Cradles to Crayons popular weekend adventure!

"Why fit in when you were born to STAND OUT?" - Dr. Seuss

Who doesn't want to sleep in on a Saturday morning after a long week? Who wouldn't want to stay in bed and simply eat a well deserved chocolate chip cookie dough? What about the kids who depend on Cradles to Crayons because they don't have a winter coat - imagine how cold you'd feel, feeling the Boston Winter without a coat. Well staying in bed isn't what a Boston Volunteer does. I stood up.

When I got to Cradles some of my friends, from the Boston Volunteers, Corey, Nagina, Phani and TeLisa warmly greeted me. Helping make kids packs, knowing that we were helping real local kids, rejuvinated all of us. Never knowing what shirt you were going to discover while rummaging through the "kids treasure mountain" inspired excitement. We discovered, laughed, and almost cried. One of my favorite kids was:

"I tried to be good, but I got bored"

We went out afterwards for coffee. We go back every couple of weeks. Many of us are friends now.

Life is an adventure...will you join us?
