Everyone is busy but we all can make a little time to help. This is one of the easiest ways.
We live in such a busy world. Today, I had a coffee meeting scheduled with a community leader about four hours before I was supposed to even start my workday. I needed to shoot a promo for Race For the Cure, I had to attend a special news meeting about internal changes, I was set up to tape an interview with a guest, and I’m co-anchoring Live at 4 today. On top of my normal duties, I’m really booked solid. All day.
I am not alone. A lot of folks out there are booking themselves into craziness, whether it’s intended or imposed. It just happens.
However, one thing I did on my way into work was very small but also very special. I dropped off some ingredients tonight to the Ronald McDonald House so families there will have a good, home cooked meal. As a member of the Junior League, we volunteer our time and donations to help the families staying in local hospitals for their sick children.
A group of us brings ingredients while another group volunteers to cook the meal. Since I am usually anchoring the news at dinner time, I choose to drop off ingredients.
I’m telling you this because unfortunately, there are always families staying at the RMH.
The great thing is you can help them with minimal effort. Everyone wants to help out someone else but often we find ourselves saying, “I wish I had the time.”
If you’re interested, call the Ronald McDonald House in your area (in Madison the number is 608-232-4660.) Ask what the needs are and see if you can get a group coordinated at your work, church or school!
