[masked] UPDATE Here is a full scan of the volunteer packet that they gave me.

FYI This charity helps ALL at-risk pregnant mothers, with care and decision making. They are a Christian organization and they do take a pro-life stance, but their primary concern is care and education, and so we help them....regardless of our own personal stance on abortion. Zero will attend the planning meeting on Jan 26 to get more details about our role(s) at the event, but they love us and so it will be good!
Walk For Wishes® is a nationwide Make-A-Wish® fundraiser that celebrates the more than 300,000 wishes that have already been granted, while raising funds for future wishes. It's a family-friendly event powered by wish families, volunteers, companies, donors and friends. We have just made contact with this group and they are really looking forward to us volunteering for this event. They are also looking for permanent volunteers. I can forward that information individually if you’d like. I will have more specific details in the days to come. Really hope you can make this walk, so many people depend on volunteers like us.
When you walk in the Out of the Darkness Walks, you join the effort with hundreds of thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss. This walk is in the very early stages of planning. As information arrives, I will forward to you immediately. We have volunteered for this group before, and we impressed them so much they would like us to help for all of their events. Thanks to Walkers and Donors like you, AFSP has been able to set a goal to reduce the annual suicide rate 20% by 2025.
We love JusRun! We helped them with the VegasStrong run downtown late last year and they were on the ball and fun to volunteer with! So when they reached out to us recently, we said YES!
