About Giving Stories

A Giving Story is a key feature on B1G1 that helps you embed giving into your business. You create a story that links your business activity with an impact.

For example:  When I send an email, I give one day of access to clean water.

You can create as many giving stories as you wish! Some of our members have found a multitude of creative ways to embed giving into their business.
