Hello Chasers,

Santa’s sack still has a couple of presents left and this one is an extraordinary book – Chapter One by Daniel Flynn (co-founder of Thankyou)

Thankyou was born in 2008 in response to the World Water Crisis. At that time, over 900 million people didn’t have access to safe drinking water on a daily basis, yet the Australian bottled water industry was worth an estimated $600 million a year.

Daniel Flynn pulled together a group of friends in Melbourne and together turned an idea to launch a line of bottled water that would fund water projects overseas into a reality. In July 2013 they rebranded as Thankyou, complete with two new ranges: food and body care and today, Thankyou has over 40 products available in 5,000 outlets in Australia (including 7-Eleven, Coles and Woolworths).

The idea was to take a more holistic approach to combat poverty, with 100% of their profits funding safe water, food and hygiene and sanitation services worldwide. In the second half of 2016, they launched Thankyou baby, a nappy and baby care range that funds child and maternal health programs around the globe to empower families in need.
