Just a thought...

This past week I had an orientation meeting with a popular volunteer organization.  I am really exctited to be working with this group and giving back to the community while also meeting new people, but I couldn't help but notice a few things that I thought were worth sharing.  Not criticisms, just food for thought...

-  Over 150 people were there giving up thier valuable time to "give back" to the community, but if each woman would have just turned in her handbag or the money it cost, we could have easily raised between $50,000 - $100,000 (based on the Chelsea Purifoy Purse Math Equation).  Again, not criticizing, because I was one of the attendees with a designer handbag attached to her arm.

-  Simiarly, if each attendee would have used the time it took to pick out thier stunning outfits, we could have already put in hours worth of volunteer work.

Volunteerism or joining a "scene"...not sure which one I am involved in yet.  Maybe both.
