Speaker Series: A Conversation with Julie Burton

Join us on Wednesday, November 6 at Finnegan’s Brew Co to hear from Julie Burton, mother, author and Founder of ModernWell.

At this fully-inclusive event, you will be able to network with the Twin Cities’ next generation of leaders and learn from Julie Burton, a local freelance writer, blogger, author, yoga instructor, mom of four and founder of ModernWell. ModernWell is a co-operative space in Minneapolis centered around women for work, writing and wellness.

The Speaker Series is a quarterly event designed for young professionals, by young professionals to engage community leaders in entrepreneurship, wellness and other topics that are important in creating and maintaining a successful career.

Volunteers will be in charge of registration and hold various event support roles. If roles are completed before the event is over, volunteers will be able to stick around for the rest of the event.


Give to the Max Day

Get involved & celebrate Minnesota’s favorite giving day with us by investing in inclusive communities on Thursday, November 14!

GiveMN links donors with organizations that are working to make Minnesota a better
place. Its online giving website, GiveMN.org, enables charitable giving any time and
any place, allowing people to donate with ease and enthusiasm. GiveMN brings
innovation, energy and fresh ideas to Minnesota generosity.

Thanks to a very generous anonymous donor, we have a $25,000 matching gift! For every dollar you donate, it will be doubled up to $25,000. Double the donation, double the impact!

Champions & heroes event

Join Paul’s Pals for our annual #GivingTuesday celebration as we celebrate our Champions (major donors) and honor our Heroes (grantees) on Tuesday, December 3. Volunteer shifts are from 4:00pm-8:00pm.

#GivingTuesday is an annual global day of giving on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Designed in conjunction with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, this movement allows others to help through the gift of their time, donations, goods or voice. Since 2012, the global giving community has donated over $1 billion to causes on #GivingTuesday.

Join Paul’s Pals as we highlight the direct impact of the projects your efforts support. Our Champions & Heroes work together to fund, support and build inclusive communities. These are the stories of how we change lives of children with disabilities, together.

We’re looking for volunteers to help with general event support during the event and sponsors to help us make this a memorable event to all! Sound like something you’re interested in? Great! Click the links below to get started.
