Today I had my first meeting with my mentor for my Girl Scout Gold Award. Mr. Geoff Edwards works at the University of Evansville and is the Director for the Center of Student Engagement. I am very excited to be able to work with him on this project.
Here's just a short version of what my project entails. It is titled "4 Months of Philanthropy." Every month I will pick a topic and help organizations within that topic. November is hunger, December is children, January is military, and February is acts of kindness. After volunteering at these places I will interview someone from each organization in order to create a video. The purpose of the video is to show people all the options they have of places to volunteer and increase the amount of time people spend helping others!
My step dad and I also volunteered at the LST Veteran's day breakfast this morning. Such a great opportunity to serve those who have served us! We heard lots of great stories and helped lots of great people.
This new journey is going to be challenging, but I know with all the support I have it will be a successful one!
