Why we do what we do

Why we do what we do


The rapid growth of the world’s population throughout the 20th century was seen as a sign of post-war peace and prosperity.

But at what cost?

Only recently have we realised that our planet is incapable of sustaining present demands on its resources in the long-term; and unfortunately, we have been all too slow to develop solutions that will steer us away from environmental and humanitarian disaster. 

All is not lost

Clever people all over the world are innovating to deliver smart alternatives, particularly in the fields of agriculture and energy, in an attempt to steer us away from their destructive impact on not only the environment, but the local communities that are often co-opted into the means of production. 

Mindless consumption is taking us down a path that could result in the irrevocable degradation of our environment, threatening the existence of countless species, and displacing millions of people worldwide. Widespread poverty and paralysed development in areas whose people are no longer able to sustain themselves by their own means, has fuelled desperation and undermines efforts to create sustainable solutions.

The power of the collective

We know that a majority of people are aware of the status quo. We also believe that the majority of people want things to change too, but often feel powerless to do anything by themselves.

We can’t change the world on our own, but we can sure as hell try to help those who are making a difference by using our platform to support them in their work and do some good.

Anybody who uses the OK, Can! Platform is contributing to our effort of raising funds for good causes, across four key areas:

  1. Protecting the environment
  2. Global sustainability
  3. Vulnerable communities
  4. Animal welfare

We donate 1% of our net income to charities

Throughout the year, we raise awareness of key issues and organisations that deserve a spotlight. Then, at the end of the year, we’ll ask our members to vote for a selection of organisations who they would like us to donate our fundraising to. 

And that’s it. We help people to earn money and amplify fundraising efforts for important causes.
