thankyou.

Almost a billion people live in extreme poverty, while six billion people don’t. We reckon the six billion of us could work together to put an end to global poverty, for good.

The future is here. thankyou. is a social enterprise established over 6 years ago by and RMIT graduate and 2014 Victorian Young Australian of the Year , Daniel Flynn, who could see there was a need to connect the real world and the business world. He used technology and social media to create momentum around thankyou. so he could realise his business/social enterprise goals. It’s an ethical business which is actually ethical and is using business practices which strongly combine social media strategies with business plans and models which in turn fund social enterprise projects. The business profits are used 100% for social justice .

“Six and a half years on, Thankyou. has raised $2.5 million for projects that have given 150,000 people access to water, another 190,000 access to hygiene and sanitation, as well as funding more than 12.1 million days worth of food aid, across 16 countries.”

Social media have been used to rally support, get peer review, feedback and then prove there is potential in the business idea. Then there has been all the hard work of getting products into place, a business plan, videos, media appearances. This new business model is being crowd driven. I heard about it on Instagram. You cannot help but be impressed and you cannot help but wish that this is how technology, the internet and social media will work. We all have access to devices and thankyou. is making use of the popular platforms to build a business and then use it to help solve some of the world’s problems and inequities. It started with water. I ought to be a basic human right that everyone has access to potable water. What made me happy is that Daniel Flynn used the inquiry approach to learning in order to create his business and make it real :

“What if we could turn bottled water into getting clean water, and make it convenient for people who actually need it?” Business Insider

Technology has made this business model possible so that something like this can occur in 2016. RMIT stmulated the thinking in Daniel by what they chose to put in their course. This is educating for the 21st century and Daniel Flynn is showing us what is possible when someone has access to the sorts of educational experiences he had and then the world we live in where we are all connected.

thankyou.Thankyou is a social enterprise. We believe we can end global poverty in this lifetime, together. That’s why we give 100% of the profits from our awesome products to helping people in need.
