Vanguard Laundry is always looking for ways to increase our impact. Towards the end of 2021, we became a proud partner of Hello Good World to help social enterprise expand their reach and sales and in turn their impact.
“As larger corporations look to for ways to increase their CSR, gifting is a perfect opportunity to switch2good to make a profound difference and spread awareness of the work and impact of each of the business.” said Rachel Whitworth, founder Hello Good World.
Hello Good World, is an online marketplace for the conscious consumer. They make it really easy to shop for brands that make a positive impact putting people and planet at the forefront of their decisions.
Christmas is always a great opportunity to acknowledge the people and teams outside of our organisation that have been part of our growth. With the help of Hello Good World, our corporate gifting went from basic gifts to extraordinary impact and the recipients loved them too.
Hanna Ebling, CEO of Sefa, commented on her gift, “After our first year of working together, Vanguard Laundry was so kind to offer me a purpose-aligned gift voucher from Hello Good World alongside an amazing Christmas box of socially minded goodies that showcased the diversity of our social businesses here in Australia. I used the voucher to buy a banksia candlelight to give to my dad in Germany, and he was thrilled to receive such a beautiful gift with very local, environmental, and also social roots. This is the one stop shop for you to find thoughtful gifts for your loved ones”.
In December 2021 alone, Christmas with heart allowed us to have a minimum social value of $6168 going towards projects in local and overseas projects in education, waste reduction, employment, food, sanitation, and mental health prevention.
Vanguard Laundry are passionate about helping social enterprise and the whole sector thrive. You’ll find our Social Impact Manager Harry Sillett, representing South West Queensland as the Regional Champion for the Queensland Social Enterprise Council Ltd.
During the December 2021 gifting, we were able to increase the sales of 9 unique social enterprise and expanding their reach to 35 industry partners.
