Looking for a way to contribute? Share your talent and your time

I always feel better when I make a significant contribution. Giving my time and my talent is a rewarding activity, especially when I make a positive impact.

As a professional writer, I find that my time and my professional talents are the best gifts that I have to share with my friends who are “in transition.” Helping bring out the best in others is a positive activity!

When your friends and members of your communities are holding fund raising events, consider donating your time and your talent:

  • Resume makeover, value $450
  • 3 hours of professional writing and editing, value $300
  • 3 hours of social media training, value $350

You can ask for and receive a donation receipt. Instead of giving money, consider contributing your time and your talent.

In the past four years, I have performed over two dozen resume makeovers for personal friends and their friends. I am inspired by the positive feedback and good will that I so easily generate. I have donated over a dozen resume maker donations to charitable organizations, including:

Bonus! Some friends feel the need to reciprocate, so they make donations to charities of my choice. I have been able to parlay their donations into membership dues in organizations for other friends in need. Paying it forward is a good feeling.
