I think that there are certain times in your life when it is easier to get involved in your community than others; when you are a student, there are countless student groups offering you free food and goodies to join, and when you are a parent, by the nature of most activities you have a quasi-group of parents who have to attend and volunteer at the same things that you do. However, many of us don’t fall into either of those groups, and I think that that is the best time to get involved and make a difference! And yes, it benefits your community, but it also benefits you…
My favourite time of the year is the holiday season, mostly because I think that it is a warm and cozy time of year that rejuvenates all of us in some way or another. However, there are many people who might not have a support system or family of any sort there for them. I think that the number one most important aspect of the holidays is giving back and paying it forward, and The Shoebox Project is a fantastic way to do that. Women in need are often left in the shadows, and this is the perfect way to reach out and help!
Huskitude was back at it again- we reformed for Paws in Motion 2016! Paws in Motion 2015 was so much fun that we had to come back again. The Winnipeg Humane Society is a wonderful organisation, and I respect everything that they do. The WHS does a great deal for the animals and people of Winnipeg, and I’m lucky to be able to volunteer as a Rabbit Wrangler! This walk, however, gives us all a chance to bring the dogs out and get in a good walk. Continue reading
I am thankful that the other members of Junior Circle are as passionate about philanthropy as I am. Our chapter doesn’t do a lot of philanthropy events, and hasn’t in the seven years since I pledged. (Eep, I’m getting on in years.) We find different ways to give back and make a difference in our communities- to several different causes. Continue reading
I am very thankful that my fellow Junior Circle members are willing to do different philanthropic activities! Continue reading
Today is a double post! Two seemingly unrelated things: 1) I have been trying to make buttercream frosting for I don’t know how long, and 2) February 14-20 is Alpha Gamma Delta’s First Week of Service! To begin with the buttercream: Continue reading
Earlier this week Junior Circle meet to assemble our boxes for the Shoebox Project. Alpha Gamma Delta had really instilled in me the idea that giving back to the community should be one of your top priorities, and the Shoebox Project allows us to give back to women specifically.
As 85th was two weeks ago, Junior Circle is still slowly recovering from the months-long period of insanity! And I have to say, we are doing fairly well. Continue reading
Yesterday was one of the best Mondays in my memory of twenty-something years. Why, you ask??
Alpha Gamma Delta has been fantastic to me in more than one way, but I think that the most important way is showing me that philanthropy can take many different forms. In 2015, we are fairly fortunate and I think that we can all give back, in one way or the other! Continue reading
