Introduction

Hi I'm Valerie My website is www.ChoicesFundraisi­ng.com. Donate to the charity of your choice and then visit Choices Fundraising to receuve chances to win items. I am also a volunteer with Canine Companions for Independence. www.cci.org

Have you ever volunteered before? In what way? (Tutoring, Kids, Humanitarian, Cleanup, Nature, Animals) Still doing so?

I just started a company to help charities. My website is under development...coming soon ChoicesFundraising.com. When you donate to the charity of your choice, I reward you with chances to win items. Prizes will vary but the first few will be quilts that I make. I help train service dogs & have a home business doing the best-ever fundraisers!

What do a person's day-to-day actions REALLY say about them? What do the words MORAL FIBER mean to you? Tell us what you think...

Moral fiber is doing the right thing without even thinking about it. Day to day actions say everything! People who don't give just have not found that place in their lives. I know because I did not always volunteer. I'm more complete now that I do.

Are you new to Chicago? Might you need or can you help carpool? As a fun community of members, transport to non-city events never ends up a problem!

I am not new to Chicagoland. I'm in Lake County so carpooling might be a great idea.

Occasionally outside groups contact us looking for help. Is there a specific type (animals, kids, etc) of volunteering you would like us to keep you mind for in these situations?

My husband and I are experienced with dogs, me as a volunteer him as an AKC Obedience Judge. I have years of sewing and quilting experience.

Where did you hear about our group? A Current Member (who)? Meetup link/email? Flier? Speech? Facebook? Other? (Specific answers will help us & the number we reach out to *GROW* :)

Just saw you on Meet Up.

    FYI, since we just haven't gotten any interest for this on July 8th, I am RESCHEDULING this to July 29th. I hope we actually get some additional people. Also I hope this doesn't present an Inconvience for you!

    Hi Valerie,

    As a staff partner for ACS, I'm responsible for organizing fundraisers in Lake County like Relay For Life, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and Walk & Roll to raise money to support the programs we provide, like wigs for cancer patients, rides to treatment, etc. I'm also responsible for coming up with participant and volunteer recruitment and fundraising programs to make these events successful. I really enjoy working with volunteers so my job is very rewarding. :)
