5 Years of Impact: Partnered with Thousands. Donated Millions. Inspiring Billions.

NEW YORK – May 22, 2023 – From its initial launch in May of 2018, abillion, the plant-based and sustainability focused app, has had as its mission to mobilize a billion people to save the planet by making better consumer choices. The app is proud to announce it is celebrating its 5 year anniversary this May.

From its humble beginnings helping one non-profit, the Leilani Farm Sanctuary in Hawaii, to donating over $2.8 million to its global impact partners from over 180 countries around the world, abillion has seen rapid, sustained growth. The app has had over 1 million downloads from its members around the globe and a 20x growth rate over the past two years. Furthering its global presence, abillion was proud to be a Presenting Sponsor at this past weekend’s Vegan Women Summit, whose community reaches over 50,000 members from 31 countries around the world.

What makes abillion so unique is that every time a member of the community posts a review of a product or a dish at a restaurant they receive the opportunity to select the non-profit partner who will receive a donation from the company. Members also receive equity in abillion for every review and in the last year alone over 12,000 members from over 100 different countries have secured $273,000 in equity in the company.

“At abillion we’re working to inspire people to discover purpose and values through the things all of us do every day,” states founder and CEO, Vikas Garg. “We’ve redesigned social media and built a marketplace where the community’s actions on the abillion app translate into impact in the real world.”  

To celebrate its 5th anniversary, abillion is having a special campaign whereby whenever a member invites a friend to sign up for the app, both they and the new member receive $1 in impact credits to donate to abillion’s non-profit partners.

Reaction from members around the world has been overwhelming and investors have also been impressed with abillion’s unique project as shown by the company raising over $17 million of investment since inception. The company recently closed its first ever community investment round, where 290 members from around the globe invested over $500,000 in the company, thereby furthering the abillion’s goal of democratizing the app for its members.

As for what the future holds for abillion, Vikas states, “As we look to the next five years, we’ll work to grow our movement and create impact on an unprecedented scale.”
