Become a Blogger Mondays: It’s Time to Piggyback!

Sooooo, remember that whole segment I did about getting yourself out there when you’re a new blogger?  About how it’s important to grow your brand and network?  REMEMBER? No?  Ok, well, this is where I told you that it’s important to SPREAD YOUR WINGS!  I’m going to piggyback off of that post and share an example of what I do to get out there on occasion.  I like to cover events that are happening in the DC area and recently I’ve been volunteering for Lazy Panda!  Don’t remember who they are?  Well, go back to my post about being at Trillectro because I was hanging with them there also!

I attended the most recent H Street festival and not only volunteered with helping Lazy Panda out, but I got to snap some pretty cool pics also!  Check out my skills:

A Prom Dream Come True!

No matter what path anyone takes in life, it’s so important to give back.  Give back to family, to friends, to strangers…to your community!  That feeling of making someone happy can’t be replaced with anything else and sometimes it only takes a small gesture to make someone’s world a little better.  With that said, it’s no surprise that I was more than happy to volunteer for the Uplifting Sisters “Prom Dreams” event!

I’ve always worked with youth of all ages while living in Philadelphia, so this was right up my alley and something I knew would make a big difference in the lives of young ladies!  I’m open to helping any and everyone, but there’s something about helping young girls that has always been close to my heart and for that I commend Sheena Brown, founder of Uplifting Sisters, because there aren’t enough professional women GIVING BACK to our country’s future.  Attendees were able to shop for dresses, jewelry, shoes, shawls and handbags at NO CHARGE!  Everything was free to them and their families and it was all with a goal of doing something great!

No matter how tired any of us were, seeing the look on their faces was something that even I can’t describe!  If you aren’t seeking to help others, you need to start because it will truly be inspiring for not only them, but for you as well.  Teamwork makes the dream work!
