Giving Back

What does it mean to you to give back? Does it mean to return what you do not want or does it mean to give a little of yourself for something you believe in?

Hopefully all of us think of this as giving of ourselves to others.

The next few weekends are full of opportunities to give back. Of course the Adopt a Highway clean up will happen this Saturday, The Walk for Animals is happening, Benefits in Seattle for the Neighborhood House, next week is the Breast Cancer walks, there are cats to be rescued in Minneapolis, the Vision Charity Jump, the list goes on and on.

We watch the news reports and read the paper about all the ways to give back, but how many of us get off the couch and do something about it?

Summer is here and that means a lot of opportunity to get up and give back. Find something you are passionate about and volunteer to help. Just think what 3 hours of your time in May will mean to someone who has little time! That is less than a half of a half percent of all the time available to do something good for someone else.

Share with the blog how you will give back less than .5% of your time this month?

For me: 6 hours of cleaning up a highway on Saturday.
