Goodcompany started off as Karma Currency back in 2007, with a focus on charitable giving. In 2011, the organization transformed into Goodcompany when it added the volunteering element - closing the circle to connect good doers of all shapes and sizes.
To date, Goodcompany’s impact has been significant - over 30,000 good doers have donated some 154,581 hours and over $4 million towards making a difference to Australia and the rest of the world. Among hundreds of causes, the organization has sponsored children in need, provided emergency aid relief, supported important medical research and campaigned for animal rights.
Goodcompany itself is in good company - the land Down Under is a melting pot of positive action in recent years. From inspirational dolls to laundromats on wheels, the organization joins a host of positive initiatives that started in Australia and grew to inspire the world.
