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're Already Home

Written by Admin    on July 23, 2013

When I was a kid we moved from one side of town to another. Not a long distance, but close enough to a city bus stop so that my mom's commute to work would be much easier. Still, it seemed like a major move to a 7 year old. To help us get used to the idea, every time our travels  took us past our soon-to-be new neighborhood, Mom would say "See? If we lived there we would already be home."

The same thing applies to joining us at SHARE Charlotte. If the words "join" or "sign up" sound like a process or a chore...trust me, it's not. The distance between you and full access to SHARE's growing Collection of Good is literally a few keystrokes. 

 

Find Your Bliss...

Volunteering in Charlotte? Here are three steps to make sure it's a perfect fit:

1. Find your passion. You've heard it before - but it's true. You're going to invest time into this gig, so it needs to be something you really believe in. 

2. Consider the time you have available. Once you know "who" you want to help (kids, animals, etc.), decide how much time you have to give. No matter if it's a lot or a little, there's an organization out there that will be thrilled to have you on board.

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.
