Colliers International | Pittsburgh Announces Participation in Everyone Gives Global Giving Event
Groundbreaking campaign uses the power of personal networks to “connect for good” and benefit hundreds of charities worldwide
Colliers International | Pittsburgh is joining the Colliers International worldwide team in supporting Everyone Gives, a revolutionary eight-day global giving event spanning more than 60 countries around the world. “Everyone Gives” promises to be the most extensive and inclusive global giving event ever attempted, benefitting more than 200 non-profits around the globe.
“This is an easy way to encourage charitable giving through personal networks,” said Gregg Broujos, Managing Director & Founding Principal at Colliers International | Pittsburgh. “Locally we have nominated the National Multiple Sclerosis Society – Western Pennsylvania Chapter, Gilda’s Club Western Pennsylvania and the American Cancer Society – Making Strides Against Breast Cancer to be included in the event. We are proud to announce our support of these local charities, as well as the hundreds of other charities around the world who are included in the event.”
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 the charity of their choice 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 donate. “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.”
ABOUT EVERYONE GIVES:
