No matter where you are, you can make a difference.
Just look around and find a cause to become passionate about,
I began organizing volunteer groups soon after Hurricane Katrina. I have watched our movement of community service grow and inspire others. I am proud of our progress and I owe it all to God.
People who are not directly affected by a crisis are unaware of its severity. This may sound obvious, but it's true. Without consistent, dedicated effort to rebuild after disaster strikes, communities remain in despair. Much like a fad or a trend, people's attention passes quickly. Out of sight, out of mind mentality, So hundreds of thousands of people are suffering from homelessness and hunger. Many with little or no resources. They struggle, and they will continue to struggle. Struggle to eat. Struggle to find jobs. To provide for their families. Kids without school. People without clean drinking water and adequate food. Families without electricity. Children without access to medical care. Enough problems to make your head spin. I believe each and every one of us should independently and collectively do more to combat these complex problems within our own communities and beyond. So why not start local?
