Our Story

Our Beginnings

Two21 was founded in late 2017 with the goal to help Not For Profit organisations. It later evolved to become less specific but still generally help good people and improve social outcomes.

The Name
Two21 is an unusual name but it has a specific meaning. The founder of Two21 has three children, each very different. His youngest child was blessed with Down’s syndrome (Trisomy 21). Down’s syndrome is a genetic disorder caused when abnormal cell division results in extra genetic material from chromosome 21, or three chromosomes at 21. You can put two and 2 together here.

The little guy uses his gift to make his world better with smiles and laughter. Two21 was founded to make the world better, using different skills and experience.
