Groundbreaking campaign uses the power of personal networks to “connect for good” and benefit hundreds of charities worldwide
On February 22, 2012, Our Hope Association will participate in a revolutionary eight-day global giving campaign spanning more than 60 countries around the world. “Everyone Gives” promises to be the most extensive and inclusive global giving event ever attempted, benefiting more than 200 non-profits around the globe.
This is an easy way for our supporters to donate to Our Hope and to tell their friends and family about why Our Hope is important to them. Donating is simple and secure, and one hundred percent of all donations made through Everyone Gives go directly to the non-profit selected by the donor.
Participants make a small donation, as little as $5, to Our Hope through the Everyone Gives website at www.everyonegives.org and then tap into their social networks via email, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook to invite friends, co-workers, clients and family to support Our Hope as well. “I think of it as a giving tree,” explains Doug Frye, President of Colliers International and a founding sponsor of Everyone Gives. “One donation becomes five, five becomes 25 and 25 can become hundreds. And you can track your giving tree and your friends’ giving trees on the Everyone Gives website.“
Everyone Gives grew from a seed planted by the leaders at Colliers International, one of the world’s largest commercial real estate firms. The idea germinated and grew through collaboration with other like-minded organizations, seeking to create sustainable good, joining Colliers International and Our Hope Association together with hundreds of charities around the world.
