Time To Get To Work

"We are the ones we've been waiting for." Alice Walker

This quote seemed particularly appropriate after an exciting month where no less than the President called us all to serve. I was especially encouraged that he asked Americans to consider making a long-term commitment to an organization or cause. He understands that some projects can be completed in a day - and that healing lives as a mentor or coach or leader needs relationships and service that endure.

So now what?

For those who haven't served yet - start today. VSD's Flex Projects are the perfect place to begin.

For those already serving on a short-term basis, consider the impact you could make with a longer-term commitment.

For those hardy souls already in for the long haul, talk to your favorite organization about their most critical needs and explore how you can be a partner in meeting them.

Our waiting is over. I can't wait to see what we do as a community.
