Library Diva's Guide to Volunteering…











{December 4, 2010}   volunteering CAN change the world!

I remember when this video came out on MTV. My sisters and I would all sing different parts, and then all of us would sing the chorus together. Even today, 26 years later, you can’t help but get warm, fuzzy feelings and a desire to get out there and make a difference when you hear it. Especially this time of year.

When you live on the library side of the street, you have a soft spot for musicians, artists, writers, and readers. That’s what music is, a lyric, a poem, a story put down in to words and complimented with instruments: a piano, a guitar, drums and the human voice.

After 26 years, I can still listen to this song and still feel the call to action. This song is for Africa, but the message is timeless all around the world and  in our own back yard.  Use your time, resources or money to help those that have less than you.

Deliver a meal, crochet a blanket, donate food, give to the United Way, adopt a shelter pet…the list is endless, the need is endless and the reward is eternal.
