Hey guys! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! I actually had a very enjoyable experience this morning mountain biking with kids in need for a local program called, "Trips for Kids Charlotte." Volunteer programs and charities unfortunately don't get a lot of press coverage but they are very much out there. In fact, I already have over 60 listed here: http://www.diigo.com/list/projectchange/organizations. Just know that if you want to help out, it is very much possible. You may only have to do a little searching but it is well worth it. If you ever want recommendations, check out the list linked above, email me, or click on Special Features above for the weekly winners. It's not as hard and time-consuming as one may think (admittedly I did) to become a do-gooder in one's community. Most of the events I do are only an hour or two with great variety. Once again the Hands On Networks are an awesome way to get started as well as Volunteer Match. Both of these resources are nationwide, as well, but you can limit your search to your local area. Therefore, I'm dedicating this month to all the volunteers and organizations that truly do make a difference in our world. You all rock!
