Let's go...

We are taking you on a journey of personal discovery and transformation. In your groups, and as individuals, you will find out more about who you are, what your purpose is and the amazing amount you offer the world.

You will be exposed to humanity and diversity that will challenge your thinking. You will identify your strengths and develop your leadership skills. You’ll finish with a tool kit on how to give well. You’ll make friends for life. And you will be launched into a lifestyle of generosity – a life adventure that will reward you while you reward others incredibly.

Give what you can

Whilst your group starts with £0 in your group shared giving pot we assume that in joining BeMORE you are willing to give financially into your group shared pot too. You must be able to donate this money to your group’s chosen charity on or close to early December 2019. An individual’s ability to gift money will vary so financial pledges will not be disclosed to your fellow group members rather the group’s total pooled financial gift will be announced in session 6.

Sponsor someone’s experience

Your place on this BeMORE experience is free thanks to the generosity of those who have gone before and “paid it forward” by sponsoring places on the next experience. Generosity creates generosity as our community is inspired to help spread the message of generosity. We want to ensure there are very few barriers to spreading this message and the impact generosity creates. We are on an exciting journey. We invite you to be a part of it, giving what you can so that together we can take ownership and make BeMORE’s vision to embed generosity into culture a reality. Please give here.
