Giving back and paying it forward
These are qualities that we draw on in our everyday lives. They are qualities that we seek in our connections, both in business and privately. They are qualities that brought the founders of ShipSavy together, first as friends, then as business partners.
From inception, one of our non-negotiables as we built our platform, was to ensure that we had the procedures and vehicles in place from the outset, to enable the ShipSavy team to give back in any way we could. Whether it was giving our time, mentoring or imparting knowledge or giving financially.
As John D. Rockefeller Jr quoted, �Charity is injurious, unless it helps the recipient to become independent of it.�
These words inspire us at ShipSavy to help our chosen charity, The John Fawcett Foundation, bring independence to people of all ages by providing life changing, free cataract surgeries, and restoring their sight. This incredible gift of sight not only gives hope and independence to the individual, but it also frees other family and community members from having to provide constant care.
All Co-Founders have actively participated in the incredible clinics provided totally free of charge to the local community members of all ages, religions, and ethnicities.
We are enormously proud to be associated with the Pledge 1% movement and have taken the pledge to give 1% of all ShipSavy Subscriptions profits to the JFF.
Please see more about Pledge 1% and the JFF, further down the page.
