At The Pure Collective venues, every purchase matters. Beyond funding Symbols of Hope's scholarships, a small donation is made, towards creating impact in an area chosen by the customer. Here is a snapshot of some of the impacts created by votes made. Votes that are translated into micro-donations, selected by customers in The Pure Collective hospitality venues over 2018/19. Covid impacted 2020 venues operations significantly but impact selection has recommenced in 2021-2022. There is also other inbuilt impact created by the groups operations and projects on the journey so far.
We have assessed our investment's impact partners across the 17 SDGs to help match with investor preferences. Most investors would already be very familiar with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
For those seeking more information, a summary of each of the 17 goals, please review this booklet and also the indicator list used to by organisations to map and attribute impact.
Additional information explaining the relevance and relationship between the SDGs and investing in the impact required to achieve them can be is available at:

Folo is a free extension for computer browsers that enables anyone to generate donations for causes they care about, just by shopping online. When browsing Google or visiting a store online, Folo highlights the retailers who will donate to causes on your behalf. Every time you make a purchase, the retailer pays a percentage of the sale to your Folo account. This gives you the power to use your Folo balance to support non-profits you care about - at no extra cost to you. Our current beta version has over 3000 users and has generated over $30,000 in donations for 65 charities. Folo users must choose which SDG they wish to support and it provides the perfect educational tool for younger people to learn about the Global Goals and then actively support a organisation working towards achieving them.
Raising awareness for the SDGs and empowering more than 65 different charities and 3000 users
