BonaResponds International Service Day THIS SATURADY!

Open to all! Get involved.

BonaResponds International Service Day THIS SATURDAY!:
"BonaResponds International Service Day

The basic idea of the day is to go and make the world a better place. And then, spread the good that you did with others around the globe!

We all have talents to share. Too often we don't try to do something to help because we fear our little impact would be too small to matter. This is a day to show that we all matter and that if everyone does a little, much will get done."
and later:

here are some of the job sites. (We don't really know the entire list!)

* Atlanta GA- a crew from Haygood Methodist Church will be working on a Habitat Build for a family from Iraq
* Birmingham AL-will be working at a home for women just released from prison
* Buffalo NY-will have over 100 people working at 10 different sites in conjunction with VillaVolunteers and the SBU Alumni
* Cambodia: Sean (one of the original leaders of BonaResponds) will be working at an orphanage
* Chicago IL- a large group of volunteers led by BonaResponds-Chicago will be working at Grant Park
* Leogane Haiti- Andy (another of the original BonaResponds leaders) will be working on earthquake recovery
