I really didn't get a response back, so I was unsure of what was happening for the process, but obviously they didn't pick me.

UniversalGiving is an amazing nonprofit that truly does the most. Led by the very philanthropic, very approachable CEO Pamela Hawley, UniversalGiving stresses the importance of working as a collective unit of people rather than working on one's own tasks and forgetting the rest. As an intern for several months, I was able to collaborate with a number of people in different projects from recruitment to website design to general assistance to Pamela. On the NGO side, UniversalGiving provides to a score of different missions worldwide. They set goals to assist the missions in an effective and timely manner. I highly recommend UniversalGiving!

Today is my last day working as an intern at UniversalGiving, where I have worked at for three months as a Product Development Intern. Despite a lack of some important skills needed to help develop our website, I was still able to work in the PD team and across UG in general; I even did mission critical work on our company server. I was able to carry out this work due to UG's openness in accepting interns of different backgrounds and skill levels.

I've been volunteering with UniversalGiving for the last few months. Today is my last day actually and I have to say it has been an incredible experience. The people are really nice and take what they do very seriously. I know who I will definitely be donating through in the future.
