September 2013

LaunchGood.com officially launches

It wasn’t the fanciest website (or even mobile-friendly), but thanks to a few incredible Muslims willing to take a leap of faith like Nadoona, Bassem Rashidi, and Peter Gould, we took off.

We failed to get VC funding - TWICE!

Despite some good early traction, we couldn’t find any VC funding.

In hindsight, it may have been a blessing in disguise - it forced us to bootstrap the whole way and be very intentional with every dollar we earned.

Some early wins kept us motivated

Even though we were broke, we were growing, and early on there were some critically encouraging moments, like winning the AMCC Entrepreneur Showcase Award & the Islamic Economy Award (alongside Chris’ childhood hero Yusuf “Cat Stevens” Islam!).

Top talent joins our adventure with the first fellowship

Nothing has been more critical to our success than our team. We couldn’t afford to pay salaries at the beginning, yet needed serious professionals to build a serious company - so the LaunchGood Fellowship was born with Sameera, Tasneem and Loudawg. In total, we’ve had 7 cohorts with 38 fellows from 7 countries (more than 700 applied!).

June 2015

Ramadan Challenge was born!

Having our own platforms means we can make products that serve our needs. No month is more important to Muslims than Ramadan, and we wanted to build a product that donors loved and would have a global impact. Since its inception, the Ramadan Challenge - along with the Dhul Hijjah Challenge & Friday Givers (two further custom products) - has helped over 100,000 people share $5 million worldwide.

July 2015

LaunchGood’s first viral campaign

A shining “knight” in our community, Faatimah Knight, was grief stricken by a series of arson attacks on Black churches in the US South, and to show solidarity began a small campaign, “Rebuild with Love”.

The campaign quickly blew past its goal and raised over 10x their original intention, becoming our first of many viral campaigns of ordinary Muslims responding to evil with good.

Won $100K EFICA award & took off

LaunchGood continued to grow, but we had lingering debts, outdated laptops, etc. that was holding us back. We got a huge break when we won a live-pitch contest for the EFICA (Ethical Finance Innovation Challenge Awards) in Abu Dhabi in 2016.

The award gave us the boost we needed to invest in ourselves and propel us forward!

Our website runs into a “Harry” problem

After Donald Trump was elected President, a number of Jewish cemeteries were desecrated. In response, Linda Sarsour, Tarek El-Messidi & Celebrate Mercy ran an inspiring campaign that raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to repair them and notably earned a tweet from J.K. Rowling, the famed Harry Potter author, which promptly crashed the website. Oops!

Launched deeper engagement in UK & Malaysia

Although LaunchGood began in America 🇺🇸, today we serve Muslims across the globe, with campaigns in more than 130 countries. To best serve our community, we increased services in London and Kuala Lumpur 🇲🇾, in addition to also engaging other resources remotely in Australia 🇦🇺, Canada 🇨🇦, Egypt 🇪🇬, Singapore 🇸🇬 and a few global nomads who change countries every few months. Needless to say, scheduling meetings makes for an interesting challenge.

Feeling the heartbeat of the Ummah

We grieved & the world grieved after the disgusting attack on innocent Muslims attending Friday prayers in Christchurch, New Zealand. Local Muslims quickly organized a record-setting LaunchGood campaign that raised over $2 million in 48 hours and brought together tens of thousands from nearly every country in the world, including Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey, and actors Riz Khan and Alyssa Milano.

Collective efforts emerged to #OutsmartCorona

As the world shutdown, the global crisis prompted a heightened sense of empathy and solidarity among donors. Fundraisers had a place to continue their efforts online and reach wider communities. This remarkable response showcased the power of unity during the pandemic.

The worst in humanity brings out the best in humanity.

A tragic incident motivated by Islamaphobia was marked as the deadliest mass killing in the city. Four members of the same family lost their lives, as the youngest 9-year-old survived and was left orphaned.
