The way I came up with starting a company that builds websites and donates 5% of proceeds to the Brain and Behaviour Research Foundation is because I have always had a passion for web development and love giving back. I have always been a big advocate of giving back because life is too short not to. I knew if I were ever to start a business I would make sure to give back.
