Inspiring the next generation of world-changers.
We are Thankyou
Thankyou is a social enterprise. Our mission is to empower humanity to choose a world without poverty. We do this by committing 100% of the profit from our consumer products to fund sustainable aid and development work around the globe.
We believe that everyone can be an agent for change; those who buy our products and the people all over the world who get access to basic human rights through the profits.
As of March 2018, we’ve given over $5.8 million to empower 785,568 people in need in 20 countries. And we believe this only the beginning...
School Sessions by Thankyou
Our School Sessions explain what a social enterprise is and why we started one. We talk about the realities of business and how we dream up bold campaigns to empower Australians and New Zealanders to change the world through simple choices they make every day.
We encourage young people, as they step into their next chapter, to challenge their thinking, dream big and take action. In these sessions, teachers and students get a behind-the-scenes peek at Thankyou and learn how we approach our work and any challenges we may face with innovation and solutions-focused thinking. Students will be encouraged that if a small group of determined people can work together to change the world, they can too!
