Fellow Tjay (Kenya) is ready for July 16!

Hello!

Are you ready? Tomorrow at 9:00 AM Eastern time kicks off GlobalGivng Bonus Day - all donations up to $1,000 matched at 50%!

It means that you can give 50% more to support your favorite Atlas Corps Fellows. Your contribution of $20, 50, $100, even $1,000 will provide aspiring leaders from Armenia to Zimbabwe; Colombia to Pakistan as they serve a year in the United States to learn, share, and improve our world. We call it our Do1Thing campaign - celebrating the "1 Thing" we do to make the world better!

Here are three great ways to get involved:

  • Today - show your support using your social media by joining our "thunderclap" (basically, we combine all our Facebook and Twitter networks for a big blast). You can learn more here http://thndr.it/1oEk1s3
  • Tomorrow (July 16) - make your donation of $20, $50, $1,000 and have it matched at 50%! (Remember, donate early because the matching only happens while supplies last).
  • Share - yes, YOU can invite others. Thanks to your support, Atlas Corps is a network of 300 Fellows from 60 countries. Invite others by sharing this message on email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram: Support Atlas Corps Fellows from 60 countries serving to make world better place. All donations matched at 50% bit.ly/AtlasCorpsDo1Thing

You are Atlas Corps! Thank you for supporting our Fellows, believing in our mission, and helping us to inspire a global network of positive changemakers.

Let's celebrate on July 16! Thanks-

Abby

What is your one thing....

#Do1Thing - July 16, 2014
#Do1Thing - July 16, 2014

Hello!

What is the one thing you do to make the world better? Atlas Corps is a network of 290 Fellows from 60 countries who bring their "one thing" together to positively impact our world. Whether it's youth development in Latin America to environmental issues in Southeast Asia, Atlas Corps Fellows cross borders and cultures to bring all those skills together to achieve results! Our Class 15 Fellows just arrived in May and they are already achieving results: 

  • Arturo (Mexico, Host: Kids Good Basket) promotes community building by enhancing daily operations at this hunger relief organizations and engaging unique volunteer groups.
  • Trina (India, Host: American Express Foundation) promotes leadership development through a leadership academy that brings together dynamic leaders from across the world.
  • Darren (China, Host: Human Rights First) promotes LGBT issues by advocating for equality and dignity on a global scale. 


Now, Atlas Corps is asking YOU, our supporters, that question this summer during our #Do1Thing campaign. Are you ready to get involved? The campaign is a lead up to GlobalGiving Bonus Day on July 16, 2014. Bonus Day is a day when individual contributions to Atlas Corps will be matched at 50% on July 16, 2014. 
Will you become a Campaign Captain? This honor means that you commit to donating $10 on 7.16.2014, recruit 10 friends/family to donate $10, and send us your #Do1Thing photo.

Together, we can achieve our goal and collectively share with the world: What is the one thing you do to make the world better? (#Do1Thing)

We are especially looking to YOU to play a special role. We will be in touch with more details over the next few weeks. 

Thanks!

P.S. Remember, mark July 16, 2014, on your calendars!

Today - We officially welcome Atlas Corps Class 15!

Arturo (Mexico) arrives in DC!

Hello!

Congratulations Class 15 - today is the first day of your Atlas Corps experience! We are excited to add our newest group of global leaders to Atlas Corps. And, yes, I said Class 15! Here they are:
How did Atlas Corps go from Classes 0 - 15 in just seven years? How do we become a network of 265 Fellows from 60 countries? It is about you and other inspiring individuals who are the “Atlas Corps Network.” We count on you for the support, which helped Atlas Corps achieve progressive growth in rapid succession. Here’s how it happened:
  • We grew from one class to three classes a year (January, May, and September).
  • We expanded from placing Fellows in one to two countries (United States and Colombia).
  • We extended recruitment from two countries to having placed Fellows from 60 countries (Class 15 includes our first Fellow from China) and we receive applicants from 130.
  • We increased the number of Host Organizations from 6 to more than 120 nonprofit, private, and government entities.
Of course, the numbers are only a fraction of the Atlas Corps story. We complete our story with the connections between people and organizations that happen because of these numbers. We look forward to hearing the stories of these Fellows as they share about the new connections that they make.

 

Thank you for supporting our Fellows and for believing in Atlas Corps-

Scott

P.S. Join us to welcome Atlas Corps Class 15 to Washington, DC, on Wednesday, May 7, at 6:00 PM at the office of the Human Rights Campaign. Details and RSVP at bit.ly/AtlasCorpsWelcomeClass15
