Is it possible to run a business that makes money while helping to make the world a little better? We believe so. Therefore we have started Ticmate Charity.
In Ticmate we are committed to offer travelers the best experiences around the world. Our goal is to run a healthy business that helps shape a better world for our customers, employees and vendors. In 2017, we have 22 staff members, equivalent to 19 full-time employees. Furthermore, it's important to us to take a social responsibility and work towards a better world, that's why we donate 10% of our profits to Doctors Without Borders (MSF).
Since 2009 we have donated 2 373 500 SEK to charity.
