The development of goodgoods.ca (formerly inklugeon) has been an ongoing side project of mine for 2 years. Talking and working with many not for profit organizations, social entrepreneurs, and individuals trying to make a difference at a grass roots level have inspired me to develop this site to fill a need – an online marketing platform with bulk branding promoting good causes.
The goals of raising funds and the promotion of campaigns, events, and services can be taxing and distracting from focusing on the mission of these groups. Goodgoods wants to help ease the demands with an easy to use, no financial risk marketing platform that links the availability of goods to the purchasing power of the public.
Together, we can use these new trends of social media sharing and online shopping – easy for everyone, suppliers and shoppers alike, to become empowered.

“I thrive through creative challenges and collaborations. We all have imaginations, the trick is to turn what we imagine into creative ideas that can then become innovations. We have shaped a citizenry that is afraid of asking their own questions and dismayed by pointless group work. I work with people to build positive and productive environments that encourage creativity, pursuing curiosities, and fruitful collaborations. My dream is to work with more individuals and teams to cultivate ideas, fulfilling work experiences, and creative transformations.” – Paul Syme
