It’s our aim to empower our impact partners to serve vulnerable communities with sustainable solutions, and to also offer you transparency and connect you with the impact you’re making with your Thankyou purchase.
We wait until the end of the year (when we know exactly how much we have to give) and then commit funds to our project partners. So we’re committing and giving at the same time.
Like any other company, we need to allow time for auditors to review the year’s financials. When the review is complete, we’ll then commit the funds. Based on this, it may take up to 17 months for us to connect you with your impact – depending on the timing of your product purchase and track. That’s why it’s important to sign up, so you can get a notification once your product is assigned to an impact project.
This process makes it easier for our partners on the field, who are serving vulnerable communities to plan more strategically to achieve effective and sustainable outcomes - that’s a win in our book.
