I thought I would share a bit about Give Back Chicago (http://www.givebackchicago.com/). It’s a group (myself included) who got together and thought it would be a nice idea to hold a happy hour and auction to connect professionals with skills-based volunteering opportunities.

Some of the projects/opportunities include:

  • Writing Press Releases
  • Event Planning
  • Grant Writing
  • Administrative Help (filing, data entry, office work, etc)
  • Graphic Design
  • Marketing/Newsletter Help
  • …..and more 

We will be hosting the “auction” on November 4th at 5:30pm at Buca di Beppo (Rush and Grand). There will be time to meet and network, then an “auction” to connect with the nonprofits and volunteer for specific projects, then more time to network!  www.givebackchicago.eventbrite.com.

Buca is donating pizza and the space (they really do rock – if you go to eat there, ask for the salad with apples – trust me).

There is a $10 fee. I know it’s a tough time for many, and I know $10 sometimes is tough to stretch and I totally understand. However, all of the money will be donated to a nonprofit (we will draw their name out of a hat at the event) and we are not keeping any of it (except to pay for the Eventbrite fee).

I’d love it if you would be able to come out on the 4th and donate a few hours of your time, and more importantly, your skills. If you cannot make it, please let me know how you are doing and if you would like to know about any opportunity where you can help with your skills!

Stay smiling,
