Would you recommend Hattie Larlham?
Why do you post that you want volunteers on this website, and then not even provide the courtesy of contacting back and saying yes/no/maybe/event cancelled/whatever. Not a good way to get and encourage new volunteers!
Send birthday cards to disabled people was really fun. I recommend anyone to try it out. :D
The Birthday Card Buddy Program is perfect for those who really want to volunteer, but whose skills are stronger in written communication. The Volunteer Coordinator, Jenna Allen, is wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend e-mailing her if you're interested in volunteering but don't have a lot of extra time. I teach full-time and am also able to participate fully in this virtual volunteering program. I am able to dedicate as much (or as little) time as I have, still making a difference in others' lives. Growing up, I always had "pen pals" and writing to them was always enjoyable for me. As an adult, while I am not able to maintain constant "pen pal" contact with people because of limited time, I am still able to continue on the tradition of writing a note when I have a few free minutes, purchasing fun cards, and knowing that I am helping to make someone else's life just a little bit brighter. Definitely a 5-star opportunity. :-)
This is a great program! It's very easy but very rewarding. I highly recommend it!
This is a GREAT agency to work with. The return contact was quick; the directions were easily understood; and the project itself was easy. This is an especially good project for mature citizens and those who are housebound. You certainly might consider sending Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other cards to your BB. I look forward to continuing my association with Birthday Buddy Cards.
