For Your Suppliers

The Potential

For over 25 years, Microhive (formerly known as Pennies from Heaven) has been asking employees to donate the pennies from their payslip to charity. Giving small amounts through pay is affordable, simple, and impactful for both employees and companies.

The culture of collaboration, communication, trust, and mutual respect are key success factors across supply chains. We believe that this sense of integration, support and connection can be harnessed for a greater purpose: charitable giving. We believe that a great charitable opportunity exists to empower supply chains to make a positive impact in the world. Let’s ask your supply chain to donate small amounts, on a regular basis, to your corporate charities, and work together for the betterment of society.
