These journal notes are getting more difficult as I must decide whether to add a new one or sleep.
PAST: CHARITY -I’ve always believed in you’ve gained something you should give something back. That is why I’ve donated time and monies to various charities in my life that I believe can make a difference. The first charity I donated to was the North Shore Animal League because of my love of dogs and concern with the way they are treated.It is quite an eclatic group of charities that I have donated to from Amnesty International to the Local Boyscouts. I feel that it is important to play a role in making people’s lives better wherever you can.
I have volunteered for many different organizations. I spent many Sunday’s volunteering at St Francis Soup Kitchen in NYC but in an unusual role. I was the one who helped these individuals try to find employment. It was disconcerning to see how few people actuallly went up to my table looking for work. The most enjoyable volunteer work that I did was for an organization called NY Cares. NY Cares enabled to take disadvantegious children to various events and locations so as the Bronx Zoo or Roller Skating. My family has gone to a local Senior Citizen Center and the VA Hospital to give out small gifts on Christmas Day. We also went to Costa Rica to work at an orphanage. This Christmas I volunteered at “Meals For Wheels” and was shocked to find out how many people in my community went hungry on a daily basis.
PRESENT/YESTERDAY – I got my daughter a beautiful business outfit for a competition she has today for DECA. I put together many bids including one for 20,000 smoke alarms going to Japan. I’ve been working to develop a plan for PPC , a short that should be produced this Sunday and my Birthday Bash.
FUTURE: I’d like to get involved in a charity that works on insuring basic freedom for all G-D’s children.
