Mike & Julie Signorelli
Mike and Julie have been doing nonprofit work for many years. They are Pastors at V1 Church in New York. When Mike grew up poor in Hammond, IN and had years without Christmas presents he wanted to help children remember that someone cares and someone sees them.
For many years Mike and Julie have served in the communities they have lived over the years. Since coming to New York they have found “HOME SWEET HOME.” On the weekends you can catch them at Brunch in Brooklyn (Julie’s favorite pastime) or playing with their two girls, Bella and Everly. id
Tony & Frances Pappalardo
Tony and Frances are performance coaches, entrepreneurs and leaders of the philosophy and movement Customize Your Life—how to live a more intentional life in alignment with your values.
Operation Impact was born out of a need for more contribution in their community. “One of the things we do is teach people how to better manage and grow their money… what was missing was what MORE they could do with it.
We wanted to create more opportunities for us to come together as a community and make radical impact!” When not leading change or finding ways to make a difference, Tony and Frances can be found bumming around in sweatpants or board shorts with their kids and/or surfboards.
We combined our efforts and assembled our core leadership team to create what we know today as Operation Impact. The organization set out on a big mission, to raise 100k in just two months to support families in need during the holiday season, and an even bigger vision, to inspire a generation to reimagine charity and social responsibility.
Four years later, with the help of more than 2000+ supporters, Operation Impact has raised just over half a million dollars to fund five highly impactful projects.
LEARN MORE ABOUT Our Story
When a group of industry leaders gets together, wild things can happen. In October of 2017, we challenged ourselves to raise 100k to provide hope in the form of gifts during the holiday season for families in need.
YES, you read that right…
We not only radically challenged ourselves to raise 100k in 2.5 months, but that also meant we had to find the families and handle all the logistics too.
Well… we fell short of our goal. But hey! 80k for 80 families wasn’t too bad. And what was even better was that it set us into motion to create the movement that is known today as Operation Impact!
Operation Impact is about raising the bar on generosity. It’s about challenging ourselves to think radically about the difference we can make and then making it happen. It’s about inspiring a generation to reimagine charity and embrace social responsibility. So far we have raised over $300k+ , mobilized over 2000 volunteers, given 1000+ kids the gift of hope, and are sending a most deserving family on a $15K+ dream come true trip to Disney Land! And we’re just getting started.
We want to challenge you today to try out our blend of radical generosity with the community and join one of our projects today! Have a wild idea? Let’s think radically and make things happen.
