To shed light on the social impact of charity micro movie projects, Taiwan Mobile introduced the concept of social return on investment (SROI), converting the social influence of a project into monetary forms. For example, we assisted the Taiwan People's Food Bank in the production of a micro movie “Temperature" to deliver the message—no waste, no hunger. The result indicated that the SROI of this i-infinity charity micro movie amounted to NT$ 2.968 billion, and compared with the cost invested by various stakeholders, the SROI value was 8.7, which is equivalent to a benefit of NT$8.7 for every dollar of investment made.
