giving to others really benefits the giver so what I'm doing is as much for me as it is for my audience.

Mississauga (PRWEB) December 27, 2007

Entrepreneurs around the globe are trading in their business suits for comfort clothes and pajamas and raising glasses of good cheer as American master marketer Alex Mandossian and SmartStart CEO Linda Lopeke, a Canadian, reveal their plans for making a big difference in the world one small pledge at a time.

The partners are launching the SmartStart Giving program with a virtual pajama party hosted by Mandossian December 27, 2007 at 6 pm PST / 9 pm EST. The internet-based micro-fundraising program helps thousands of people contribute in small ways that make a big difference in others' lives around the world in support of Clinton's Global Initiative. All without having to dress up, leave home, worry about drinking and driving, or pay for any fancy dinners or venues.

Every dollar raised goes where party goers direct it: to Kiva.org (where micro-loans are made to entrepreneurs in the developing world to empower them to lift themselves out of poverty) or to SmartStart Mentoring Program scholarships (where young people learn the social intelligence skills and mental mastery needed to quickly make the most of a Fortune 500 career).

Mandossian and Lopeke are offering party goers opportunities to receive as well as give in keeping with their beliefs reciprocity is the foundation of great giving.

"Simple acts have the power to overcome tremendous challenges," says Lopeke, "there's no shortage of work to do or need in the world." Mandossian openly admits "giving to others really benefits the giver so what I'm doing is as much for me as it is for my audience." Those who take action by participating in the SmartStart Giving program will be well rewarded for their commitment to help others' business and career dreams come true.
