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 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 Buy 1 Give 1, backed by the idea that companies would make a giving impact with each designated business transaction. Today, the B1G1 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.
I call and the issue dealt with that day and fixed. Matthew Sandford - Aussie Windscreens
We would not be where we are today without your help/advice. Kylie Krinas
Your advice, guidance and assistance with Molonglo Group's transition to Xero has been invaluable over the last 18 months. We have very much appreciated your efforts with both our staff and the staff at Maxim. We have been able to capitalise on the efficiencies that Xero has bought to our Group and we thank you for this.

Excellent at providing early guidance and feedback. They have been especially useful in setting up my new business on Xero and have been very helpful with advice on payroll. They provide preemptive information that is very useful in running a small business. For example recently I was sent a Christmas Closure email which detailed lots of information about closing over the Christmas period and any associated obligations I may have. Klarisa Cengic
