Have you made a difference in your community? Here's a great idea, change a life - with just one hour per week you can help a blind person continue toward their goal of independent living. Read their mail, drive them to the grocery store or bank, help them label household items. It's easy and you can set your own schedule! This is a great way to spring into action and dust off to achieve that olde New Year's Resolution to make your world a better place!
