Changing the world is in your hands

every moment each day 365 days a year

We are on a mission to teach, inspire,
and empower
every person
to give every day

We envision a world where giving is a way of life 365 days a year, resulting in a happier, more compassionate world that is connected and united.

How it all started

365give founder, Jacqueline Way, wanted to teach her son Nic how to be a kind, compassionate, and happy human being. That’s why, on Nic’s 3rd birthday, they decided to give back to the world – every day – for 365 days.

Since then, Jacqueline’s parenting project has grown into a global movement that has touched the lives of millions and makes a difference 365 days a year.

They started with a simple daily giving list. Just one give, one day at a time. Their small acts of giving had to be easy and close to home. They made a plan that included giving to everything – giving to animals, giving to people, and giving to the planet.

As they incorporated this new daily habit into their lives, they learned that every positive action created a ripple effect of positive reactions. Giving back made everything around them happier, and they were happier too!

Since then, Jacqueline’s parenting project has grown into a global movement that has touched the lives of millions and makes a difference 365 days a year. One person can make a difference when we all do it.

At 365give, we may never truly grasp the full extent of our impact or the wide range of people we’ve reached. However, what we do know is that millions of individuals – spanning all ages and countries all around the globe – have been moved to action by our mission and continue to join our growing community 365 days a year.

But we don’t do this alone, and we are deeply grateful for the dedicated board members, passionate volunteers, and trusted educators and advisors who have been changing the world with us, every step of the way.

Giving is so simple, anyone can do it! We know that every individual has the power to make a difference and contribute to this wave of positive impact.

Join us today because we know one person can make a difference!

How we do it

If we want to overcome the world’s greatest challenges, we all need to take action. That’s a daunting thought! The good news is that big things start with small steps. Our programs are built around a framework that “TIE”s it all together for you.

Teach

  • Give other people ideas they may not have considered
  • Model positive behaviour for everyone
  • Show others how happy you become when you give
  • Demonstrate the impact of ordinary, everyday goodness

Inspire

  • Create a culture of kindness and generosity
  • Encourage others to become everyday heroes like you
  • Forge strong bonds with your community
  • Feel good! (because inspiration is giving, too)

Empower

  • Make giving possible for everyone around the world
  • Put the power of change into everyone’s hands
  • Celebrate cultural difference and similarities
  • Become a powerful force for good

Want to be a powerful force for good? You don’t have to be a superhero or wear a red cape. You don’t even need a big bank account. All it takes is one small act of giving, one day at a time.

We would love to help you start your daily giving habit today!
