I can’t express to you enough how much of a positive effect on my life there has been by volunteering with Little Angels Service Dogs (and soon the Wildlife Learning Center). I have all this talent & time, as well as a full print shop at my fingertips, so getting to use that to help out these very small nonprofits has been very personally rewarding.
Yes, I’ll be getting a dog from LASD in the future, but their program is set up so that those on the list don’t have to fundraise at all… I just see the dog as such a gift, and would never expect to get anything for free. I like to think that my donations of signage, brochures banners, mailers, stickers, etc etc will just help further their brand, as well as their message… Which in the end, will help so many more people get their dogs.
Do something for your community. Give back. Lend your time, lend your heart… It’s worth it
