When it comes to buying gifts for people online, you’re never going to be short of options. But what if you wanted that gift to mean a little more, for it to contribute to a cause? Well, thanks to the latest offering from CSR management tool forgood, that’s now a little easier.
Open for the month of July, the forgood pop-up store includes everything from clothing and toys to jewellery and art. And, according to a press release sent to Engage Me, every sale generates income for a cause, helping to build long-term sustainability, create jobs, support skills development and empower communities.
“With the forgood Pop-Up Store we wanted to create something truly unique, something that would allow customers to buy products with purpose in a way that was easy to do and would directly support causes on the ground,” says Katherine Robertson, head of e-commerce at forgood. “The Pop-Up Store is really an extension of the work we do at forgood – it aims to bring good ideas and great causes together in a way that creates awareness and promotes sustainability.”
Forgood’s online platform has more than 1 300 different opportunities and 500 accredited social causes for people to choose from. The Pop-Up Store brings the same care to its curation. “A lot of effort has gone into not only curating the products but also the variety of causes being supported”.
We want the Pop-Up Store to be a place where everyone, from animal lovers and environmental champions to people who have a passion for youth and community development, can come together and purchase beautiful products…with purpose,” says Robertson.
The Smile Foundation, Dogtown SA, Jewels of Hope, and the Kainav Conservation Foundation, are just a few of the registered causes that will benefit from every purchase.
