i=Change is a platform that enables us to turn every sale into impact and empower women and girls with 100% transparency. This means you, our customers, are able to choose a project that resonates most with you once you have purchased with us. Every time you buy from Otopia, together we make a difference in a community or individual's life.
i=Change makes it simple and powerful for brands to give back. The vision is to turn retail into a force for good, by ensuring every purchase creates change, and helps build the world we all wish to see. i=Change has raised over 6.7 million dollars for a number of organisations, both locally and internationally. Over 250 brands are a part of the community, and 100% of donations are sent to carefully selected projects, with a focus on women and girls’ empowerment and now mitigating climate change.
“At Otopia we believe when women support each other, incredible things happen. It’s important to us that all women feel empowered. We are proud to partner with i=Change and impact many women’s lives.” Jacqui, Vanessa & Cilla, Founders.
The three projects Otopia supports is to change the future of girls, by stopping child marriage through The Hunger Project Australia, save mothers lives by helping prevent maternal deaths with Mao Tao Clinic and finally protecting a woman by providing shelter with Womens Community Shelters. We've chosen these 3 charities, not randomly, but because they resonate with each of us due to our own life experiences.
Whenever you make a purchase with us, you get to choose which of these charities receives your dollar donation to continue their incredible and tireless efforts to protect our most vulnerable people in Australia and worldwide. After that, you're able to track in real-time how your donation helps to raise the total for each cause and learn more about how the funds raised are directly benefiting those who need it most. There is a policy of complete transparency with i=Change which is why we love partnering with them. You can be guaranteed that your donation reaches the charity in full—no deductions or fees are applied.
We are so proud to be able to provide support for those in need through our business, and empower our customers, you, to shop with purpose at Otopia. O and one last thing, when choosing which charity to donate to at checkout, goosebumps and feeling good are totally normal symptoms to have, so no need to be alarmed babe!
Together, we can make change.
