It was great to be a volunteer for Children International and help them pass the organizations message along and get people to sponsor and fund a child so that they can live a better life.
It was really great volunteering for this organization. Travis Greene had such an inspiring message. It was also really cool to see how willing people were to donate and sponsor and a child. They came to the Fillmore expecting to watch Travis Greene perform at a concert that they paid to go see. Many left with so much more, after feeling it in their heart to give back!
Loop is a a company built to inspire and empower, by creating a platform for people to serve and use their God-given gifts and abilities. Our vision is to build a community of people who love the Lord and selflessly serve others out of the overflow of their relationship with Christ. They work with artists & non- profits to provide the best volunteers for their tours and events.
At this event worked to help audience members sign up to become child sponsors. I handed out child packets throughout club/theatre during the show and at the table in the lobby.
I really liked this opportunity because it gave me the chance to take something I'm really passionate about and educate others about it. Children International is an amazing program focused on making a long-term impact by helping kids living in poverty. They have a bold vision: graduating healthy, educated, empowered and employed young adults from our program so they can achieve the goal of breaking the cycle of poverty. This program is close to my heart, and I would love to be a part of getting more sponsors for the program.
Today, I received the training to being an LSF tutor and also tutored a 2nd grader named Matthew. I really enjoyed working with my tutee and meeting some of the other volunteers. It was exciting to become more engaged in the DC community and to see some of the faces that make up the latino student population. I saw that the kids there were happy and ready to learn. The system was organized and productive.
Assisted with seeding and planting.
The CUA Polar Plunge was great. I was able to interact with several special olympics athletes and talk with other collegiate athletes about their experience with special olympics.
I worked very hard to raise over $700 for the Catholic University Polar Plunge 2019 Event. I have previously worked with Special Olympic DC with our first annual Unified Kickball game, so it was really fun and fortunate to be able to be part of another SODC event. Polar Plunge involved working with SODC athletes and actually plunging into a pool of ICE cold water to show our support. It was a great experience and I look forward to possible putting together a similar event here at GW.
Moved Plants down to the greenhouse and helped clean up the classroom.
I thought it was very interesting to see how the Grassroots leaders we able to administer lessons about HIV/AIDs and STIs in a fun manner that also educates people at the same time.
Learning the statistics about the HIV/AIDS epidemic was eye opening. I was able to learn more details and able to approach hard topics like these in ways to directly teach kids in the community. This new non profit is recently established and only has more growth and positive impacts to come.
