Do Good. Feel Good. Eat Good (Well).

KB's Journey, Volunteer Opps

Last year, I decided that I wanted to start doing meetups that combined service with delicious food. I planned the first “A Little Service, A Little Brunch” to happen last summer, but rescheduled because Red Pump was participating in Chicago’s Bud Billiken Parade. Can you believe that it has taken me almost an entire year to plan the rain check? *sigh*

Anyways, here are the details!

On Saturday, May 1st, I’m asking my Chicago friends to join me for a service project with The Glass Slipper Project. I participated with this great organization last year, and am looking forward to helping out again this year! There are plenty of duties available at different times of the day. The plan is to volunteer during the morning shift (8a – noon) at Abbott School (3630 S. Wells) and then head on over to Nana (3267 S. Halsted) for brunch!

If you’re interested, then you’ll need to do the following things:

  1. Sign up for a volunteer shift by clicking here.
  2. Leave a comment, email me (, or tweet me (@thefabgiver) to let me know that you’re coming. I’ll need to make a reservation by Wednesday, March 28th.
  3. Get excited!!!

I’m really looking forward to doing this. Not only am I geeked about the project, but I am really looking forward to eating at Nana. The restaurant uses organic ingredients only and has quite the appetizing menu! The plan is to make “A Little Service, A Little Brunch” an ongoing thing, so if you can’t make the first one…no worries! There will definitely be more 🙂

Any questions? Let me know!
