These amazing people have enthusiastically come together to serve the mission of Simon Says Give with their individual passions and talents. Because of them, there are tens of thousands of children that benefit from Simon Says Give. We love our board! Please take time to meet them.

FOUNDING PRESIDENT & CHAPTER MENTOR
Simon Eber, 18, founded the Worcester chapter in 2016 while attending eighth grade at Forest Grove Middle School. Looking to honor the concept of “tikkun olam” (performing acts of kindness to repair the world), he wanted to give back and make a difference in his city and the Simons welcomed him. In his five years as president, the Worcester chapter provided 2100+ middle school backpacks filled with supplies, celebrated 180+ kids, and generated more than 2,500 youth volunteer hours (in addition to his own). Simon plays guitar in several rock bands, climbs competitively and works at a rock climbing gym, and eats everything he possibly can. He is a first-year student at Brandeis University, where he holds a Humanities Fellowship.
Jim Eber has nearly three decades experience in public relations, marketing, and collaborating on books and projects with personalities and brands across a variety of consumer and business areas. He has been directly involved in the launch of 14 New York Times bestsellers and has been the writer on more than twenty books in business and food. Not surprisingly, people find him much more interesting when he is writing about chocolate than management—including his wife and son who he supported in the launch of Simon Says Give in Worcester.

Dedicating her downtime to understanding the ways of nature and how to preserve it, Brooklyn is a member of Mass Audubon and the Audubon Society.
