In 2004 we founded the non-profit foundation Virgin Unite to unite people and entrepreneurial ideas to create opportunities for a better world. Over the last decade, together with some great partners, we have inspired and incubated a number of wonderful collaborations – like The Elders
, Ocean Unite
, Carbon War Room
, The B Team
and The Branson Centre for Entrepreneurship
– which have spurred much needed change in the world.
I now spend the majority of my time working with Virgin Unite to make a positive difference in the world. From supporting projects that I’m passionate about, such as being an advocate for gay rights, to drug policy reform, to using my voice and that of the Virgin Group to shine a spotlight on issues that I believe are unacceptable, such as poaching and the death penalty.
I am incredibly proud of what Virgin Unite have achieved and thank you for your continued support of Virgin Unite. I truly believe that working together we can turn challenges into opportunities, allowing us to always push boundaries to make business and the world better.
As with all donations to Virgin Unite, your financial support goes a long way. Virgin Unite’s overheads are covered by myself and the Virgin Group, meaning that 100 per cent of all donations received go directly to initiatives we create or support.
