Giving back does not always require money… you can volunteer your time, skills and give your love.
1. Join the #HastagLunchbag movement (see video below), make lunches for the homeless/hungry peeps in your community.
*I will be joining the #HashtagLunchbag movement next Saturday, Feb. 22nd with my Echoes of Hope volunteer group. Join us! Details are posted on Echoes of Hope’s Facebook page. Donations are welcome. Feel free to ask me any questions.
2. Walk, play and take selfies with pups looking for homes.
No Kill Los Angeles (NKLA) Animal Adoption Center is super clean, organized, and the staff is great.
Ask a local store for craft and decoration donations or gather a few friends that will pitch in.
4. Join a group walking/running for a cause or volunteer to help with event registration.
The Los Angeles Brain Tumor Walk is free to register, unlike most walk/runs. However, donations are accepted. Events like these count on volunteers to help with registration and setup, look for “volunteer” links on their websites.
The Great Urban Race is not free to register, but volunteers are needed at registration and scavenger hunt locations.
5. Help prepare care packages for the troops.
Operation Gratitude sends out 150,000+ care packages to military veterans, first responders, wounded warriors, care givers and U.S. service members deployed overseas. All supplies are provided, just show up ready to work.
