Having fun while giving back.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.

Some days I wonder how to make a difference and others the invitation lands in my mailbox. Today’s post has landed in my mailbox.

So who wants to go and have some fun all while making a difference?

Happy Crafting!

Giving back by showing up.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. Some days I am talking about sharing your smile or grabbing lunch with a friend. Other times it’s about mailing cards for an 18 year old boy that needs a full mailbox since he has no party or friends. And still at times it is buying the donuts, the pizza, the wrapping paper, and so on.

So for today I am asking you to show up to the many events happening locally. Not only is there Card Class, but there are several other things as well on Saturday.

  • The United Methodist Church in Yucca Valley is holding a craft fair.
  • The United Methodist Church in 29 Palms is holding a parking lot sale.
  • The 29 Palms Elks Lodge is holding their craft fair and car show.
  • The Boys and Girls Club in Yucca Valley is holding a Krispy Kreme donut fundraiser. If you want a dozen please let me know.
  • Farmers Market is happening in Joshua Tree and 29 Palms. (The crepes in 29’s market are so good.)

I am sure there are others, but this is just to get you started. If you don’t show up then there is no reason for the coordinators to keep doing these events. I would encourage you to show up.

Happy Crafting!

Giving back after the holidays.

It’s Friendship Friday and today is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. I know during the holidays it is easy to give back. People almost expect it. But now it’s time for New Year’s Resolutions and to build the savings account back up. So I will ask you how do you give back when it is not obvious?

I know there is always a need for volunteers in several places. Here’s just a few locally…

  • 29 Palms Community Food Pantry
  • Reach Out Morongo Basin (helping seniors)
  • Concessions at Theatre 29
  • Boys & Girls Club in Yucca Valley

If you would like to get involved please contact me.

Happy Crafting!
