Watch this space in 2020

Hi conscious people!

2019 is coming to an end and that means we’re ringing in a new chapter in 2020. Over the years, we’ve evolved and adapted, but one thing never changes; our 100% commitment to build a global community that catalyzes millions of people and businesses do what’s right fo their body, the animals and the planet. 2019 has been an amazing year for the community as we hit a major milestone - 100,000 reviews globally! We want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for reviewing all the delicious vegan dishes and products every day, and for choosing to make a difference through your donations.

We take your feedback very seriously, and we've dynamically responded to our community base by further embracing our diverse global community of members, adding in multiple animal sanctuary partners from all over the world, and adding long-requested features in. This year alone, we added the ability to review products, find dishes and vegan-friendly restaurants on the map, improved search and even translated the app into Spanish! The response to all of these features have been overwhelming, but we haven't been resting on our laurels. A global mindset has been central to our strategic vision and we focus on taking it to the next level in 2020 with very exciting plans.

2020, bring it on! Be excited for improved and new app features.

Our mission is to make it easy for the world to be vegan, and this year we're introducing a year-long content campaign to do exactly that. Look out for our weekly articles on a wide range of topics. It doesn't stop there. We're taking your feedback for restaurants one step further and turning them into a guide that will offer businesses a detailed step-by-step process to become more sustainable, cruelty-free and vegan-friendly.

New app features

We’re rolling up with some new app features in the coming months.

Collections

Everyone likes top-ten lists. This new feature will allow members to customise a collection of their best food and products for the community. Members can share and discover new food and products by posting images to their collection and browse what other members have saved. Share your tastes and interests with others and discovering those of likeminded people. Travelling? See what other members recommend before you go.

Discover

Reviews

You'll finally be able to search for photos in folders, upload higher quality photos, and edit them in-app. We'll also be adding the ability to save drafts so you can come back to them anytime.

Near Me

You'll be able to search for vegan dishes and restaurants anywhere, not just what's around you.

Recipes

Donations

We're aiming to reach 100 partners by the end of the year, so you're going to have a lot more choices for who you want to support. Look forward to sharing your donation history and seeing how your support helps our partners.

Badges

We want to reward you for everything you do on the app, so we'll be celebrating your major milestones with badges that you can display in your profile. And yes, there will be plenty of cute, adorable animals.

Chat

Some of you have been wanting to reach out to, and share content with, other members on the app; your wait ends this year. The new chat feature lets you get more targeted and personal with specific members.

Whew! That's quite a lot planned for 2020, but we're confident you're going to love all of it. You can also look forward to a faster, more reliable, better-looking experience on the app and website.

A million-dollar project

2019 saw abillionveg crushing many of our big audacious goals. To date, we’ve donated USD 60,000 to our 35 incredible animal rescue partners. We have partnered with various animal welfare organisations who are committed to make an impact for animals across the globe. At the top of our goal for 2020 is to donate USD 1,000,000 to our growing partners. These animal advocacy organisations work hard to do beautiful work around the globe. With your reviews, we aim to support the growth of their positive impact in the coming year. We’re truly living in the best time where we have the power at our fingertips to create change by simply reviewing ten vegan dishes or products to redeem USD 10 donation.

We’re hiring!

With so many goals to crush in the coming year, it's an exciting time to be part of the team here at abillionveg. We're looking for talented, passionate members who want to make a difference from behind the scenes. If you want to drive change from the driver's seat, apply here.

As we get ready to close out an amazing 2019, we want to thank you for everything you accomplished this year. Every one of you contributed to our success, and we have so much to celebrate as a community. We have an exciting journey ahead of us, and we look forward to sharing our goals and experiences with one another, both on and off the app. We've told you what we want to accomplish. Tell us your goals for 2020 in the comments below.
