Kindness Revolution Day 26: Donate Your Talents and Skills
I truly believe that information is power.† I recently learned that a First Nations (the Canadian version of native Americans) community in the Clayoquot Sound region of Vancouver Island wanted to know more about its residents’ health.† So, I decided that my gift for today (and quite a few days leading up to today) would be to donate my health research and reporting.† I specifically reviewed cancer risks, health and population statistics, and lifestyle factors among the people of the community so that the region can implement educational programs that address the specific health concerns facing its people.† I was thrilled to see my skills serving such a worthwhile project.
Whatever your skills, experience, and talents, there is a community or organization that would be thrilled to have you donate them to its projects.† Pick something that has meaning for you and don’t be afraid to make a few phone calls or ask around in your community first.† Time is precious these days and many organizations couldn’t function without their volunteers.
If youíre just joining us for the Kindness Revolution, Iím trying to spread kindness in the world by giving 29 gifts in 29 days, inspired by the book 29 Gifts.† And, Iím asking you to join me.† If youíre just tuning in, check out the first blog in this series.† And, don’t forget that it’s never too late to join the Kindness Revolution.† Start today!
And, donít forget to add your comments to my blog because, with the help of the kind people at Care2.com, Iíll be giving away more free copies of my books† tomorrow!† Winners will be selected from the comments.
