Givemark is a Bookmark with a Mission!
It is a bookmark that doubles as….
- Food for those in hunger
- Safe drinking water
- Cleaner Environment
Givemark is a project that begins with bookmarks. It is all born out of a feeling, an experience. A Lot of people among us read books, and bookmarks aren’t something out the world! It is a time when sometimes, we think upon the suffering and problems in the world but we aren’t able to do anything to help, even though we want to.
Givemark is a product whose 50% of the market price goes to charity, to a cause of your choice.
We currently plan for these Three causes:
One Day’s Wages (ODW) is a grassroots movement of people, stories, and actions to alleviate extreme global poverty. ODW promotes awareness, invites simple giving, and supports sustainable relief through partnerships, especially with smaller organizations in developing regions.
charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. Founded in 2006, it has helped fund 6,611 projects in 20 countries, benefiting over 2,545,000 people.
The Climate Reality Project, founded and chaired by former Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore, is dedicated to unleashing a global cultural movement demanding action on the climate crisis. Despite overwhelming international scientific consensus on climate change, the global community still lacks the resolve to implement meaningful solutions. The Climate Reality Project exists to forge an unwavering bedrock of impassioned support necessary for urgent action.
What we Need?
This project involves a lot of work like designing, printing, trimming, distribution, sales and accounting and managing the whole thing.
We have priced ‘GIVEMARK’ in such a way that it will support teh cause as well as pay for another ‘GM’. The profit is the capital for production.
The Printing and making these GMs is not very easy, so we plan to design and give the printing job to a reputed company to make them, all this in order to make sure quality is ensured and there are no big risks.
The Cost of Batch #1 Production of 3000 GM’s of each cause comes around 750 USD including shipping and other charges like local taxes etc.
But then there is another big issue, and that is negotiating with people to sell these GMs and Marketing costs.
Plus there needs to be somebody to handle this all and there comes the Administrative and Handling expenses.
This Totals to around 800$.
So, The Can’t-Do-Without Budget is
It’s a Project to help and constantly help motivate people to support these three anc causes and more. 50% goes to charity and the rest is used as capital to design and new products as well as these GMs.
Water, Environment, Hunger. Let’s Do it Together!
