Intern or Volunteer with to Recruit Celebrities and Make a Difference!

Help us recruit actors, musicians, athletes, and other celebrities to lend their voices.

We are not asking them to take on a new cause. Rather, we provide them a way to help their favorite nonprofits capture some of the $450 billion Americans spend each year buying presents.

  • Use your skills, experience, knowledge, creativity and talent.
  • Become a member of our dynamic and creative international team, and become a leader among those who care for the same causes as you do.
  • Help us grow a movement to facilitate and encourage a new type of meaningful giving through direct engagement of nonprofits, foundations, associations, thought leaders, media, and celebrities.
  • Work from our Manhattan office or remotely.
  • Enhance your resume and get a glowing letter of recommendation.


The New York Times called an " of the nonprofit world" for our work in helping 400 leading nonprofits capture money normally spent on traditional presents.

At the same time that a million nonprofits desperately need more funds to accomplish their missions, Americans spend $450 billion a year on birthday, holiday, and other presents. Most of those presents are not very rewarding. Tons of sweaters, fuzzy slippers, and ties end up in the dark corners of our closets.

More and more people, who seek meaning more than things, are starting to show their love by donating in a friend’s name in lieu of giving traditional presents.

The challenge for nonprofits is that it is simply too daunting to provide the requisite gift-like experience (tangible charitable gifts, wish lists and registries, and personalized printed greeting cards) that can make a donation feel like a rewarding gift. provides those tools to facilitate this type of giving for nonprofits and donors.

We are about to take ChangingThePresent to the next level. That involves expanding from the initial 400 organizations to invite all 1.1 million nonprofits; adding additional causes and categories. Within each cause area, we will seek growth funding, invite advisors, recruit nonprofits, use media and social media to raise awareness among the public, and recruit celebrities to lend their voices.

Imagine the impact we can make together as more and more people adopt this type of meaningful giving.
