We're Proud to Announce Our Participation in #GivingTuesday 2018!


do-over.me Joins the Global #GivingTuesday Movement Pledging to Raise $5,555 for its 5th Anniversary!

 Geneva, IL November 1, 2018– do-over.me has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.

 Donations for do-over.me will be accepted online at https://www.ilgive.com/organizations/do-over-me.  

 Occurring this year on November 27, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.  

 As do-over.me approaches our fifth anniversary we are also anticipating welcoming our five hundredth member to our tribe. In order to continue to deliver the necessary support to individuals who are searching for meaningful employment, we need your help.

 With your help in raising this money you can subsidize the success of eleven new members. For details on how this breaks down, please visit https://www.ilgive.com/organizations/do-over-me.  

 When we first met Mary Z., she was a single mom, about to lose her steady job of 17-years. She was clueless about what to do next, let alone how to do it. The world of work and job hunting had changed. Together, our coaching team helped Mary to navigate the changes. She found success.  Mary said, "Without you I would still be sitting in a dark basement binge-watching Netflix!” 

 Marcela moved, legally, from a central American country with her husband and two teenage children in search of better opportunities. Because her English was the strongest, Marcela was up first to figure out what she really wanted to do now that she was here. Through our proprietary First Things First program, she discovered strengths and opportunities she never realized existed. Marcela said, “It was eye-opening for me.”

 do-over.me was founded by Cynthia Kay Wade in March 2014. It is Kane County’s premiere nonprofit career coaching center. Wade’s prior experience includes 11 years as a third-party corporate recruiter in the high-power business world of Chicago. When the recession hit, Wade lost her job in a company-wide re-org. Inspired by seeing so many talented, professionals suddenly left jobless, Wade began do-over.me as a way to help people whose lives had turned upside down.
