Pledge 1%

It’s a small commitment today that can make a huge impact tomorrow.


bitvoodoo participates at Pledge 1%

1% doesn't sound like much. However, with the Pledge 1% movement a lot of good can be achieved. This global initiative motivates companies to provide 1% of their capital, profits, products or working time for a social, non-profit purpose. Not only to take, but also to give back. We are proud to be a part of this movement.

Previous Pledge 1% projects by bitvoodoo

Planting trees in Bubikon

For this year's contribution to the Pledge 1% movement, we swapped office chairs, keyboards and screens for saplings, shovels and tree guards with the aim of giving a new home to more than 200 trees. With the sun shining down on us, we spent a full day in a forest in Bubikon, Zurich. Thanks to the help of myblueplanet, lots of physical labor and great teamwork, we managed to plant our own small forest. The trees, some of them labelled with bitvoodoo, can be found here for at least another 50 years.

WBZ Basel

After a long break caused by the pandemic, bitvoodoo was finally taking part in the Pledge 1% movement again in 2022. This year, we spent a day at the Wohn- und Bürozentrum für Körperbehinderte (WBZ) in Reinach to help set up their yearly flea market.

The flea market has been going on for more than 40 years and is a firmly established and cherished tradition in Reinach. Volunteers collect various items throughout the year and offer them to the public for four days at the end of October. The profits go to people with disabilities and help, among other things, to create jobs for them.

Jurapark Aargau

A first for the Aargau Jurapark, where corporate volunteering was offered in Mandach, and hard-working corporate volunteers from the bitvoodoo team joined in. As a member of the Pledge 1% movement, bitvoodoo staff exchanged office chairs for hedge trimmers and some fresh air with a lovely day spent in Jurapark 2020.


In 2019 bitvoodoo was on the road again as an enthusiastic supporter of the Pledge 1% movement - that year we were at the Moos Buur in the Zurich Oberland. On a sunny morning at the beginning of October, we went up to the Moos-Buur in Gibswil in the canton of Zurich. Karin and Martin Jöhl welcomed us on their highlying farm, 850 meters above sea level in Mountain Zone 1. Between cows, calves, chickens, cats and a dog, our working bitvoodoo team spent the day helping out in the pastures, meadows and forest on this beautiful farm.

Neighborly help Zurich

"Tri Tra Trallala... the Kasperli is back!"

The adventures of the legendary Swiss fairytale puppet theater character have long since gathered a loyal following and these adventures are still a highlight for young (and old!) children.

bitvoodoo donated its second Pledge 1% day in 2017 to Neighbourhood Aid Zurich, which held a pre-Christmas party as part of the U. N.'s annual International Volunteer Day on December 5th. Invited were children from financially and socially disadvantaged families, who were able to enjoy games, presents, and performances for one evening and indulge in culinary delights. The bitvoodoo team took an active part in the organisation on site and helped througout the evening


And what does Kasperli have to do with it? He helped the servant Härzbluet to win the favour of Princess Lametta at Winterblick Castle, and made everyone laugh with his wild chase on a balloon ride through space.

Jurapark Aargau

A day in the vineyards while doing good in the community - a win-win!

Stone structures such as dry stone walls or stone ledges provide an important habitat for heat-loving animal and plant species such as wall lizards, wall pepper and wild roses. Under expert guidance and using our pure muscle power, the bitvoodoo team built a stone wall in Jurapark Aargau. Improving the ecosystem for the animals and plants in this important area was part of bitvoodoo's commitment to, and participation in, the Pledge 1% movement launched by Atlassian and Salesforce.
