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.
