Hearts & Minds - Information for Change

Comments from Our Volunteers

       I was a recent immigrant in 2009 when Hearts & Minds made a huge difference in my life.
       I barely had any experience in the United States since I came in 2007. After being a full time volunteer for three months, I stood out among the other applicants for an accounting position. I got the job, and three months later I was offered a full-time position with benefits and vacation time. My work with the company is going very well for two years now.
       Additionally, during my time at Hearts & Minds I made new friends from all over the world, and I am truly touched by all the people who selflessly contribute to the End Poverty Campaign.

       I love that everything we do is organized and run by volunteers. It allows every member a chance to contribute in the most personally satisfying (and useful) way. We are awesome.
       - Mark Van Hare

       I felt like an important part of the organization, as if my input truly affected decision making. The mission should inspire all of us to get involved more in our communities.

       Hearts & Minds helps others realize they have potential within themselves to change and help others change as well.
       - Leah Cheng, Baruch College CUNY

       I like the Hearts & Minds mission. It’s an original idea but a basic one, too.
       - Liz Hoffman, high school student, New York City

       This organization can be very beneficial to people who are interested in volunteering. It can also help others become interested in volunteering.
       - Marissa C., University of Wisconsin, Madison

       I like the fact that people are taking their own time to help with the Web site and magazine. And I also like the fact that we’re helping others help others. I've enjoyed my stay here at Hearts & Minds and hope that the network expands in the future.
       - Brian Petersen, SUNY New Paltz

       This is needed to help give people a push in the right direction, helping them get involved. It will be exciting and fulfilling, when this organization takes off, to know that I was a part of its beginning stages and that I helped make it happen.
       I thank you for giving me this wonderful opportunity. I enjoyed working here and I know all the skills that I gained here will help me in the future.
       - Stephanie Prager, Lehigh University

       What most attracted me to Hearts & Minds was its vision. A non-profit organization that utilizes marketing for social good - a pretty brave and worthy mission, don't you think?
       One of the best things about Hearts & Minds is it's both young and innovative. This allows an intern to make an impact. This is a place where your ideas are valuable and welcomed.
       It’s both refreshing and inspiring to be part of an environment where people really care about what they're doing.

       I like the goals and the mission of Hearts & Minds and I like what it’s working to accomplish. It’s nice to know there are organizations around like this.
       I hope I have greatly helped Hearts & Minds. They have helped me - not only with learning and job experience, but with making myself a better person.
       Hearts & Minds makes me feel useful and really takes into consideration my ideas and comments. Knowing that I am helping such a great cause really makes me feel better about myself.
       I feel that I had a great experience. I definitely plan to work here again. Thank you for the opportunity.
       - Shelby Wood, University of Maryland

       Thank you for allowing me to intern for Hearts & Minds this summer. Not only did I learn a lot of useful skills but I really believe in what this organization stands for.
       I greatly respect the efforts you are making to effect change in the world. As promised, I have been spreading the word about Hearts & Minds around campus.
       - Tara Cremin, Ithaca, NY
