We need YOU!

Nowadays we are so overloaded with work and our social commitments that we very rarely can make time for “yet another thing”. We would rather give our money than our time and that is sad but true. No wonder that wherever you look there are organizations dying at the vine for folks showing up volunteering their time. This thought occurred to me looking at recent Odyssey of the Mind, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Church, car club rallies, tag football, and a few other events.
I have no way of gauging if volunteerism overall is down. My call to action though is to pick a cause that is worthy dedicating your time to and making the effort of showing up. Choose your time wisely, but all sorts of organizations are counting on volunteers to actually making a physical appearance. Second best is sending in your money – but does that actually make great memories?
