I knew the answer to this right when I read the question.
I have this 'dream', it's not really a dream because it will
happen but I'm not sure what else I should call it. I guess
maybe a goal or something. I know the right word, a plan.
Ok, so, I have this plan to volunteer around the world.
I've always been addicted to travel in every way shape and form.
I want to travel when I graduate from college, by travel I mean;
I'm going to buy a plane ticket to somewhere and not come back
home until I've seen it all. After thinking about this for a while
I said to myself 'Why just travel? Why not do something productive
while I'm out seeing the world?' So I began searching and scouring
for something I could do while traveling. Then it hit me; volunteer.
I've been volunteering my entire life, I'm basically a professional
volunteer! You mean I can do two things that I love at the same time?!
I'm sold! I got this book from my little sister for my birthday called
500 Places Where you can make a Difference by Frommer's.
I've already read the book cover to cover. I've highlighted the places
where I'm interested in going and are also really cheap.
There are some places where you can go and its $250 for 2 weeks!
It includes a place to sleep, food, training, and the the volunteer work!
There are lots of places in the U.S. that are free!
You work 4 hours a day and they give you a place to sleep and food!
What a deal!
So, I want people to hear my name and ask these questions:
'What country is Johnny in now? Where is she volunteering?'
I want to be known as the girl who 'volunteered around the world'.
I'm currently trying to figure out how to get sponsors or
donations from businesses to help fund my trip.
I won't be leaving for a year but it's going to take some planning
so I need to start now.
So, if any of you know of a business that would be interested in
donating a few bucks, let me know!
Now, onto the more important stuff, what would YOU want to be known for?
To all my Faithful Readers:
Here is a small peek inside my brain. Enjoy.
