No Small Plan Update
At Thankyou, we don’t think hope is a soft word. We hold onto it like our life depends on it. Since 2020, we’ve seen the mission we are part of helping solve - the end of extreme poverty - go from bad to worse. In that same time period our plan - No Small Plan - took more twists and turns than we’d ever expected – we’ve mapped it for you...
From Little Dreamer to Little Champion
How exciting is it seeing your mini human achieve those baby milestones, like their first smile, rolling over, sitting, crawling, eating solids, walking… and the list goes on! If you’re a first-timer at the parent thing, we’ve put together a little guide for what to expect.
But remember, every bub develops at a different pace, so enjoy the journey and try not to worry!
We think a nappy name should reflect more than just the size and weight of your baby, that’s why our names represent who your baby is and the stage of development they’re in!
Keeping Up With The Burns'
We caught up with Jarryd (our awesome co-founder) and Jess (part of our People & Culture team AND the person who created 3pm squat o’clock) to chat about family, adapting to change and what gets them dancing.
Meet The Flynns
Daniel and Justine (our awesome co-founders!) have been on the Thankyou journey for 9 years now and have managed to achieve some seriously epic stuff (you might wanna read Chapter One if you’re not sure what we’re talking about! It’s been 2 years since their boy Jedediah entered the world, so we sat down with the Flynns to ask them a few questions about life, parenting and their 2 year old trail-blazer...
Thankyou Baby Care - Your Questions Answered
Since the launch last year, we’ve been inundated with really positive feedback and a lot of great questions about our Thankyou baby care range. So I thought I’d create a list of the ones we’re most commonly asked so you can find them in one easy place.
Life-Changing (Literally) Baby Care
As a mama to three girls I calculated that I have changed over 12 thousand nappies day and night in the past few years, and we’re still going! That’s a lot of nappies – and a lot of money. What if simply by using a particular brand you could help babies, pregnant women and mothers in need around the world? Well, you can! Every 103 seconds a mother dies in pregnancy and childbirth. Equally as distressing is that 2.7 million babies die within their first month of life, mostly from preventable issues. Overwhelming. And so sad...
Radical Transparency: Track Your Impact™ Final Field Reports
“But where does the money go?” It’s probably one of the most asked questions in the social enterprise, charity and not for profit sector. And it’s a fair one. At a time where giving rates are on the decline and there’s a growing scepticism around what businesses and charities do with the money they are given, it’s also an important one. Track Your Impact™ is our answer. We built it because we give 100% of profits from our products to our impact partners and we wanted to prove it...
We Stand Tall On The Shoulders Of Giants
We’re about funding sustainable solutions that last. We’re often asked how we choose which projects to fund. Here’s the low down from our Chief Impact Officer, Pete Yao...
Cheffy's Story: This is what determination looks like
If I had to describe Cheffy in three words? Well firstly I’d ask for more words, then I’d settle on ‘determination’ ‘resilience’ and ‘heart’. Why? Because he’s been told ‘no’ more times than he can count or recall. But it never changed his vision or resolve. Let me explain…
We arrived at a school in the Chivi District of rural Zimbabwe. The nation’s flag flew at full mast on the front lawn. The heat was intense, yet three school students came rushing towards us in shirts with their ties done up to the top.
Chapter One, A Year On
Looking back, one year on from launching Chapter One, 2016 was a BIG year. I had always thought 2016 would be epic for Thankyou. The reality of how big it might be hit in December 2015 when I met with someone from the world’s largest publisher of business books...
