New Mama Tip #24

One of my new year's resolutions is to volunteer more in my community...especially with my family. So, I thought I would compile a list of both local & national resources that can help in determining which organizations you want to support...

Volunteer San Diego is the best resource for everything you need to know about volunteering in San Diego. Find projects you can help with, research organizations, check out their youth volunteer guide or list an event or project of your own!

There are still a lot of ways you can help with the fire relief efforts from last year's tragic fires. Check out our joint-fundraiser with SanDiegoBargainMama.com and SanDiegoTravelTips.com.

Also, check out the So-Cal Fire Poster Project...."Donated by designers and artists around the globe, posters sold at the So-Cal Fire Poster Project raise funds for victims of the wildfires that devastated Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Diego Counties. All proceeds will be given to the Salvation Army, for the 2007 California Wildfire fund."

Or, if you want an easy way to give back and get your shopping done at the same time check out IGive.com. You shop from over 680 stores online, then a proceed of your purchase goes to the charity of your choice.

If you are unsure about which charity you should give your money to, check out Charity Navigator...they evaluate charities nationwide to make sure they are legitimate.

There are plenty of ways to get involved and give back...at whatever level you choose...the key is to choose one!
