I volunteered at my family's church this weekend, packing meals for Feed My Starving Children. Initially I wasn't going to post about it because I always feel weird talking about volunteer hours; like, somehow, people will think that I'm mentioning it just so I can say I did volunteer work. But my dad sent me the final totals this afternoon and these numbers are just too awesome not to mention:

In three days we had over 1700 volunteers who packed 404,568 meals, which will feed 1108 children for a year.


Last year our total was 200,000 meals. This year, our goal was to hit 400,000. We hit that, and some change.

It feels really good to have been able to be a part of that experience.

Well done. And never feel like you can't talk about your volunteer work. Your followers are your friends, they aren't going to assume ill intentions.
