How? By incorporating a unique experience that is unlocked by a philanthropic donation, where each experience makes a positive impact. For example: - in Italy, donate to a kitchen caring for the homeless and in return, enjoy a cooking masterclass with a Michelin starred chef - in Chile, donate to puma conservation and track them in the wild - in Indonesia, accompany an orangutan family rescued from deforestation of their natural habitat as they are released to a protected island - in New Zealand, go sailing with an America's Cup winning sailor in return for a donation to his charity - in Australia, fund an arts scholarship for a promising Aboriginal student and enjoy an exclusive session with an established artist from whom you can commission a work of art
