Thankyou Group raises $1 million and thanks pubs
By Clyde Mooney – editor Australian Hotelier
Australian social enterprise Thankyou Group has recently announced a milestone of $1 million raised to help people in need, and lauds the community-mindedness of Australian pubs.
Established in 2008 to help combat the world’s water crisis, Thankyou Group produces a range of bottled water and body-care products to help fund water, food and health initiatives in developing nations.
Products are distributed Australia-wide, and to date the Group has provided nearly 80,000 people with safe water solutions across eleven countries.
Speaking to TheShout, managing director Daniel Flynn says their core values are naturally aligned with the hospitality industry.
"We think Thankyou is a great fit for Australian pubs,” proclaimed Flynn.
“Pubs are known to be great engagers of the community – which is exactly what we're about at Thankyou Group.
"Through partnering with Australian pubs, we can see the possibility of increasing our impact in developing nations dramatically, as more and more Australians hear about Thankyou and decide to 'make the switch' in the brand of bottled water they buy."
