Get Out and Give Back

A friend of mine, Jane Hess Collins, has launched an organization called Get Out and Give Back, to encourage people to do just that in whatever ways interest them in their own communities. Jane also practices what she encourages others to do, and so she spent last Friday at our local day shelter, called David's Place. Her account of it can be read at: Having been a volunteer and board member at its host organization, Carpenter's Shelter, I was really interested in Jane's insights. So few people who want to volunteer take the time to "walk in the shoes" of others, as Jane did. I encourage you to bookmark her blog and stay tuned to what Jane is learning as she inspires people to contribute in whatever ways make sense to them. Jane is a good example of Connective Change, working with purpose and harmony.
