KindLink is proud to welcome Andreea Groenendijk-Deveau as a Co-Founder and its VP of Communications. She will focus on building our communications and marketing departments both in London and internationally, as well as advise our executive team based on her significant business experience.

 

In the aftermath of the Nepal earthquake in 2015, a group of friends from the technology and non-profit sectors started thinking about how to make sure donors could help rebuild the country through donations and be sure their contribution went to the people in need. We reflected upon and refined our ideas until we created KindLink – a platform that shows donors the impact of their donations through detailed campaign reports and social-media-like coverage and allows charities to showcase their good work more transparently.

Your employees are volunteering for unique charities that spark their interest, but their volunteer hours might be going overlooked. Are your employees communicating their volunteering outside of the office?

In an industry survey, 88 per cent of millennial employees said they feel more loyal to a company that helps them contribute to social and environmental issues. Young workers are willing to receive pay cuts for increased CSR activities, but does philanthropy belong in the office? 

KindLink is excited to announce that we now support over 1,000 charities and nonprofit organizations with our free software, fundraising and impact reporting platform. We are grateful to be able to help these charitable organizations make the world a kinder place within the United Kingdom and internationally. KindLink was founded with the intention of bringing transparency and efficiency to the charity sector, and we will continue to connect businesses and charities through their kind work.

Does your new spring jacket match your sustainable values? Only 6 per cent of procurement leaders claims their supply chains are entirely transparent, according to the Business Continuity Institute, and the garment and textiles industry particularly fails to be transparent in the wake of a fast fashion crisis.

You spend the majority of your waking hours working. As an employee, you should be feeling purposeful at the office or at least have a decadent cup of coffee available.

Stakeholders and customers no longer want to hear your business’s sustainable initiatives. They expect sustainability to be already at the center of your business model.

Recruiters are searching for creative, new talent, and aspiring workers are looking for employers keen on community engagement and sustainable innovations. Millennials are attracted to corporate social responsibility, and CSR is often a key topic during the hiring process.

We are delighted to have been appointed as Trusted Supplier to the NCVO and we look forward to helping all their members - charities and businesses - to showcase and amplify their impact.
