Today I had the opportunity to be on the set of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. I picked up trash around the neighborhood, broke down tables, emptied garbage cans, threw away cardboard boxes, and mingled with some of the crew members; it was great day.
First off, I had no idea they were even coming to our town. However, when I found out, I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of such a great cause.
The house that was being built for the family (as you can see ) was absolutely beautiful. The story behind the family that will reside in this work of art is even more intriguing.

So, what did you think? Well, if you were moved and feel compelled to become involved with your community, then you should definitely consider getting more involved. Here’s how:
- Always be on the lookout for opportunities. Check your community websites and local newspaper for upcoming events.
- When you find one, jump on it!
- When you are selected, make sure you do what’s asked of you. Don’t be there just to look good, but really be selfless and work hard at helping others.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t have to be Extreme Makeover to get you
excited to volunteer. Check out your local homeless shelters, nursing homes, churches, etc.—I’m pretty sure someone would enjoy having your skills. I’m telling you, being involved with such a great cause is such a rewarding experience.
When was the last time you volunteered your time?
