|Sometimes I think I spend|
my entire life
on the road!
|Make a double batch and freeze one to share!|
Both of my children played sports or cheered so I racked up a tremendous amount of bleacher time, much of which was simply waiting for the next game/match. I often threatened to start a quilt, but never did. Why don't you outdo me and keep your knitting/crocheting/handwork in your bleacher bag. You could craft prayer shawls and baby blankets and preemie hats and chemo caps as you rack up the bleacher hours. Now that's something worth cheering about!
|How many people in your community|
could use a warm scarf?
The Resident Dragon coached for years and, in the interest of seeing him more than 20 minutes a week, I learned to keep score for every sport he coached or my children played. It made sense to make good use of the time I was racking up in the bleachers. Turns out, I was actually good at it, and there was always a shortage of good scorekeepers.
Social Media/Web Maven
Most organizations I know could really use a decent social media/web maven. If you enjoy fiddling around on Facebook or Instagram or Pinterest or Twitter or Google+ or blogs or the web, you could volunteer those skills to your church or a ball team or a local charity. It's work that can be done from home, and, often, does not take more than a few hours per week.
How do you volunteer in your community?
