hands on…

October 16, 2012

I have a thing for hands…what they hold, what they do, how wrinkled and rough they are, the stories they tell.

It is with our hands that we make lunches, rub or scratch a back, move furniture, write a letter, create something beautiful, build something new…hold the people we love close. Hands hold and make the change.

So when Hands On Greater Richmond asked if I would be part of their Hands On Day here in RVA, I quickly said yes.  HandsOn Greater Richmond provides a link for folks to join together and engage in meaningful volunteer opportunities within RVA.

Once a year 1,000 people get together for one giant day of volunteering…it’s amazing and lovely. As part of the celebration after the event, I will be part of a kindness experience (along with Hands On and Art on Wheels)  that will hopefully inspire you to take your giving back to the streets and neighborhoods of Richmond.

SOoooo come volunteer for a morning, then party at Hardywood, then go home with a kindness mission! Can’t wait to see you there!


When: This Saturday, October 20th from 9am-1pm THEN celebrate from 1-3:30pm

Where: All over RVA first, register here, THEN celebrate at Hardywood Park Craft Brewery with food trucks and more

Why: because your hands can do something good

You can find out more and invite friends on the Facebook event page here.

One Day. One Thousand Volunteers. Limitless Change.

  1. This is really cool! I would love to hear more details! Can’t wait to see how it turns out!

  2. Thanks Patience! Can’t wait to have you at our Celebration at Hardywood. Volunteers–there are still a few projects in danger of cancellation without more sign ups. Especially “Trail Maintenance for Fitness” at Chickahominy YMCA. http://www.handsonrva.org/HOC__Volunteer_Opportunity_Details_Page?id=a0CA000000JYUFnMAP .
