I will volunteer with at least one organization that supports efforts to aid active military personnel, veterans and/or their families. It’s the least I can do for those who have given so much to me as an American. God bless the USA for a better 2011!
To share the knowledge I gained last year in my volunteer escapades to show others how fun it is. This way, instead of leading one event myself, I can coach more leaders to lead more events. And so on…and so on… This way, showing how each person can make such a big difference just by doing or sharing a little. I’ve seen it happen and I am forever changed for the better. Enjoy everyone!
As I continue my committment to the volunteer work that I do I will make a new committment to myself. I will take the time for meditation and daily wellness rituals so that I can continue the very exciting work of opening a mental health drop-in center. These daily rituals will include eating a healthy diet and getting excercise regularly. I am needed and it is important that I take my volunteer committment seriously by taking care of myself first.
My resolution for 2011 is to show more initiative, to lend a helping to others without them coming to me for help first. I also hope to take part in more volunteering activities to help those in need.
I resolve to volunteer more time with PAWS this year, offering my skills as an event planner and animal lover.
I resolve to find an non-profit organization (other than the one I work for) with a mission I feel strongly about and devote a minimum of 3 hours a month using my gifts/skills to provide meaningful support to the organization or directly to those it serves.
I am volunteering as a mentor with Bridge of Hope, which is an organization that supports women with children in recovering from homelessness
I pledge to continue to finding ways to make an impact by channelling the power of for-profit entities through the purpose non-profit one. I pledge to find the proper internship this summer that will give me the tools I need to approach this goal. I pledge to continue to find solutions to a common problem in uncommon ways. I pledge to work for CSSP and work specifically with 6th- 8th grades to be that impact to someone, which inspired me to keep going when I was probably in the darkest moments of my life. I pledge to give back to the community that I am apart of in any and every way that I can. I pledge to let every idea, that wakes me up to write in my note pad at 5am, to run wild because one of those dreams of finding a way is bound to come true one day…
