Social Good Brand Gives Away Inspirational Stories of Courage


COURAJ is a social good clothing brand founded by Chris Duncan. Based in Austin, TX, it is based on the buy 1, give 1 model. However, instead of giving a product with every purchase, it is giving away an inspirational story of courage.

COURAJ adopts the combination of a TOMS Shoesor LiveStrong business model while spreading stories of courage. When Chris Duncan was asked why give away a story of courage, he responded with, "It helps us accomplish our mission. Stories are one of the most powerful tools on the planet.
