We are so excited about the interest we have seen in our offering so far!
A question I’ve gotten from some individuals who are still considering investing is; "I love what Care2 is doing and can see the impact on the world, but how will I make my money back?"
Care2 is among a group of pioneering companies proving it's possible to make money while making the world a better place. We use business as a force for good.
We've all seen the destruction that happens when businesses pursue profits blindly using old models. Instead, imagine a new model, where the actual product of the company is "doing good" (e.g. Care2), so the company generates profits by doing good.. and then reinvests those profits to do even more good. I call that an "engine for good".
Make money and do good - the two can, and should(!!), go hand in hand. That's how we transform the economy, and the world.
Can that success translate into financial gain for investors? Absolutely. There are a growing number of "socially responsible" companies that have done just that.
For example, Annies Homegrown, Burt’s Bees, Honest Tea, Method, Seventh Generation, and The Body Shop all started with a single person and a dream, had models with deep socially responsible business practices, and each generated considerable returns for investors when the company was acquired by a larger corporation. Some have even had an IPO (Initial Public Offering), such as online retailer, Etsy.
It's been our goal since Day 1 to provide a strong financial return to our shareholders. We're now at a size and growth rate that is closer than ever to achieving that goal, and we hope you will join us!
