I love the Patagonia brand for the commitment to Environmental action and making a difference for our planet in so many ways. If you are interested in learning new ways to get involved in environmental action take a look at Patagonia.com and Patagonia.com/actionworks – there is so much to learn on this site.
One thing that I found really interesting on the Actionworks site is a virtual event about using your own personal skills, passions, and interests in volunteering. I have done many service hours over the years helping out at various events and these are all great opportunties to meet new people and have fun serving others – but I do think it’s especially great to be able to serve in ways that share skills and knowledge within you. It’s interesting to look back and realize that many of my service hours have been in coaching and choreography for young gymnasts, so that is a skill based volunteer effort. It levels up the effort of volunteering and can help serve others in a personal way.
