Volunteer/Charity/Christmas Eve

Update:  2008

This year, perhaps what we need to do is look around us.  Who in our small field is in need of help and can’t or won’t say so?

Is there a way to help those within our circle, then enabling them to help others, and so on and so on?

Keep your eyes open, help is needed when and where it is least expected.

May God bless you all.

Update: November 2007 (original 2006 post follows below):

For volunteer opportunities, try: Don’t Almost Give Organization.

The site is full of a variety of ways to donate time or money or supplies, take a few minutes and look around and see what may work for you.


Update: (December 2006)

simple search on netscape: salvation army & volunteer…………..
one search and there we go, millions of opportunities to help………..

November 2006: Original post:

We have spent the last two hours looking for local organizations that may need help on Christmas Eve. We googled our zipcode, nothing came close. We then proceeded to use a bunch of innovative and unique word combinations to get back a hit we were looking for, simply:

spend our time on Christmas Eve to help others…

We have told our family, anyone that wants to see us on Christmas Eve, can come hang and help wherever we find people needing help; problem is, we can’t find out on Google….

anyone have a list, a group looking for help in localities?
