Do One Good Thing

The One Foundation could be the easiest way to help third world countries. The idea is so simple. You don’t have to sign up to any monthly donation or fill in any forms. No, all there is to it is buying One products and 100% of the profits goes to the One Foundation projects. (Check out their website to see how they achieve this at

Ideas for the products come from the main issues that need tackling in poorer countries. One bottled water funds water pumps for clean water, One soap and toilet tissue fund sanitation facilities and One condoms fund HIV care. The most recent products to be added to the family are eggs and vital water (water with yummy fruit juice flavours.) These help toward funding vegetable gardens, seed banks and chicken farms.

Another extremely important issue that needs tackling is the prevention of Malaria, which is spread through mosquito bites. This can easily be prevented with mosquito nets so if you think you have an amazing idea for a product that relates to this issue then get involved with The One Foundation by going to or post your ideas here!

One products are available at most supermarket chains such as the Co op, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Asda. So next time you run out of toilet tissue or soap, think about putting One products in your trolly instead and you could be helping someone else in the world. It's as easy as that!
