Today is #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to giving. It is a day when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students and retailers all come together to celebrate giving and encourage more, better and smarter giving during the Holiday Season.
Babes in Arms is proud to be part of #GivingTuesday. We have chosen to give back to the community by supporting Good 360, a philanthropic product gateway that connects businesses who have goods with charities who need them. Babes in Arms has gifted fifteen Ergobaby Carriers to Good 360 to support new families in need.
Put simply, Good360 provides the infrastructure to redistribute surplus products to people in need. Good360 redirects products to charities nationwide, who in turn donate them to the local individuals, families and organisations in greatest need. Good360 gives unused merchandise a philanthropic afterlife so that parents who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford a personal baby-carrier, can benefit from the best baby carrier on the market. Equally important is the compound value that Good360 delivers, for every $1 donation received, they distribute $30 worth to the recipients. As a retail business we really appreciate this proposition.
Good360 has been operating in the USA for 30 years, redistributing over US$7bn of product, and is consistently recognised as one of the country’s most efficient charities. Good360 Australia estimates that it will redistribute A$100m worth of product within 3 years. And most importantly, Good360 is able to supply $30 worth of products for every $1 donation, that’s an incredible result.
At Babes in Arms we are always looking for innovative and effective ways to create positive social and environmental impact. We immediately recognised the untapped value and potential in the Good360 concept. The genius of the Good360 system is in its scalable efficiency. We know that our product donation can quickly and securely be delivered to reputable charities nationwide.
Our donation helps Good360 turn Ergobaby carriers into hope after a natural disaster, support during financial hardship, smiles for underprivileged children and comfort for those who are suffering.
Babes in Arms invites you to be part of this celebration. #GivingTuesday will show how the world can do much more with our wallets than just consume.
