“I have always been an active member of the community but always felt like I could do so much more. Giver charity organization has given me the option to work for something I am truly passionate about. Every time I am a part of a successful campaign, I feel like I have attached a lot.”

“One of the most amazing part of Giver is that they truly let you contribute to a great cause in the way you want. I volunteer regularly and every small thing I do is appreciated. I can see how even the smallest of actions can make a big differnece in someone’s life-the true power of chairity.”
