Issue #1 Preview: Photos from Volunteers

One of the stories we’ll feature in the first issue will be about volunteering and what that experience is like. We want to give readers a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s really like to serve. First-person accounts are always interesting, but we wanted to tell the story from a few different points of view. So here’s what we did….

We chose two Thanksgiving events to enlist volunteers to chronicle their days. Then we gave them disposable cameras and asked them to take pictures – not of the event itself – but of their experience volunteering. We worked with two extremely helpful organizations – Caritas and El Buen Samaritano – to organize these projects. Thanks to them for all their help!

Not sure which we’ll use yet – or what we’re looking at exactly – but we think we’ve got some great stuff for this story. These are just a few from Turkey Trot volunteers. Wait until Torquil gets his hands on these… you’ll see why we’re so excited about them.
