Tirana, February 22, Colliers International is supporting “Everyone Gives”, a revolutionary, eight day, social giving campaign, which will launch in more than 60 countries around the world.
Participants make a small donation – such as €5 – to a charity that’s important to them, tell five friends and ask those friends to each tell five more.
“I think of it as a giving tree,” explains Doug Frye, President and CEO of Colliers International, one of the world’s largest commercial real estate firms and founding sponsor. “One donation becomes five, five become 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 also draws on the power of social media to spread the word among people’s social networks including Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
“It’s exciting because it’s never been done before,” continues Frye. “This isn’t another one-off charity donation; this is about enabling individuals to engage their personal connections to give more to the charities they are passionate about. So please post, like, tweet, email and ask the people in your network to support your favourite cause or pick a charity of their own.”
In Europe over 100 charities have already registered with Everyone Gives. Current charities already signed up for Everyone Gives include: The Albanian Children Foundation. Let’s all donate to Albanian children and families in need. 100% of each donation will go directly to the charity a participant selects.
Those interested can register on the Everyone Gives website or follow the event on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn for updates.
