I’m stoked that this Saturday, January 26th from 10a-12p, a group of volunteers will join me and my daughters to volunteer at Cradles to Crayons Chicago. We still have some spaces available, so click this link and sign up to join us.
Cradles to Crayons is nationally known for their great work of collecting donations and preparing them for children in need. What I love about working with them, is their cool facility. I feel like I’m shopping at Ikea or something…but without spending money…and actually doing something good for someone else. LOL
When I became a mom, I always wanted to find more opportunities for families to volunteer. Often times, there were age restrictions (rightfully so) and I couldn’t provide my daughters with volunteer experience. Instead, we would bake cookies for neighbors and write thank you notes to the mail carrier person. That worked but I continue to think about moms who still want to serve, even if they have a baby hanging from their back.
Anyways, I’ll bring the coffee and donuts, you bring yourself and your family. Hope to see you Saturday!
