Since we started in 2012, the over 250 stories in Asia we’ve told have been viewed around 140 million times and inspired our community to take over 2 million actions.
Your donation helps us source, vet and produce stories of good causes across Asia so that they can be seen, heard and supported. You can be sure that your money is creating a positive impact in the world.
Have a question about your donation?
Your donation goes to telling stories. It will be used to cover aspects of our storytelling process – including sourcing, producing, filming, writing, editing, scoring, creating animation, capturing photos, etc.
By funding OBW's storytelling, you create different types of impact for the organisations featured in our stories. It gives them the means to tell the world in a clear and compelling way what they do and whom they serve. It also adds credibility to their work to help them source for funding.
When you donate directly to a cause, you fund their immediate needs, and that’s important. When you make a donation to fund OBW’s storytelling, you create awareness for the good work of underserved organisations. With awareness, you give them power to inspire more people to take action, so that these deserving organisations get the help they need.
An OBW story translates to different types of impact for the organisation as there are many ways our story subjects have used their OBW stories to generate more impact for themselves. The impact of a story once it’s told goes a long way.
No, we are not commissioned or paid by the organisations whose stories we tell. We have editorial discretion to decide which organisations we choose to feature in our stories.
We do however work with partners whose values are aligned to our mission. These partnerships may involve partial or full funding of production costs to help us manage our costs as a non-profit. Where this is the case, it will be stated clearly to the public. At all times, Our Better World maintains full editorial control and ensures the due processes are followed.
Organisations that are interested to donate to our work can write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To ensure proper tracking of donations and accountability of the funds, we are not able to accept donations made in cash or cheque. Donations can only be made on our site.
You can manage your monthly donations via your account settings. If you do not have an account with us, you can get in touch with us at email@example.com.
