A new level of volunteerism: Washington, DC native Keith Donohue to travel the country giving back

‘Tis the season for giving, but come February a Washington, DC native will take it to a whole new level.

Keith Donohue, 32, who has fundraised for and promoted local nonprofits such as DC SCORES on many occasions, is preparing to take off on an ambitious mission of volunteering, volunteering some more, and then throwing in a little more, yes, volunteering.

Donohue is the founder of Positive Present – “an organization devoted to positive affirmations and making a positive impact through philanthropy” – and starting in February, he will embark on the organization’s first project called “50Give.”

Over the course of five to six months, Donohue will devote his time to helping nonprofits, charities and other worthy causes in all 50 states, as well as the District, Canada and Mexico.

“I have a passion for helping others and fundraising,” Donohue said. “I hope this trip will encourage others to give unconditionally and also provide positive awareness for inspiring organizations that strive to make this world better.”

While Donohue is helping thousands of others, he needs your help, too. Simply visit the 50Give website, where you can learn more and support the trip through financial contributions and sponsorships; food donations, accommodations; press/promotions; volunteer assistance; and, of course, charitable and nonprofit suggestions.
