  • Nearly seven in 10 (68%) consumers around the world say that during a recession they would remain loyal to a brand if it supports a good cause;
  • 71% say that when they think about the economic downturn, they have either given the same or more time and money to good causes;
  • 42% of consumers say “helping others and contributing to my community” brings them the strongest feelings of contentment, but only 25% of people gain contentment from the shopping experience;
  • 76% say they like to buy brands that make a donation to worthy causes;
  • 82% of consumers globally say they can personally make a difference by supporting good causes; and
  • 83% of consumers are willing to change their own consumption habits to help make tomorrow’s world a better place.
