In case you missed it, I’m knee-deep in my (now annual) Holiday Service Challenge. You can read more about it here, but the gist of it is that my sister and I commit to volunteering a certain number of hours to honor our Mom’s birthday.
We kicked off the challenge on December 1st and have been going hard since then. Over the past 13 days, I have made lunch at the Chicago Women’s AIDS Project, volunteered at church, created Christmas cards with my sister’s group of girls, and served dinner at a residence for women in transition. And, this weekend, I have THREE service projects lined up. I can’t wait!
You know why? Because all three of these are directly related to the holidays and spreading Christmas cheer. Something that I L-O-V-E. Want to know my plans?
- Caroling with Chicago Cares (*squeal*)
- Sorting Holiday Stockings for the Night Ministry
- Volunteering at Lincoln Park Zoo’s Zoo Lights Festival (Little ones, Christmas cheer, and the Primate House? JOY.)
I will be sure to snap a few pics along the way, so follow me on Instagram to check them out. Have you made any volunteer plans this holiday season? What’s on your agenda?
