Do you volunteer anywhere? (Or have you ever in the past?) If so, where? What did you do for them?

I used to volunteer for the New england Springer rescue. I fostered dogs, did transports, and evaluations. I fostered 5 dogs all together, 1 of which I kept, 1 had to be put to sleep, 2 were adopted out, and 1 is living in another permanent foster home because of his age and medical issues.

I'm a volunteer fire fighter if that counts.

In the past, I have volunteered at 4 elementary schools with different responsibilities at each. I have painted a GED classroom, and winterized a women's and children's shelter. I volunteered at a camp as a counselor for kids with incarcerated parents.

I hold an annual bone marrow drive (which reminds me, I need to start on next year's.)

I volunteer for the Histiocytosis Association of America. This includes awareness, education, and research. (By research I mean creating lists of pediatric hospitals and transplant facilities as well as getting the names of drs with histio patients. These lists include as much info and stats as I can find. I also find contact info for doctors that are doing histio research so that the HAA can touch base with them and even help fund them.)
