love: charity app

 
{In Columbia, one of my favorite days was hanging out with these orphans}
 
We have all felt happieness at one time or another in our lives from helping others, but sometimes it's easy to get caught up in our own world's and put that on the back burner. We all help our friends and family members but what about our communities and people around us who REALLY need our help? I have been wanting to give back in a bigger way and so I was so stoked when April showed me this new app call Catalista that allows you to find voulenteer opportunities according to your preferences and location! Genius...and it is easy to sign up for an activitiy and it tracks and let's you rate your experience! I have signed up for two events so we will let you guys know how it goes.
 
Here is a great article about Creating Meaning By Helping Others.

    What a great post! I am definitely going to download this app and look for activities to help out my community. I know I sometimes feel like I do enough of that at work being a special education teacher, but helping others has always made me feel good. Buddha was onto something with that quote! Thank you for sharing and inspiring me to get more involved!

    Strive to thrive,
    Em

    P.S. CONGRATS!
