Beyond our ethical products, business practices and income opportunity, another wonderful thing happens when you purchase and use Miessence products!
You enable the Miessence Foundation to directly impact many lives where help is most needed.
Money goes directly to actual people and projects related to: generating incomes for those in poverty, nutrition for starving and health deficient communities, environmental projects with local work generated where both the environment and communities are struggling for survival and finally, where funded education provides life-changing opportunities for young and old, their families and community.
B1G1 (Buy1GIVE1) was founded in 2007 when a group of business owners like you realised it was too difficult to give back effectively while running their own businesses.
They believed that if giving was made simple, easy and truly impactful, every business would want to give and make a difference. Here at Miessence loved how they imagined this new world:
Imagine if every time you had a meal, a hungry child received a meal... or imagine if every time you had a cup of coffee, someone received access to life-saving water... or imagine if every time you bought a book, a tree got planted...
Today, B1G1 is headquartered in Singapore, working with nearly 1,000 businesses from more than 20 countries. BUSINESS FOR GOOD members have created over 30 million micro-giving impacts.
This is another aspect to the Miessence vision of a thriving world through our connection to one another.

We are proud to be a Lifetime Partner with B1G1 an international organisation that makes it possible for us to make a real and measureable impact on environmental, humanitarian and educational projects across the globe.
We invite you to share this journey with us.
Each week you will see the map and the projects that you, through the purchase of Miessence products, have made a real difference to this week. You can then share those updates with your family, friends and customers so that you deepen the connections you’re making.
As well as sharing in this journey with us, we’ll be giving opportunities for some of our members to select key projects through the year.
Partnering in this way with B1G1 allows us to expand our reach and personally touch so many more lives in an effective, caring and highly impactful way.
The Miessence Foundation is just one of the ways Miessence makes a difference in improving the welfare of people and the environment around us.

Miessence Foundation Project Highlight
New Hope Cambodia
Miessence will be donating 50% of its weekly donations to New Hope Cambodia, over the coming months.
The fate of Cambodia shocked the world when the radical communist Khmer Rouge, under its leader Pol Pot, seized power in 1975 after years of guerrilla warfare. The Khmer Rouge revolution turned Cambodia into grisly killing fields, as the Pol Pot regime murdered or starved to death an estimated 1.7 million Cambodians over the following 3 years.
The focus of New Hope is 'free education for all' as the founder's recognition of the vital role education plays in helping break the cycle of poverty.
New Hope Cambodia's activities and programs address the daily issues facing families in crisis situations and, at the same time, find ways to work toward a better future.
New Hope provides support through several programs:
- Educates more than 1000 students daily
- Treats up to one hundred patients each day
- Conducts regular assessments of individual family situations
- Provides emergency and disaster relief support for families in tragic situations.
- Operates a traditional Khmer Training Restaurant and tourist business
