Show Up: How to Give to the Sacramento Community

Admittedly, I’m a bit of a solo-rider and prefer to work alone, but I’m also a sucker for great teamwork. We all have strengths and weaknesses, this is what makes teamwork so grand. It feels amazing to contribute to something you care about knowing that even if the contribution might seem small to you, will make a difference, is needed, and is appreciated.¬†ūüôĆ

I don’t have a lot of money or time to give, but I can definitely give of my knowledge and experience… especially to something that was once so cherished in our community. This is why I serve on the board of directors for¬†Festival de la Familia!¬†The past is in the past, I’m doing my part so Festival can have a future.¬†

Support what you care about… no matter how small you think your contribution may be. You might be amazed by just how much of an asset you can be.¬†* Insert shameless Chicas Latinas de Sacramento plug here. ūüĎą ¬†Whatever cause, event, or organization¬†is close to your heart… I urge you to simply show up for them.

Last night Festival¬†wrapped up its final¬†board meeting of the year and we are excited for 2016. It’s great to see the¬†progress that has been¬†made in¬†the last few months and our members are¬†looking forward to conducting another round of board interviews on January 7th. Good things are coming!

On that note… I’ve had way too many 12+hr. workdays this week. Here’s to the freak’n weekend! Happy Friday friends.
