“Being from the NE corner of the state, many times I can feel very isolated from the rest of EE community. EEAO helps me feel connected to other educators and keeps me abreast of trends in the EE field.”
Amy Busch
EEAO member since 2010
“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.”
Kevin Clein
Campaign Research Analyst
“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.”
