Although we're all beyond busy during the Holidays, I think it's super-important to find time to give back to the community, pitch in and generally do good.
Here's what I've been up to :
-Last week I sewed labels on 20 cut-and-tied fleece blankets for Project Linus (and there were TONS more that others made and labeled - go PL 'Blanketeers'!)
-I helped load a big-rig with lots of bikes and helmets for a local non-profit called Turning Wheels for Kids (although I can't volunteer at their 'bike build' on Saturday now because DH has to go to Seattle. Boo.).
-And, I helped sort a mountain (no kidding) of toys for the group Toys for Tots.
All of this volunteering only took a couple of hours of my time, but was so fun and rewarding. In addition, I am making an effort to be more kind to my friends, family...and myself. I know I could do more to give back, but at least it's a start.
Sooo... In the spirit of the Season and inspiring others to "do good" I am thinking a giveaway is in order!
THE DETAILS: Just leave a comment below telling me what you've done to give back, OR something nice you are planning to do, OR a link to your favorite charity or non-profit organization. Please be sure to leave your email address. I'll select a winner, at random, next Monday morning 12/13/2010. Do good ... and good luck!
