Over the years, I’ve volunteered for lots of organizations, and each experience has been so rewarding and has given me a better perspective on what’s going on in the world.
It’s definitely important for me to experience the issues we’re up against first hand. I’ve traveled to India and Sri Lanka as part of an Oxfam project, and during those 10 days, I visited an Oxfam-funded school in Uttar Pradesh, got involved in a few healthcare projects and one domestic violence project involving Indian women.
In 2008, I went to Rwanda with (RED) to help them increase awareness of AIDS sufferers in the African nations and to help out in the AIDS clinics. After Hurricane Katrina hit, I also spent time helping victims by dishing out food from USA Harvest to the homeless at the Made Love Cafe in St, Benard Parish in New Orleans.
Whenever I leave places like these, I am always amazed by what I see and learn. These organizations have such an enormous impact on the lives of the people and communities that they help.
I’m a huge supporter of Oxfam America and can attest to the essential and outstanding support that their projects provide. Now, I’ve started a holiday campaign on Crowdrise benefiting Oxfam America and their emergency relief efforts in Haiti.
Please click on the project below and check it out. After being hit by disaster after disaster, Haiti needs our help.
Thanks so much,
