It seems like we’re all expecting so much from the world these days. We’re more obsessed with what we can get rather than what we can give.
I’ve been thinking for quite some time of what I can do to “help” and not in a lazy way but in a hands on lets make some changes kind of a way.
I’ve worked amongst many charities and I love helping in an ambassadorial role but I feel like I want to go one step further. I want to work with people. I want to listen to them, I want to sit with them. The issue here is this is not that simple.
I’ve tried to connect with a few charities and its so hard to get in the door without a degree in social work or psychology.
I would love to offer my time to work with the mentally ill or women that are victims of domestic abuse. I feel like both of those charities lack funding and support. Even though my mother lost her battle to cancer I feel like cancer has a lot of funding and support and my time could be utilised in a more useful way.
I would love to hear if you have any experience or ideas that could help me and others that are interested in reaching out to give our time.
Thank you all x
