VOLUNTEER!
We are 100% Volunteer-Operated. 
Volunteer of the Quarter:
Ryan Treviranus

    "I joined the GIVE shirt movement because I too share a love for giving. I always remember one of the most important lessons I learned in elementary school: "sharing is caring".  This is crucial in our communities today.  We all need to work together to make the world a happier and healthier place.  I have worked with non-profits in the past doing marketing and that is the area that I am devoting my time with the GIVE shirt.  Marketing is extremely important in order to spread the word.  Everyone can join in on this effort by simply talking up this movement with friends and sharing your giving experiences via social media channels. 
    While I am volunteering with the GIVE shirt movement, I hope to make many connections and witness first-hand the impact of advocacy for giving.  It is a great mission to not only promote ones' self but to promote anyone doing good for the world."

Who are we searching for?
Anyone and Everyone!
We can especially benefit from a Volunteer Coordinator.
There are also many, many other ways to help...

SPONSORS

http://www.footlevelers.com/

    Footlevelers has donated a pair of orthodics each of the last 4 years!  This has helped allow Thomas Budde, Ph.D. – Founder/Operator of theGIVEshirt.com and Creator/Organizer of the Annual Worldwide 24-Hour Runathon – to not only continually train for and complete the 24-Hour run each year, but also 1) maintain his health and vitality by remaining active, and 2) exercise with clients to earn money, both of which allow him to continue voluntarily growing and developing the GIVE shirt movement.  Thank you Footlevelers for your generous support!

Story of the 4th Annual Worldwide 24-Hour Runathon to Raise Awareness and Money for Health and Giving – 8/25/13

    Every year is an adventure.  And a gift.  A blessing.  Every day, really.  Every hour.  Every minute.  Such is life.  And Sunday, August 25, 2013 was no different.  The whole day, midnight to midnight.  Every hour.  Every minute.  An adventure, a gift, and a blessing, as we ran all 24 hours to help everyone in the world become more aware of their health, and of giving.  And to raise money for numerous causes.

    But the adventure did not start at midnight on 8/25/13.  The Annual Worldwide 24-Hour Runathon to Raise Awareness and Money for Health and Giving occurs every year, and preparations have already begun for the 5th Annual on Saturday, August 23, 2014.  The more participation that we have throughout the world on that day, and in preparation of the event throughout the year, the more we can help the world with this unique and potentially powerful tool.  So please let us know how you are ready to commit to helping!! In the Milwaukee, WI area we are running a loop by Bradford Beach, with a main meeting place with parking, bathrooms, food/water, etc. to make it easier for the Organizer, but also for all those participating.  And – especially – to make a bigger impact on the observers, for that is the whole purpose of the event!
