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) ┬áthat 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

One Day. One Thousand Volunteers. Limitless Change.
