It’s a special day today. Not only is it International Carrot Day today (April 4th, Google it. It’s a real holiday) and we’re celebrating all things Carrot today with a virtual party from our home offices.
But we’re also celebrating the official announcement of our new Carrot Impact Fund as our latest commitment to go ALL IN on impact.
We’re officially committing $500,000 to help serve the communities we live, work, and play in to help fuel our giving program for years to come.
Now Be Honest… Why did you really want to become an entrepreneur?
Time? Freedom? Money?
For years, I struggled to answer that question. There was something missing in my past businesses. I couldn’t find the happiness that took it to the next level.
I couldn’t connect with that life-changing moment.
We create businesses for three main reasons:
The problem is we were missing one…
We’re going all in on not just making an income but making a real impact. All in on stepping up as a small business in these times to do what we feel doing business is all about.
For a few years, we’ve had our “Carrot Giving” program where we’ve given 1% of our gross revenue to causes that amplify our Core Values here at Carrot.
Supporting Local Youth Through UVBO
Housing Homeless Female Veterans
Families Across America
It’s been AMAZING!
Seeing the impact it’s made on our communities, our team, our members, and those directly impacted by our gives has inspired us.
Inspired us to not just give when things are going great. But to commit to giving at a larger scale so it’s fully a part of our soul as a company… not just “something we do”.
Head over and check out our official announcement on the Carrot Impact Fund and see ways you can start to make an even greater impact in your own community.
We want to help you make a bigger impact on your life and business!
We want to help create…
A more positive world.
A world where more people genuinely care about others.
A world that celebrates creativity and being open-minded.
A world that is grateful for what we’ve been blessed with — even in hard times.
A world that sets high standards for ourselves and thirsty for self-improvement.
A world where money empowers and uplifts… it doesn’t separate.
A world where transparency is rewarded and honesty is the norm.
A world where companies place customer happiness over profits… and funny thing… you become more profitable because of it.
… a world that’s more fun and doesn’t take itself so seriously.
Announcing the Carrot Impact Fund!
This announcement isn’t about us. It’s not about celebrating Carrot. Yes, we’re excited about those the Impact Fund will help and we’re proud of the hard work it’s taken to get here.
But, it’s really about the part of why we exist.
For us, we’re on a mission to Be A Beacon Of Positivity and Possibility and to create a ripple effect of small businesses that do good while they do great work.
We Want To Challenge You
We hope you’ll take our challenge to join the movement and to start to make a greater impact today.
If you already have a giving program, you rock.
The impact we can all make together will reach MILLIONS of people over the coming years.
Maybe you’ve been waiting for the “perfect” cause or for the day you have “enough” to give. But, what if that perfect day never comes?
If we don’t give our time and money to amazing causes when we don’t have it… we likely won’t do it when we do.
So my challenge for you is to start.
Don’t Forget to Share + Celebrate
We want people to share what they are doing to make an impact.
