Volunteer ideas from Martha and her mom Shirley to share

Hi everyone.   I just wanted to share this email that I received from Martha and her mom Shirley with some great volunteer ideas.  Thanks so much for writing in and  sharing with all of us.

Hi Sophie!

I just wanted to send a note to thank you for the volunteer ideas and info on your site, our family is getting a lot of inspiration from it! We educate our children from home and this month we have been learning about compassion, gratefulness, and helping others in need. We decided that we wanted to participate in more community service projects as a family and in our search for inspiration we stumbled onto your page here: http://dreambigsophie.org/volunteer-resources/

It’s been tough finding non-spammy sites for the kids so you have our thanks! Plus you gave us some great ideas to brainstorm. As a token of our thanks we wanted to share some of the service project ideas we had thanks to your page and a few other sites like https://lancaster.unl.edu/4h/serviceideas.shtml which has a lot of good suggestions. 

Our oldest daughter Martha found a great list of service project ideas that lists some organizations that accept donations from all over the country. It gave us some great ideas for household items we could start collecting to donate like jeans and shoes. Plus it lists some resources for making care packages which is something we are really interested in. (link below)

Hopefully you like it too! Maybe you might even find it useful for your page? If you do I’ll be sure to show the family you liked her find. I love sharing so if you ever have any needs or cool project ideas please feel free to pass them along. Sorry for rambling- thanks again and have a wonderful day!

Blessings and well wishes,

Shirley  (Craig, Martha, Mia, Steve)
