To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.
– Thomas Moore

Do you remember a time when you thought you were helping another person or organization and then you were surprised at getting back more than you gave?

This is what happens when we take time to meet the people in our communities. Through volunteer work we learn the secret of giving and what can happen when we suspend judgment, show people kindness, and genuinely believe in the power of transformation. We get back more than we gave, every time.

Many of the leaders Linda works with carry a passion for doing great work and sharing their time, skills, and experience to help others. The idea of giving back to our communities is especially important to ensure children have equal access to education, adults have the opportunity for meaningful work, and we work together to safeguard the environment for future generations.
