World Gratitude Day 2017

9,500 Reasons to Celebrate World Gratitude Day

21/09/2017

Today is World Gratitude Day, a day to show appreciation for all things, big and small.

We have a lot to be thankful for at In Kind Direct. For 20 years we have worked with some incredible not-for-profit organisations and companies to help ensure that everyone has access to life's essentials and that no usable product goes to waste. So far, over 9,500 organisations and hundreds of thousands of people have contributed to making our vision a reality.

Though we are truly thankful for everyone's support, there's still a long way to go. Homelessness is on the rise and our report earlier this year found that funds are so tight, some families are now having to choose between buying food and hygiene products. We can't be complacent. In fact, we're more determined than ever to talk about our work and encourage more companies to donate product for social good. It's important to show manufacturers and retailers the significant impact their donation of surplus usable product can make. 

We're confident that as our network grows and more and more people have access to everyday essentials, we can make a significant step towards boosting people's self-esteem, self-confidence and ultimately their ability to contribute to society through product donation. 

We want to say a big thank you to everyone who has contributed, and continues to contribute, towards our work. With your support, we can help more people gain access to everyday essentials.
