Donating money isn’t the only way to give to charitable organizations, many of whom rely on volunteers for various services. If you find yourself with free time on your hands on your weekend, or during the week, you could consider putting in some community service. Not only will you help a good cause, but it can also be a way to meet people and learn new skills.
You want to get involved and give back to the community, but can’t fit another big commitment into your busy schedule? Then microvolunteering might just be the thing.
Microvolunteering is a small, bite-sized task or project, that is quick and easy to perform. Best of all there’s a range of things you could do online, in as little as 30 minutes. Donating processing time on your computer, signing an online petition, or promoting a charity on social media are all examples of microvolunteering that you could do today.
Abandoned since Hurricane Irma, the north shore of No Name Key sits idle, destroyed, and polluted. We have already hosted Tourism Cares and ninety associates of Delta Airlines and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and began the assault on the west side. The northeast corner was done in a previous public battle last year if you recall, and we also hosted the Lynn University Lacrosse team and started to tackle the west side with two other private assaults. But the north side is the gap in the front line.
A generous offer from Greg Burkhart, a land owner on No Name Key, has given us unprecedented access to the north. There is ample parking with a private boat ramp … all for our use. This upcoming event is backed up by a free and even more fabulous cookout with Kiki’s Sandbar and Grille and also with support from our great friends at Winn-Dixie. This is going to be our best assault ever.
The Florida Keys are bigger than the US 1 corridor that everyone usually drives through. No one sees this … and that is about to change.
Family friendly, face painting, a serious scavenger hunt, prizes, and of course all of your biggest hearts who care about the devastated marine habitats and the ocean critters who called it home. This is where we draw the line, and cross the 3,000 volunteer network point that shows everyone … we move mountains. Join us.
Event Date: November 9th.
Please see the Facebook Event Page for more details.
We have paired up with a remarkable artist, Amanda Jorgensen, to create a unique piece of pottery for you. A custom cup, emblazoned with CRMA. These are not mass produced. Each is made by hand and is unlike all others.
You can see this item in our store, where you will find all of the info about these unique pieces. Oh, and each purchase gets a free tee-shirt tossed in!
And as always, thank you for your support as we continue our volunteer missions to cleanup and restore our marine habitats.
