48 Hours of the Power of One

On Tuesday October 23rd Mark Malkoff volunteered for 48 hour straight at the Afya Foundation in Yonkers, NY. Afya Foundation put Mark to work by sorting medical supplies, receiving incoming donations, training new volunteers, answering phones, preparing a shipment bound for Ghana, and even cleaning the bathrooms!

Malkoff decided to partner with Afya Foundation to draw attention to the importance of volunteering and the work their foundation has been doing. “We have done lots of crazy things over the years,” said Malkoff, “but this experience was bigger than us.” “Never underestimate the power of one. Everyone can make a difference in the life of another,” said Danielle Butin, Founder, CEO. “The volunteer’s hands are the last to touch the supplies before they are delivered and unpacked by providers abroad. The invisible life-saving hand off is a beautiful and powerful one. And we are so excited that through Mark Malkoff we will be offering this opportunity to so many more through the 48 Hour Power of One Sort-A-Thon!”


Will power was all it took for Mark Malkoff and his wife Christine to undertake a project of world changing proportions. See how they managed to stay awake and volunteer for 48 hours straight!
