Not everyone has time or inclination to ‘volunteer’ – we get that. But now and then, you find an issue you just want to contribute to – in a small and short-term way. Or maybe you have a personal cause that you’d like to share with others. Or maybe – you just want to get together with a group of people to do something other than sit around and talk! Research shows that us folks over 55 are the most ‘volunteerish’ – but how much time and what we do with that time covers a big spectrum. The average volunteer activity takes up 2.2 hours of time – whether it is a ‘one and done’, or an average per month.
This event will feature panelists talking about their really incredible ‘small causes’ that have been started by folks just like you – the Denver Community Fridge Project, the Nappies Project and Denver Recreative – a creative reuse store and community art center. You will learn first-hand how these average folks started their initiative, and the results to date. Following this, you will learn about BLC’s upcoming Workshop Series – Projects with a Purpose. The three-part workshop series will give you the tools and strategies to design and organize your own initiative.
However, and wherever you are on the “enthusiasm meter” for a small project with a big purpose, you’ll come away inspired – and a disciple of the “Butterfly Effect”.
