Stories of Good

Retail for Good

RETAIL THERAPY - BUY 1 AND HELP 1

You might have found yourself glued to the screen on Singles’ Day to cart out the best deals or checking out a new mall or store together with friends.

Or perhaps even wondered where you could buy merchandise that supports a social cause for yourself or as gifts to your friends and loved ones.

With the retail industry being such an integral part of our lives, how can businesses create opportunities for their customers to give back, and where can consumers find a collated listing of such merchandise?

In the second of several collaborative initiatives, we are launching Retail for Good, a nationwide movement/ initiative to bring together various partners and stakeholders in the retail and e-commerce space to make doing good a part of daily encounters.


RETAIL FOR GOOD AIMS TO :

-Enable retailers to create sustained opportunities for consumers to give back 

-Build a collective listing of social initiatives 

-Amplify such initiatives by connecting and strengthening relationships with customers, employees, and other business partners through doing good together
