Thankyou: The Social Enterprise Transforming Lives and Shopping

In a world where consumerism often overshadows compassion, Thankyou, an Australian social enterprise, has emerged as a beacon of change. This extraordinary company is not content with merely selling products; it's on a mission to make a meaningful difference in the lives of countless individuals worldwide. Through a diverse range of offerings spanning water, body care, and food, Thankyou channels its proceeds into vital initiatives that support safe water, hygiene, sanitation programs, and food security efforts across sixteen countries.

A Unique Approach to Advocacy

What truly sets Thankyou apart is its innovative approach to advocating for change. Instead of traditional marketing methods, the company harnesses the power of public lobbying through mainstream and social media to influence major supermarket retailers to stock their products. These impactful campaigns have forged partnerships with prominent retailers like 7-Eleven, Coles, and Woolworths, ushering in a new era of socially responsible consumption.

Expanding Horizons

In 2013, Thankyou expanded its offerings to include body care and food products, aligning them with their mission to support hygiene, sanitation, and food security initiatives. This transformative moment also marked the rebranding of Thankyou from "Thankyou Water" to simply "Thankyou." They ignited the Coles and Woolworths Campaign, a digital marketing and social media crusade aimed at Australia's major supermarket chains.

Amplifying the Message

Social media advocacy was amplified through endorsements from celebrities like Chrissie Swan and Jules Lund, as well as support from the Channel 7 program Sunrise. Thankyou even took to the skies, flying helicopters (generously donated) carrying banners over the headquarters of Coles in Melbourne and Woolworths in Sydney, delivering messages of gratitude for their role in "changing the world (if you say yes)."

Awards and Achievements

In recognition of his outstanding contributions, Daniel Flynn was named Victorian Young Australian of the Year in 2014. By 2016, Thankyou had raised a staggering $3.7 million for projects that provided over 190,000 people with access to clean water, extended hygiene and sanitation access to another 300,000 individuals, and funded 19.1 million days' worth of food aid across 17 countries.

Revamped Hand & Body Care

Thankyou's personal care range has recently undergone a stunning transformation, featuring new packaging that not only catches the eye but also reflects their enduring dedication to making a positive impact by introducing a refill system that's a game-changer for the environment. It's designed to enhance circularity, which means your self-care routine can now be as kind to the planet as it is to your skin.

Thankyou's refills come in a sleek, high-value recyclable natural HDPE packaging, which means you can easily refill your Hand & Body Wash and then pour the rest into a Forever Bottle, resulting in less waste, less impact on the planet, and more of that delightful Thankyou self-care experience.
