How it all started
Givtz Back is born from a love for music, the wish to make worship a lifestyle and a desire to spend 90% of my income to give orphan girls a hope and a future.
Learn to do good, to be fair, and to help the poor, the fatherless, and widows. - Isaiah 1:17
A couple of years back, walking in the city of London after a business conference, my friends and I were discussing what we learned and what our desires were for our businesses.
At that point in time I was working as a self-employed contractor in IT, which was great for the money but didn't fulfil me at all. I remember exactly where we were walking when I told one of my friends that I wanted to help 1000 orphan girls. A desire I never knew I had before that moment. Where did this come from?
Around the same time I attended another seminar - yes I am a bit of a learning freak - where the speaker told a story about how he ended up with a lifestyle of giving away 90% of his income and living from the remainder. This clicked with me immediately and another desire was rooted in my heart.
Step by step I started supporting more and more orphan girls over the last couple of years but I was also realizing it was going very slow. And I knew my IT contractor business would not be able to provide enough funds to realize my goals.
A lot of soul searching, many business seminars, lots of different training programs and business concepts later, I finally realized that I needed to find a concept where I was not trying to come up with the finances to help 1000 orphan girls all on my own.
The result: Givtz
So I finally put 1 and 1 (and 1 and 1…) together, my love for music, inspiring quotes, nice shoes, cool shirts, trendy home decor and the wish to make enough money to be able to give away 90% to give 1000 orphan girls a future …… and I came up with the idea for Givtz Back.
For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.- Jeremiah 29:11
