Breaking News! UEnd Organization to Be the First-Ever Non-Profit to be U:Powered!

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 18, 2009) - UEnd (formerly ChristmasFuture) seeks to become the first ever non-profit organization that fully funds its operations from monthly contributions of just $5 from everyday people!

UEnd is all about empowering everyday people to end poverty. We each need to take responsibility for our world and play our role in ending poverty – hence our name: UEnd. At UEnd, we aim to help everyday folks change the world by refocusing a portion of their gift spending towards the poorest people in the world. 100% of the donations to projects at UEnd go directly to those projects. We put the money where you, the people, tell us you want it to go. No hidden percentage grabs for overhead.

Now we are using that same philosophy, the philosophy that Barack Obama used to win his US Presidential bid, to build our organization. UEnd will be U: Powered. Powered by the people, for the people!

The worlds' population is tired of waiting for institutions, governments, or the wealthy to do the right thing. The rich are feeling too poor these days to help out, and the everyday person still wants to play a role in changing the world in some significant way. The 5 dollar philanthropist wants to help make things right! Well, they don't have to wait any longer.

Right now you can go to our website to easily, quickly, and securely participate in this history-making shift in philanthropy. The growing trend in the non-profit sector is to engage small donations from many people to affect massive change. This is an innovative and inspired idea with endless potential! A big bucket of money is not all it takes to affect change on a global scale – we need the masses to be thinking about it and participating. This is it! Right here in our great city of Calgary we are setting out to make history! Let everyday people play a part!

For the price of a latte or pint each month, anyone with the desire to participate can fund the building of the UEnd organization, and thereby build the necessary foundation to realize our audacious goals. Think of it as taking us out for a latte or a pint once a month, feels great doesn't it?

We are looking for 10,000 people to play a part in this revolutionary approach to building a non-profit organization that seeks to end extreme poverty. You've talked this with your friends, family & coworkers, now's the time to get involved! We will provide complete information into the growth of the organization and the spending of the dollars that people invest in us.

Jay Baydala, Executive Director and Founder of UEnd says, "It's all about helping people do what they want to do. People want to make this world a better place; they just need personal choice, an easy method, and transparency into the spending. That's UEnd!"
