My volunteer efforts focus on an organization called “Rhymes that Bind”. It’s associated with the Centre for Family Literacy. I am a poet and an art historian, so being able to help communicate words through images is very rewarding. Language opens so many doors, so to be able to help parents and children – even the youngest of kids – explore the written word is thrilling. I believe volunteering creates such positive qualities. If I can contribute to my community with my specific skills, so can everyone. So go and volunteer, it’s not just about doing good, it is about engaging with the world around you!
