Day 12 of Callie's #trynewthingseveryday campaign!
Now, this one is fairly new to me. Helping to organize and put on a charity event with over 250 attendees, 190 + purses/totes up for auction, and hosting a celebrated speaker isn't really a skill that I've kept in my wheelhouse, sooo today was pretty darn new to me.
#Volunteering my skills for a non-profit on a consistent basis is some of the most rewarding work I've ever done. Now, do I always want to dedicate my time/resources to make that happen? Of course not. I am a human, I have a sometimes selfish ego, and IM FRICKEN BUSY. But when slap myself, and refocus, I see how absolutely thrilling and rewarding volunteering is for me. How cool I feel when I'm contributing to a cause that just cares so deeply about Humanity and each and every person seeking counseling for a variety of things including mental health . .
SO here is my advice for the day (oooh no hear she goes again 😎) if you want to volunteer---find a cause you are passionate about. Find a cause that just pulls at your heartstrings. You can't do EVERYTHING, and I'm sorry but you're probably not going to save the world all by yourself, but giving your time-- money-- or effort and creativity towards a movement, charity, fundraiser, or program will light you up. And not to mention is RIDICULOUSLY good karma :) so find something your passionate about. Decide HOW you want to help out, and just do it. They need you more than you will ever know. #volunteersrock #doitforthecause #giveback #karma #lifelongduty #lovethyneighbor #helpthemout ✌️✌️✌️✌️🙌❤️
