Dear
humanity,

We spend $63 trillion each year on consumer products and services

There is a $2.5 trillion funding gap to end extreme poverty*

*per annum until 2030

To change the world, we must change the system.


We live in a world of extremes. We exist to bridge two of them. Right now, there are approximately 736 million people stuck in extreme poverty1. With many dying daily, simply because they lack access to basics for their health, education and living standards. The funding gap to end extreme poverty by 2030 is estimated at US$2.5 trillion dollars a year2.

Meanwhile, consumer spending totals around US$63 trillion a year3.

This injustice is fed by a broken system. We believe that to change the world, we must change this system. Remake it.
We see a world where not one person lives in extreme poverty. 

Our mission; amplifying impactful change-makers to better serve people living in extreme poverty by redistributing wealth from consumer spending. And we need your help.

Choose Thankyou.
Spread the word.

Our story

How our history has shaped our today and our future

Our story

We are one chapter into a story that we believe will change the course of history. This is a story about people and a simple idea. 

An idea born from the duality of our world: extreme poverty and extreme consumerism. An idea that flips the global capitalist model on its head - empowering people who care, to use the money they’re already spending on products, to help end global poverty. 

How is it possible? People.

We started in 2008 as a few co-founders and grew into a movement of millions of people taking small steps to create big change. That’s millions of moments, of small steps, where people chose to back Thankyou. Moments like the time our community petitioned Australia’s two largest supermarkets to stock Thankyou products (they said yes!). When people like you helped us beat our $1.2million (AUD) fundraising target through a pay-what-you-want book called Chapter One to fund our future growth. Like when we didn’t get stickers on products in time, and 300 amazing people volunteered their time to do it with us. 

History has taught us many things. The power of people, the importance of a bold vision and how individual small actions create huge impact. Everyone’s actions matter. We have faith in the collective good and power of humanity to achieve the impossible. 

There are many chapters left to write. Write with us.
