Embracing a World of Opportunity

Melissa has traveled the globe and built her career along the way. For now, you will find her in Kabul, Afghanistan working for UNICEF as the Chief of Polio Eradication, but if Melissa has her way, she will be moving on to something and somewhere new again soon!

Strength in Numbers

His vast reach and experience create a network of talent and opportunity, and along with friends and colleagues Brian Hickling and Chaz Thorne, it only takes about six weeks for Mike to raise one of the largest agencies in Toronto to work for five days, for nonprofits only… for free.

Check out more on Mike and how The Give Agency came to life.
