1 runs a business movement that enables businesses to embed giving into their everyday activities - and guarantees that 100% of their giving goes to the high-impact global projects of their choice.

Small business can change the world in a big way.

In 2007, a group of small-business owners had an idea. 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 deal of work later, they were able to launch the systems and processes necessary to make it work. Their dream is now creating 100’s of millions of impacts in our world.

The initiative was originally called Buy 1 Give 1, backed by the idea that companies would make a giving impact with each designated business transaction. Today, the BIG1 initiative has more than 2,100 businesses from around the world—each making significant impacts every day.

B1G1 is a social enterprise and non-profit organization with a mission to create a world full of giving. Unlike conventional giving models, B1G1 helps small and medium-sized businesses achieve more social impact by embedding giving activities into everyday business operations and creating unique giving stories. Every business transaction (and as a result, the business’ day-to-day activity) can impact lives for as little as just one cent.
