Loving your Neighbor Series # 3

Today’s super neat find is actually a website for an organization that helps people with a heart to volunteer, but no clue what to do beyond that.  At Volunteer Match,  you can pick from lists or do a more specific search to find opportunities to volunteer in areas that you care about.  I feel it is a really great tool for everyone.  There are even virtual opportunities for people who aren’t comfortable with working in the field.  You can find out more about them here.

Here’s a view of what their page looks like.

Hope you’ll check them out!

Loving your Neighbor Series # 2

     Okay, hear me out on this one.  This week I want to talk about a product and its company, rather than about a specific charity or mission.  Although this company is not a non-profit company, they are doing great things to give back to the community.  I happen-chanced upon this company by searching for their products, after having seen a couple of people using them at the gym.  I’m talking about Polar Bottle.  

  
     Their mission statement includes the desire to improve the health of their customers, improve the health of our planet, and improve /strengthen American economy. Here’s a list of some of the programs they donate to, taken directly from their Giving Back page.  Most are local to their state of Colorado, but they are doing good things!

  • I Have a Dream Foundation
  • Cancer League of Colorado
  • The Epilepsy Foundation of Colorado
  • Realities for Children
  • Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics
  • The Access Fund

     If you are an athlete, like to exercise, are a frequently active person, or just a person who likes to stay hydrated, I hope you will check them out.  They offer many attractive bottles for men, women, and children in a variety of sizes.  Their bottles are also dishwasher safe, making them easy to clean and care for, which is important to many of us.   If you’re concerned about the safety of the product, you can get answers on their FAQ page.
