Intro Post

Hi there!
Thanks for joining this community. I am excited for our future!

Does anyone have any ideas for things to be added to (or edited in) our profile and interests? A better idea for the layout? I know this hearts and daisies thing is a little silly.
Any other questions, comments, suggestions, etc?

Feel free to introduce yourself and talk about your volunteering experiences, hopes, searches, ideas, and so forth!

As for me, so far i am volunteering with Horizons for Homeless Children with their PAL program, which involves going into a shelter once a week and playing with kids for two hours. it is both challenging and rewarding. I have been doing this for 19 months.
I also do a lot of fundraising through firstgiving.com, which is amazing. i like to use my birthday as a fundraising opportunity. last year i did this: http://www.firstgiving.com/raya3 and this year i am doing this: http://www.firstgiving.com/raya_palindrome

I am also hoping to help Alex raise money to be able to afford a wheelchair. Info here: http://www.myspace.com/makememobile
I've been doing a little research on trying to set up a benefit show or other event for this, and i would appreciate any help, ideas, advice, etc.

My big dream is to one day use resources such as couchsurfing.com, wwoof.org, and rideshares to travel around the U.S. and the world volunteering.
I would also like to do some official programs, but as i am not able to afford college, i am on the lookout for groups that do not require or prefer you to either have a degree.

So, that is it for now for me. How about you?

I volunteered at the Nokesville Neighborhood Library from September 1998 until January 2005.

I've checked and it doesn't look like BPL does volunteering. *le sigh*
