Goods 4 Good – Ethical Sustainable Gifts Australia
“Every time you spend money, you’re casting a vote for the kind of world you want.”
– Anna Lappé.
Ethical sustainable gifts is only the start of what a Social Enterprise is. My name is Nandeeta Maharaj and I am a mum of 3 – two are humans and the third one is a very adorable dog named Coco who thinks she is human. My last role in the food insecurity space inspired me to create Goods 4 Good.
In that role, I learnt what a difference just one Social Enterprise could make in the lives of so many people. I experienced the full chain of events from sourcing ingredients, amassing thousands of volunteers across Australia to pack meals, packing millions of meals in a shipping container and sending it off to countries where people are living in extreme poverty.
This was followed by a trip to those countries and working with local NGOs to get the meals to those who needed it most mainly through school programmes where children were encouraged to attend – a meal for an education thus giving them a chance to break out of the cycle of poverty.
When this role ended, it was time to start something new that was as fulfilling. With so many causes needing our attention, working with Social Enterprises that help these causes presented as the best place to start. All the products on Goods 4 Good are Ethical Sustainable Gifts from Social Enterprises in Australia. I hope you get as much joy from buying from the amazing Social Enterprises on this platform as I get from working with them.
The world will say to you, ‘What are you going to do?’ Do not be afraid to say, ‘I know I can’t do everything, but I can do something.’
