Growing Pains

Hello readers,

You might have stumbled on this site through a google search, or perhaps you were trying to reach giveandgetevents.com and were re-directed here. In any case, welcome. Have a seat.

This site has been up for four years now and continues to prove itself as a solid resource for people looking to volunteer in New York City. Last year, I attempted a spin-off of sorts called Give & Get Events, which was dedicated solely to the sharing of non-profit events, fundraisers, and group projects. And in keeping with the tradition of spin-offs, it didn’t really work out so well. It split my readership and just generally didn’t function as well as I wanted it to. I was disappointed but it was a learning experience that will ultimately benefit you all- my readers!

For that reason, I’ve decided to reassess and rebuild Give & Get NYC. In a few short weeks, you’ll be seeing a new site that will include the best of both worlds: that wacky spin-off character you loved (G&G Events) will play a bigger role-with all your favorite characters from the original G&G NYC- and end it’s solo career. The “Spotlight Series” of interviews, non-profit highlights, and event reviews will continue to add depth to the site, and an events calendar on the front page will be chock full of do-good fun times submitted by NYC non-profits themselves.

I’m sorry I strayed, but I hope you’ll stick around to see the final product. In the meantime, a less-cool-but-still-totally-functional event calendar has been added to the sidebar on the right so that no one missed out on the spring gardening projects, fundraisers, and volunteer opportunities. Please email giveandgetnyc@gmail.com to add events, get in touch, offer words of wisdom, support, or ask questions.

My Best,

Rachel

Founder, Give and Get NYC
