Hello, my name is Christine Taylor and I have lived in Ottawa all my life.
In 2002, the company that I owned and worked for had to close and finding work during this period of time was difficult. I stumbled across a volunteer opportunity and what was supposed to be a 4hr commitment per week quickly turned into 60!
Although I didn’t know it at the time, it has forever changed my life. Since then, I have met so many amazing people and organizations.
Almost 8 years later my husband Mark and I are still very active in the community and are now joined by our two children, Sasha and Emily.
My goal for this year is to volunteer for as many different charities and causes as I can up to 15-20 hours per month.
Please help spread the word by referring my blog, Facebook page and Twitter handle. Suggest a contact from your favourite charity or leave a post on my wall about it!
Over the year, I will be posting and blogging about my experiences in the hope that you might also volunteer somewhere and post your experiences!
