Today I’m excited to share my recent podcast with Shari Rudolph, Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Development Officer of Good360, a new partner for Norwex®. Shari shares her passion about what makes this amazing, 37-year-old nonprofit the leader in “product philanthropy and purposeful giving.
Connecting with hundreds of socially responsible companies that are looking to make large-scale donations of goods, this team of just over 50 people ensures that a staggering amount of products are matched with nonprofits throughout the United States and internationally through a construct called “The Good360 Circle of Good.” In fact, in 2020 alone, Good360 distributed more than $700 million in goods to those in need.
The over 90,000 nonprofits that are vetted and registered to receive these goods would often not have been able to access them on their own. Once received, the items are then distributed to those in need. It’s a win-win-win because not only do the items benefit the recipients, they are also diverted from landfills or from otherwise being destroyed. Plus, it’s an extremely efficient and socially responsible way for donor corporations to make a big impact.
I’m so excited that Norwex has partnered with this organization, which has distributed more than $10 billion in needed goods to date, all while valuing and maintaining the dignity and worth of each recipient.
