Big Brothers, tutoring, music lessons, coach baseball, Peace Corps, soup kitchens, NPO fund-raising, advocate for Chicago's Nature Areas. I'm so glad CFV has gone public... remember anyone can post here! In fact, we don't work w/out your help too!
Deep down, everyone has an understanding of right & wrong. Ask a person point-blank to define morals and from their eye contact, body stance and comfort level alone you'll know the type of life they've lived. Pretty neat, eh?
While I grew up here, I left for college @17 and only recently returned (for a surgery). It's fun to re-explore now that I have a valid-ID! I sold my car after moving downtown. Once rented a 9-seat iGo for carpooling.
My passions are nature and teaching. And tho I came up for the idea behind this site, life does *not* revolve around its upkeep. Recently began playing guitar at a home for the disabled, think they call that music therapy. My idea of side fun!
The idea for CHICAGO FUN VOLUNTEERS came to me as the Park Districts closed for the '09 season. Meetup seemed perfect to connect volunteers w/events. This is a "DO IT YOURSELF" group as I have a full-time travel job! CFV is open to all, post away :P
Chicago is filled w/people willing to help and worthy causes abound. Why sit at home when you could be out exploring the city and having a great time to boot?
If you like feeling good about yourself... being smiled at, and thanked... for regular decent things you'd probably do anyway - this is the group for you!
