Welcome to Day One of my Thirty Days of Service!! I am so excited to share this journey with you and am so thankful that you are here. Over the next 30 days, I will share with you my journey completing 30 service projects with 30 organizations in 30 days! My intent is simple, to inspire you to get involved serving others. I hope to also entertain you a bit and look forward to sharing with you what I do and learn every day.
Thanks again…now on to Day One…
Activity: Reading “The Cat in the Hat”
I say all the time that man plans and God laughs. Well, that certainly appeared to be the case today.
As I have been planning my days of service over the past couple of months, I have run into many challenges — finding 30 things to do in 30 days with 30 different organizations isn’t easy! I have had calls and emails go unreturned, I have looked into organizations that just didn’t really meet some basic requirements and have scheduled and rescheduled many of my days so that I could ensure they would all get booked. I have also been trying to anticipate potential challenges that could arise once I start my 30 days — what do I do if something gets canceled or I can’t find a project for a day? But, I truly didn’t think I would run into a challenge on Day One…but, I did! And, fortunately I had a backup plan…
