Are you looking for a good opportunity to serve? I found an incredible website To help you get started.  It's called volunteermatch.org. We have quite a few Mumsies that visit our blog from out of state & this site is full of different ways to serve all over the country. Another site you should check is idealist.org. There, you can post opportunities or discover new ones!

 There is also dosomething.org as well. You can even text "Do Something" to 38383 & have suggestions sent right to your phone. On their website, they list the "Top 11 reasons to take action". Here is what they say...
  1. To learn something about yourself.
  2. Maybe you’re like a pied-piper in disguise! Kids may ADORE you, but maybe you’ll only find that out after you spend an afternoon every week mentoring a youngster.

  3. To have fun!
  4. Volunteer doing something you love, and it will be amazing!

  5. Because you’re passionate about a cause.
  6. You always loved animals, so naturally you want to work at an animal hospital. Volunteer and be involved in something you really care about!

  7. To explore career possibilities.
  8. Maybe you’re heading to (or are already in) college or the ‘work world’. By volunteering at your local hospital you can find out if you’re interested in going into the medical field by studying to become a doctor or nurse. Experience is key!

  9. It’s time to get off the couch.
  10. From the time you get home ‘til the time you go to bed, you park your lazy @*$! in front of the TV. Honestly. You know you’re bored with it. Be productive for a change!!

  11. Learn some new skills…and add them to your resume!
  12. You can learn a ton from volunteering, and what a great way to add stuff to your resume for future jobs or college applications!

  13. To fulfill graduation requirements.
  14. Maybe you need to volunteer for 50 hours in order to graduate. Awesome! Get out there and volunteer your time (and who knows, maybe you’ll do extra hours because it’s so awesome!)

  15. Make someone else’s day.
  16. Your extra little effort to help someone or some organization out can make a world of a difference to them.

  17. Volunteering looks REALLY good on college applications.
  18. It's ok, because we know the reason you want to go to an awesome college is so you can work at an awesome not-for-profit.

  19. Feel good about yourself!
  20. Know that, after volunteering, you did something great. Really great. Be proud of yourself. Heck, treat yourself to some ice cream.

  21. It’s time to DO SOMETHING!
  22. Apathy is boring.
     
 Just think about how many children will be spending Christmas in the hospital or mothers with little ones in a shelter. There may be people that aren't fortunate enough to make it to a soup kitchen to have a hot meal. There are so many reasons to sacrifice a few hours this winter season to give a little when you have a lot. Of course, the holidays are not the only we should be doing it, but this could be something to provide you & your loved ones some perspective.
 Hopefully, you can find a hospital, shelter, kitchen, or any other establishment in your area that needs extra hands. In my experience, there isn't always a need to look that far! There are neighbors, schoolmates, or even family members that might want help this season, but may be too afraid to ask. All I'm saying is that everyone could use a little extra this season, just make yourself available for opportunities to do more!
 What's your favorite charity & why? Help us spread the word on where you like to volunteer! Have a great week & please remember the folks that are in need!!

(Psst! We are hosting another giveaway this week!! Stay tuned!!)
