Feb. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- KANSAS CITY, February 24, 2012 – On February 22, 2012, MINDDRIVE 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, benefitting more than 200 non-profits around the globe.

“This is an easy way for our supporters to donate to MINDDRIVE and to tell their friends and family about why MINDDRIVE is important to them,” says Linda Buchner, MINDDRIVE President. 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 MINDDRIVE 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 MINDDRIVE. “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 MINDDRIVE together with hundreds of charities around the world.

MINDDRIVE is an educational 501(c)3 organization working with at-risk high school students.  Our mission statement is threefold: “To inspire students to want to learn” – our program ignites their desire to excel at school in their core subjects;
“To expand their vision for the future” – we have adult professional mentors working shoulder-to-shoulder with our students week after week. Students see that there are people who care about their future and that can guide them to where there strengths are, and to help them visualize themselves in an occupation after high school.  
Lastly, “Have a positive influence on urban workforce development”.  Our students have much more skills, self-confidence, accountability and responsibility when they leave our program.  They are ready for either post-secondary education or can move right into a trade training program.

Everyone Gives is a global giving campaign.  Launching on February 22, 2012, the eight-day event empowers givers to support the causes they care about and multiply their gift through the power of personal networks. Everyone Gives will take place in more than sixty countries. Everyone Gives can be reached at http://www.everyonegives.org, www.facebook.com/EveryoneGives, www.twitter.com/EveryoneGives and www.tinyurl/EveryoneGives (LinkedIn).
