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:
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-
PS Also, check out the great highlights from our Fellows and friends here.
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:
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.
P.S. Remember, mark July 16, 2014, on your calendars!
2014 did become a lot more interesting with an unforgettable January! Our network is now 256 Fellows from 59 countries and 119 Host Organizations. We want to thank you for making this possible with your ongoing support!

Happy Holidays! Here's a fun fact for you - in 2013, you helped us raise more than $19,000 through our GlobalGiving Project. This level of generousity was higher than 2012 and directly supported the 70 Fellows serving during the course of the year. Thank you! Today, I invite you to reflect on all of our achievements of the past 12 months. Together, you and I (along with the Atlas Corps network) took our global service movement to the next level. This period of reflection is also a great time for celebration and preparation for 2014. In less than two weeks, we will announce Class 14 - our first class of 2014 AND our largest class to date. Until then, enjoy our top five highlights of the year.
THANK YOU and Happy Holidays!
P.S. Of course, there is still time to "give the gift of service" before the end of the year. Can we push our GlobalGiving donations to more than $20,000 before the end of the year. You're gift will go directly to support our incoming Fellows in January! All donations made before December 31, 2013, will be matched $1 for $1.
