Join In

This past weekend I attended a charitable event hosted by Reason to Party in San Francisco. They throw a big party every few months of epic proportions and give all of the proceeds to a specific charity. It makes it easy to support a worthy cause, all in the name of a good time.

Over the past decade I've supported Easter Seals, Meals on Wheels, a couple of local neighborhood groups (not to mention my two-year stint in the Peace Corps) all with my time and effort. Joining such groups not only make you feel like your having some good impact on this earth, it's also a great way to meet good friends and build lasting relationships doing something your passionate about.

Find something that lights a fire under you; whether it's a cause, a club of similar interests, or a community organization. Be a part of something and join a group this week. If you need some inspiration, check out meetup.com for a list of groups in your area. They have groups for just about everything. Again, it doesn't need to be for charity (that's just my thing), as long as it's something that interests you.

Leave a comment and let me know what you group you joined this week.
