Pledge 1 PERCENT

Last year at Southstart we met with Mark Reading who introduced us to the concept of Pledge 1%.

Pledge 1% is a global movement that inspires, educates, and empowers entrepreneurs, companies, and employees to be a force for good. As a business, you can pledge either 1% of your time, profit, equity or product to a cause of your choice. We are always looking for positive ways to give back and we love the concept of pledging 1% of our total time back to the community.

How it started

Watch our chat with Mark Reading from Pledge 1% at SouthStart to see how it started.

Over the next year, we are aiming to pledge 250 hours amongst the amazing 12 humans in the DN Team. We have decided we would like to put this time into projects that are close to our hearts and help extend our partners budget and scope. It’s a fantastic way for the team to feel the impact of the work they do and help spread the love!
