Speaking of Service – How do you help?

Service 400

 

Welcome to the Blog Party!  This week we are talking Service.  This means we are looking for everything and anything on the topic!

SERVICE – an act of helpful activity; to be helpful or useful

What it means, how to be of service, places to give service, how not to burn out while being of service… really ANYTHING and EVERYTHING on the topic.

I’m going to start things off by directing you to three posts I think speak beautifully on the topic:

Bloggers Who Inspire the World to Help Others from the amazing Pennies of Time blog.  An incredible collection of uplifting and useful ideas. “Bloggers Who Inspire the World to Help Others . . . inspire us and teach us how to be more direct in teaching our children to serve, in teaching our children to be kind.”

51 Holiday Service Projects – something for everyone! “a big, fat list of holiday service project ideas that you and your families can do for the holidays!”

WaysToHelp.org – A fabulous site that exists “to engage, inspire and enable high school students to make a positive difference in the world. We do this by making it easy for them to learn about, and take action against, 16 of today’s most pressing social issues.” Help a teen make a difference!

Check them out and add your own finds in a comment or in the linky below. Remember NEW and OLD posts by you and others are welcome.

Here are the ground rules for this party:

  1. Share NEW and OLD posts on the topic. This is your chance to share your favorite posts. If they fit the topic and you think we could benefit it doesn’t matter when you wrote it. Wisdom is timeless!
  2. Share your’s and other’s posts! Ran across a timely tidbit? Let us hear about it too! When sharing someone else’s posts let us know that in a comment.
  3. Leave a comment after posting letting us know why you think the post is worth our time. We are building a knowledge library and your context makes it all the more valuable!
  4. Have Fun! I hope to make this party a fun and valuable addition to your weekend blog hopping.

Note:  If you don’t have a blog to share, photos, ETSY collections and essays are most welcome. Let me know if you need help linking them up!

I look forward to visiting all the treasures YOU add to the collection!
Outrageous Joy,
Kathy
