Friends,

Twenty years ago, a group of friends and I started HandsOn Atlanta in a bar by passing a beer mug for donations. I can still vividly recall the energy and excitement of dreaming up something new, of being a part of creating a way for people to participate. So it's a real thrill to be able to play a part now in supporting the development of the next generation of social entrepreneurs.

Today's blog is written by Amanda who is a blogger as well as a former newborn care nurse.

When it comes to volunteering most people immediately jump on the ‘feel good’ mission and choose an organization or task that makes them smile. For me, volunteering my time at the local animal shelter or the children’s hospital would be my ‘feel good’. I love anything that barks, purrs or had four legs and as far as children go, they have a spirit that puts a smile on my face. Do a little dance, read a book, throw a ball- children and animals are easy to please.
