After a brief hiatus, I am continuing my Project 31 today.
Be sure to check out Mandy @ She Breathes Deeply. She is the creator of Project 31 and is pretty awesome.
She also went into labor yesterday with her first baby girl, Lily Beloved. Be prepared for baby cuteness.
I am not going to go into depth today about needs that need to be met in my community, as my community is no different than any other community, and this needs need to be met throughout the nation, not just my community. They are:
- hunger - look into doing a food drive and taking the food you raised to local homeless shelters.
- children - look into volunteering to mentor young children that might not otherwise have a positive role model during this crucial time of their life
- teenagers - look into mentoring a young adult. You could prevent them from being another statistic that has dropped out of school, or got pregnant
- homeless - maybe carry around extra Bibles or gift certificates to McDonald's or other fast food restaurants, that way if you don't feel comfortable giving money (which I try not to do) you can give GC's for food.
- animals - look into volunteering at your local animal shelter. They are ALWAYS in need of walkers, foster parents, etc. They also always need donations of food & litter. Look into planning a drive to get these items and donate in bulk.
- Less fortunate - variety of ideas, for girls in high school, hold a dress project in which you collect donated formal gowns for those that can't afford a gown for high school dances. Collect old Christmas trees and decorations to donate to those looking for decorations around Christmas time. Do a clothing collection and collect clothes to donate in bulk to a shelter.
There are SO many needs that need to be met all around. The biggest need is just people willing to make a difference. You can do any of the above things, and so much more. If you don't know where to start, GOOGLE. It's a friend of mine. You can google and find almost anything.
