“I’m doing my part to help the world. That’s what we do here at Sir Richard’s. For every condom you purchase, we donate one to a developing country. So far, Sir Richard’s has donated over 2.5 million condoms.”
Buy One, Give One Sir Richard’s Impact Sir Richard's was founded in 2009 by a team of socially conscious entrepreneurs and designers. Sir Richard’s condoms were launched in the market in January 2011. The company’s founders believed that the time was ripe to breathe life into a very dated product category controlled by one or two companies that hadn’t innovated in decades.
At the core of their purpose, the founders also wanted to connect product sales and company growth with a direct global humanitarian impact. As such, since its founding, for every condom Sir Richard’s sells, we donate one condom to a community in need. To date, we have donated millions of condoms as part of our Buy One, Give One program.
Over our first few years, Sir Richard’s primarily partnered with Partners In Health as a distribution partner to get condoms safely and effectively to Haiti. These condoms have been made available at no charge through PIH's clinics.
Partners In Health ranks as one of the largest nongovernmental health care providers in Haiti with over 5,000 employees and more than 2.6 million patient visits at its clinics in 2008. It launched the world's first program to provide free, comprehensive HIV care and treatment in an impoverished setting, and as part of its prevention efforts distributes (on average) two million condoms per year.
In early 2014, the company initiated its “Nominate a Cause” program to crowdsource Buy One, Give One donation recipients. Sir Richard’s customers can now nominate a cause they care about to receive donated condoms.(Más)
