"I had the pleasure of working with Donald Ortale while launching a unique partnership between Major League Soccer and the Nothing But Nets campaign. Donald was instrumental in launching the partnership within the Chicago Fire family. In addition to his responsibility to the Fire, Donald was key in involving other sports teams and community leadership in the process. His ability to build coalitions is important to the success of community based initiatives."

"Donald's vision and his experience in philanthropy and social outreach lead
to an amazing growth to our campaign. He encouraged me to open the scope
and make our campaign broader, and not only did he help solidify our model, he
also assisted in the execution. I am certain that without Donald's vision,
Nothing But Nets wouldn't have reached as many people in the sports community.
He has been instrumental in NBN's expansive growth and a big reason we have
raised $24 million dollars and counting. I can't thank Donald enough for his
role in our growth and the success of our efforts."

"I would like to say thank you to Donald for being instrumental in my career. Although he did not get on the field and play for me he helped me reach out to people and grow my name as a player and a person. He showed me how influential professionals can be to so many peoples lives. He built confidence in myself to get out and speak in front of an audience. He took the time out of his personal days to connect me with people and organizations that believed in me as a person and the things I believed in.
Watching him work with the Fire Works For Kids Foundation was amazing. He never stops working and he is always looking for ways to build the foundation to be one of the best."
