giving back (survey)

I've been thinking a lot about charity work, giving back to the community and improving the world around us. I really want to get your thoughts about community and world needs and see what you view as important. Please take a moment to ponder the following questions. Then copy/paste them along with your answers in the comment section for this post. Thanks and lets make the world a little bit brighter today!

What do you feel are the most important global societal/environmental issues in the world today?

What charities/organizations do you know of that are addressing the above issue(s)?

What are the needs in your local community? (please include some description of the town or type-of area you are referencing, i.e. urban, suburban, specific town name, state, etc.)

What charities/organizations are addressing these local issues?

What would you like to see improve in your local community?

What type of volunteer/donating/causes are you involved in?

If money/time wasn't a factor, what cause would you get involved?

What are the everyday things you do to try and make the world a better place?

Thanks for taking the time to answer these questions for me. Love you all!


well hello there

It's been a while. What have you been up to this past month?
As for me, life keeps happening whether or not I am blogging about it. Just a few things I've been up to: working on building my private therapy practice, tried to bring another dog into the family which didn't work out, organized my book shelves, planning for the next adventure (more on that later), and transitioned from pesca-lacto-ovo vegetarian to lacto-ovo vegetarian. I've been enjoying lots of organic and homegrown goodies this summer, as well as having a fenced in yard to let the dog romp leash-free. Taking my vitamins every day has been on an upswing, but exercising every day has not (tsk tsk). My toe is broken...again...the exact same way I broke it a couple of months ago (who the heck put that couch leg there?). I've been feeling detached yet completely connected. Tomorrow my beautiful nephew gets baptized. (I will bring my fire extinguisher in case I burst into flames when I enter the church.) I find myself bubbling over with love in my heart and want to share it with the world.
Okay, your turn. Go!
