Introducing tip4good

tip4good is a state-of-the-art payments platform that grants anyone who buys clothing—and that would be all of us—the opportunity to make a difference in the welfare of apparel workers all over the world by impacting the item they care about most: the bottom line—their wages.

tip4good harnesses the power of technology and the goodwill and compassion of consumers. It allows you to pay a gratuity to the workers at the factory where the clothing you have just purchased was assembled.


How it Works

A fashion brand instructs its eligible factories to place a tip4good tag on each of its garments, which link them to the plant where they were assembled. The tip4good tag allows the consumer who buys the garment to send a tip to the workers that assembled the item (using a smart phone app, a web page, or regular mail). It does not matter where or when the item was purchased, the gratuity will reach them.


Benefits

tip4good generates a win-win-win-win scenario for all the parties involved -

1. The factory worker supplements her income and increases her wellbeing through additional resources to fulfill her most pressing needs (nutrition, healthcare, childcare, education, investment, etc.) as she sees fit.

2. The factory owner increases employee retention and improves workers’ morale.

3. The fashion brand burnishes its sustainable credentials and corporate social responsibility portfolio, as well as getting a chance to put its charitable foundation funds to optimal use without the need to structure or administer smaller programs with a reduced scope of impact.

4. The tip4good customer satiates her compassion and altruistic desire to see her fashion purchase accomplish something tangibly beneficial for the workers who made the item and acquires the opportunity to earn rewards in retribution for her generosity.

Where We Stand Now

tip4good wants to put our concept to the test. We must provide evidence of strong support to compel brands and partners to join us to make this a reality in complete confidence that participating will benefit everyone involved.

In order to do this we will soon be launching a crowdfunding campaign.


How You Can Help

1. Join our mailing list and become part of the launch platform of tip4good supporters by sharing and promoting this site and our upcoming crowdfunding campaign.

2. PARTICIPATE IN OUR CROWDFUND AND DONATE, NO MATTER HOW SMALL THE AMOUNT. EVEN A TOKEN CONTRIBUTION IS TREMENDOUSLY HELPFUL – THE NUMBER OF BACKERS IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT THAN ABSOLUTE CONTRIBUTION AMOUNTS.

WHEN WE PROVE THIS IS SOMETHING LOTS OF PEOPLE WANT, BRANDS WILL ALSO WANT TO PARTICIPATE!
