Welcome to our blog. We decided to do this blog as a way to share our volunteering adventures and get more people involved with volunteering. We volunteer regularly throughout the year, finding time whenever we can. It's a great way to get out of the house, meet new people, and be a helpful part of society.
Volunteering doesn’t have to be boring or be forced on you. It can actually be a lot of fun, especially when you do it with friends and family. The key is to volunteer doing something you like to do. If you’re the outdoorsy type, volunteer with your local park service, plant some flowers to beautify your neighborhood. Do you like to read? Help someone learn how to read. Believe it or not you don’t have to volunteer at big organizations, although there are a lot to choose from. There are a lot of places and people that need volunteers, maybe even your neighbor. The point is to help.
No matter what you do, we hope that you will join us. All you really need to do is post pictures to your social media sites, telling everyone where you volunteered and of course don’t forget #volunteermarathon. If you need some help check out our Start Line, it’s a great place to get started.
