HamForGood is a HAMY.LABS initiative where 20% of all proceeds are given to causes that better the world.

how it works

  • HamForGood applies to all HAMY LABS projects
  • HamForGood gives 20% of project profits to select causes
  • These 20% of profits will be split with 10 / 20% going to the cause the project backs, if it backs one. The remaining funds will go to a discretionary fund to be distributed among HamForGood causes. If no cause is specified, all 20% will go to the discretionary fund.
  • This will apply to all current and previous HAMY LABS and HamForGood projects starting 2020.07.13.

An example:

Say a shirt is sold from my shop for $30 and total costs were $20. This leaves us with $10 of profit. So we take 20% of that profit ($2) for HamForGood. Let’s say this project backs the climatechange cause. In that case, $1 would go to organizations fighting climate change (as listed next to the climatechange cause in the docs linked below) and the other $1 would be distributed among other causes like socialjustice or publichealth.

why 20%?

I created HamForGood as a framework / template for helping the world through a medium I enjoy - building projects. My hope is to keep it simple, sustainable, and impactful.
