About Ten Very Special Things
It all started with a conversation. It was in late 2011 when Trent Allen (MD of Ziller) and Ravi Prasad (The Trees and the Forests Strategy Director) were sitting in a room workshopping a brand project. Somehow conversation turned to the charities they and their businesses supported – and that soon led to a discussion on corporate and personal philanthropy. Anyway, one thing led to another and soon enough Ravi and Trent were trying to figure out how to connect individuals and businesses with the not-for-profit sector though e-commerce.
And that’s how Ten Very Special Things happened.
The mission and purpose of Ten Very Special Things is to give people a way of turning something special that they own into a donation to their favourite cause and to give business a way of turning their products and services into a contribution to their charity of choice.
