1. THE BEGINNING

This innovation, initially came to life when…

This innovation, initially came to life when we realised there was a way for SMEs to give back in new ways; ways that made it really easy for them to select high-impact projects with fully 100% of their giving where they wanted it to go and ways that let them ‘connect’ very differently.

We realised too that giving had to be about the IMPACT not about the money given AND that, correctly handled, very small giving could actually create huge impacts.

2. WHAT & HOW
