Playgrounds and Logistics…
At some of our recent seminars, I have been telling our guests about the awesome organisation we have been partnering with, called B1G1 (Buy One Give One)
I was really lucky to be able to go on the B1G1 Tour early in 2013 to visit some of the charities we have been supporting. And Yes, everyone paid their own way to go on the Tour 🙂
This video shows just one day of the tour (we were there for a week). Really life changing stuff, for those in need, and for us!
Rob: If you’re watching this video and you’re a B1G1 member get on the tour and it’s just life changing…
If you could hear the noise in the background that’s 400 children here at one of the schools at Charles green run and what we’re doing is building the playground over there. And it’s going to be fun..
The volume of squeals from the delight from the kids…
The fact that we have the whole village here all helping to build for their kids it’s just a clincher.
Rob: Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! I love Cambodia, I love the people, and I want to get home and double the size of my business so I can give more and build more playgrounds.
Thanks to B1G1 for letting me be a part of this project and it’s an absolute pleasure, something that I will never forget.

The tour was really ‘full on’ as we visited a couple of charities each day and spent the evenings with charity staff discussing their work.
You might hear me say in the video I wanted to get back home and grow my business, so we could build more playgrounds. Well……. 4 weeks after the tour, with the support of our wonderful clients at Logistics Bureau, we funded another play ground in Cambodia. Good Job ! (This became a ‘catch cry’ during the building, initiated by B1G1 Chairman Paul Dunn)
Well, kids in rural areas in Cambodia are often discouraged from attending School. Parents sometimes prefer them to stay at home and work… or quite simply it is a long and tiring trek every day to school in the heat.
A playground provides a ‘magnet’ for the kids to want to come to and stay at School!
