Start Giving Today

We teach, inspire, and empower people to give, creating a
happier and more compassionate world 365 days a year.

Our story

Back in 2010, I started this journey with a simple idea: to teach my 3-year-old son how to be kind, compassionate, and happy. We started with just one small, intentional act of giving every day. 365 days later, we changed the world.

Changing the world one give,
one day at a time

Why giving back is important

When you give, you create a ripple effect of positive change in the world. Your acts of giving inspire others to give back too, building stronger and more connected communities. Together, we’re building a world where everyone can prosper and thrive – today and for years to come.

Why giving makes you happy

When you give, you’re not just helping others – you’re also helping yourself. Research shows that small acts of giving increase happiness, physical and mental health, and well-being while decreasing stress, anxiety, and depression.
