Social Champ Joins the Pledge 1% Movement and Pledges to Donate 1% of Time and Product to the Community

Today we joined Pledge 1%, a global movement to create a new normal for companies of all sizes and stages to positively impact their business. Social Champ is joining over 12,000 companies worldwide who have committed to Pledge 1% of either their product, profit, equity, and staff time to a charity of their choosing. Social Champ is proud to announce its commitment to donate 1% of Time and Product to a wide range of charity partners.

Co-founder and CEO Sameer Ahmed Khan explains what this partnership means to him and how Social Champ is making a change in the community.

“We offer 50% off for life on all of their plans to all the registered non-profits so they can scale their marketing efforts on social media. In times of pandemic, small and medium-size businesses who couldn’t afford the product were offered a free subscription for a limited time so they can survive.”

Sameer Ahmed Khan also dedicates time to giving back to society in terms of free one-on-one coaching, social media training, and their startup journey to inspire new entrepreneurs. The talks have been delivered by Nokia, Microsoft, Facebook, WordPress Community, Tedx, IEEE, and many others.

“A lot of mentors helped us to where we are today. We find it a responsibility and an honor to give back to the ecosystem by helping startups and university students”, says Sameer Ahmed Khan. Sameer, with his team at Social Champ, regularly conducts digital marketing workshops for new startups. Sameer continues, “The mentors from The Nest IO incubator in Karachi, Pakistan, and professors from University of Karachi, have equally helped us to shape a better founder, citizen and a human being.”

Social Champ is proud to join the Pledge 1% community and encourages other companies to take the pledge and leverage their business as a force for good.
