Enjoy the View
Another Missouri pic, this was my view from the window seat on the flight out. My first flight ever. It was pretty cool watching the sun set from above the clouds.
Tomorrow night I'm volunteering at Dream Night at the Stone Zoo. It is a free, after-hours event for chronically ill and disabled children and their families and caregivers. I will be doing the photography. I can't wait for this event. I've often wanted to volunteer with the Make-a-Wish foundation and this event is a similar event. I am a member of Boston Cares which is an organization that offers tons of volunteer events on a calendar system that I can pick and choose and sign up for whenever I am available. I haven't been doing it very long and this will be only my 3rd event so far with them but I love it. It's so flexible and they offer so many wonderful events. If you're looking for a great way to get in some volunteer time that works with your schedule, definitely check out Boston Cares.
So far I have volunteered at the Hoop-a-thon for Huntington's Disease and the Special Olympics. Both events were really fun, I got to meet new people and do some great volunteer work. I'm a big fan of volunteering, if you couldn't tell!! I also donated the design for this year's MSPCA Angel Walk for Animals which I will be walking in on September 7th (let me know if you want to walk too!). I like to go and work at events but I'm also always available to do design or photography work for any organization. I'm also volunteering at this year's Gluten-Free Cooking Spree on September 13th and I am really looking forward to that event.
If you're interested in volunteering at any of these events, or would like more information about Boston Cares or other volunteer opportunities, please feel free to contact me!
