About

Do you love reality shows? So do we, and this is your chance to take part in someone's real life in a way that makes a difference. It's not tv program, but it is a real-life opportunity to do some good in the world. If you have a few hours a week or month, the desire to make a commitment and the the leadership skills to follow through, this is all the reality you will need. The tasks are easy, sort junk mail, copy favorite recipes or a phone directory into large print, pick up a few cans of soup before the next big storm or stop at the pharmacy on your way home from work and drop it off for an octagenarian so she doesn't have to take the bus. IT IS EASY, AND IT IS REAL REAL REAL - not TV!
