Founded by Laura and David Conti. They are passionate about social enterprises being the new business frontier, bringing compassion to business and using commercial opportunities to drive social change.

50% of profits are donated to charities supporting women & children experiencing homelessness. Their signature product is ta bedroom pillow which is made in Melbourne Australia, ethically sourced and sustainably packaged with no single-use plastic packaging.

A 4 pack of #GoKindly pillows provide 1 night of accommodation to a woman experiencing homelessness, they do this by supporting their partner charities WISHIN and Women’s Housing Ltd.

Within 3 years we aim to be providing $100,000 per year to our charity partners which would provide 1,000 nights’ accommodation to women experiencing homelessness.

As a result of the Dreamstarter crowdfunding campaign, #GoKindly can move into workspace so they can grow and help more women & children experiencing homelessness in Australia.

Impact:
  • In 2019 #GoKindly aim to provide 200 nights of accommodation and donate 200 pillows to women in need.
  • Help provide an ongoing sustainable funding stream for grassroots charities helping women experiencing homelessness.
