Stories | SHARE Charlotte

Some call it stories. Others call it a blog. But here you'll find nuggets of goodness to use and -- you guessed it -- SHARE!

You, and the Fabric of the Universe

It's a sunshine-filled morning in May and I'm in a conference room with some highly committed, energized volunteer managers from local non-profits. We're getting their thoughts and suggestions about some of the changes coming with SHARE 2.0. 

On my left is Lynn Miller with Eagle Rock Camp, a small non-profit serving veterans. Her volunteer needs are relatively small but highly specific. To my right is Henry Justice with Blumenthal Performing Arts. They have over 500 volunteers serving in a wide range of roles. 

Making Connections Easy

Sometimes the hardest part of connecting is getting started. When Chris Manley was searching for a way to honor the passing of a co-worker's family member, he wasn't sure where to begin. He decided to start with SHARE Charlotte. 

"I started by looking for non-profits who work with kids. I was drawn to the idea of helping out a child in honor of another life being cut short," explained Chris. "I am a musician, and my co-worker is an artist, so I went the arts and culture direction." 

After scrolling through some of the great non-profits on SHARE Charlotte, Chris came across Community School of the Arts. From there, it was as simple as clicking on the "donate" button.
