“A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new glorious morn”

Inspired by the classic (and catchy) carol, we chose ‘The Thrill of Hope’ as the theme of our end-of-year celebration. We gathered, reflected, laughed and most importantly celebrated the team and partners committed to ending global poverty.

You're part of that team too, so we thought we'd reminisce together...



The thrill of being able to give people hope.

There’s a particular type of joy that comes when you help someone you may never meet. The thrill of knowing someone on the other side of the world is empowered, because of you. Is there anything else like it?

This year (and for the past 10 years) we’ve seen REAL change in communities. 785,568 lives changed isn’t just a number to us, it’s REAL people with REAL stories that are so worthy of being heard and shared.

We made the trip over to Bangladesh earlier in the year where our team met Ashish, a passionate project partner working on the ground to end the injustice of global poverty by empowering women.

We couldn’t have done this year without YOU, our customers. You’ve backed us time and time again.

So here’s to you! Our faves, ultimate cheerleaders and world changers! We’re thrilled to be changing the world with you.
