A word about Social Good
from Rahul and Sumeet

While it should be assumed that our business is built on principles of dealing honestly and fairly with our customers, doing quality work, and creating quality products, all of this emanates from the core of who and what we want to be as a business.

In all our work we intend to include an aspect of social good — be it through donations, bringing visibility to causes which matter to us, or by creating products which inherently facilitate a positive social impact.

As we build our company, we are working towards a set of goals that includes building a culture which cultivates happiness and self-fulfillment, aiming towards a carbon-neutral operation, and enriching the communities in which we work.

We take 10% of our revenue and stash it in our Social Good Fund. We use that fund to support causes, events and organizations that we believe in. Sometimes we aim locally, sometimes globally, but in either case we don't just work hard for ourselves and our customers. We work hard to make sure that we're making positive change in the world.

Based in Omaha, Nebraska, Big Wheel Brigade is a Silicon Prairie Company with Silicon Valley roots.

We provide software development services to agencies, entrepreneurs, businesses large and small, and non-profit organizations.

So if you need a competent, trustworthy partner to make your business idea a reality, to support you with your client work, to build an application for managing your business, or simply need to get a WordPress skin to fit, we want to hear about it.

Bring in the Big Wheel Brigade. We'll provide the support you need, treat you with respect and courtesy, and deal with you honestly.

Our commitment to social good

The $29,000 Birthday Swim for Charity: Water

This year, at the World Domination Summit, our friend, Sarah Peck, was inspired by Scott Harrison of Charity: Water. She is giving up her 29th birthday for Charity: Water, and has kicked off the $29,000 Birthday Swim. She is asking that we, in honor of her birthday, make donations of (at least) $29 to Charity: Water, with a goal of reaching $29,000.

If that goal is met, Ms. Peck will, in her birthday suit, swim 1.5 miles from Alcatraz to San Francisco.

To that end, Big Wheel Brigade will match 100 $29 donations. All told (your donations plus our match), that’ll be $5,800, or 20% of Sarah’s goal.

$5,800 will bring clean life-saving, life-granting, life-changing water to 290 people.
