WE'RE GOING TO DISNEYLAND!! We got our quilts done and turned in to the "Project Linus" chairperson, and sure enough, HandsOn Network emailed vouchers for each of us to spend a free day at Disneyland. And six more children in our local hospital will have a warm hug from each of us.
They want to inspire one million people to give a day of service in their communities. According to their website today http://www.disneyparks.com/, there are still 130 volunteer opportunities in our area ranging from painting a sidewalk to collecting water bottles for Haiti to helping shelve cans for the Utah Charities Co-op to helping with Bingo Wednesdays at a Hospice Center. Some great opportunities for families or youth groups.
Then comes the feeling...um... isn't the idea for charity work to do it anonymously? The reward is in the doing, right?....... We can always donate our vouchers to a designated charity organization....... Ah, heck! Disneyland is going to be great!
