Put a Little Love in Your Heart

Between the post-holidays blues, the cold weather, and of course, the horrors of the Arizona shootings, I could use a little more love right now. And what better way to achieve that than by getting out of my little cave of a bedroom, putting on some pants, and spending time doing something for someone else.

The coolest volunteer opportunity came along this morning, and I jumped at the chance. In honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, there will be service projects taking place all over DC this weekend. One of the groups I'm involved with got the most awesome project--helping sort and organize the children's section of one of the big DC libraries. I can't think of a more fun way to give back to the community!

And, it's open to anyone who wants to help! So, if you're in DC and are free for a few hours on Saturday morning, let me know if you want to come help out by sending an email at thenonstudent (at) gmail (dot) com, and I'll give you the details. Hope to see some of you there!

  2. Well, we've got a coincidence on our hands here. I'm going to be at that same service project. :-) I don't think I'd recognize you, but perhaps you'd introduce yourself?

  4. That sounds fun. If I didn't have to work tomorrow, volunteering would be a great way to spend part of the day.
