Today with you, we begin a journey towards making this world a better place, making me and you, a better person. Not that we have been bad people, but we have come to the realization, that with you we can only achieve more and make greater impact in this world.

Ideas and Innovation change the world. In 2006 Blake Mycoskie travelled to Argentina and he witnessed children walking barefooted, he returned the following year with friends and family to hand-place 10,000 pairs of new shoes to children. In between the visit and the return, he had setup the One for One movement, Blake made a commitment to match every pair of TOMS shoe purchased with a new pair given to a child in need. They have shared over 1 million shoes.

In us lies tonnes of ideas, ideas that are worth sharing. This ideas can impact a few, or could impact a multitude. Ideas don’t just happen, they take a while to evolve. They start as a glimpse of thought that flashes in your mind. And your thoughts needs to connect with other people’s thoughts to be fully formed. The internet makes it easier than ever before, to connect with other people’s ideas which encourages greater ideas and innovation.

At CreativityTurf we are creating a space where ideas could mingle, swap and thereby evolve into new forms. Take that bold step today, that idea in you could change the lives of others.
