My Journey North

Now more than 2 years since I set out on my journey north we begin to turn our Givey Goggles to the West Coast of the USA in pursuit of a partnership with one of the worlds largest businesses to take Givey to global scale to achieve the cultural shift we are seeking in making giving part of all of our daily lives, I consider the North's role in our global Strategy.

Is Giving Good for You?

Whilst many people think they will give out of their surplus once they are content, I believe that giving is a key to reaching that elusive state of contentment.
