50 Ways to Stay United and Give Back

From Georgetown University

Alumnus Mark Svensson (C’12) and his wife Ismini Svensson are traveling across the United States to perform “50 Acts of Giving Back.”

“We decided to establish StayUNITED because we believe that as human beings, what we have in common is more important than our differences," said Mark Svensson.

 StayUNITED is a non-profit organization with the mission to improve the quality of life in local communities and empower individuals worldwide.

 The organization promotes the importance of serving others by “fostering partnerships, conducting charitable initiatives, and implementing volunteer opportunities."

 "What we have in common is more important than our differences. All our actions, no matter how seemingly insignificant, influence the progress of our world. Every kindness, every moment of empathy and compassion, every act of true sharing, elevates humanity's potential," reads the website, StayUNITED.
