Mitzvah Day

In Awesomeness, Judaism, Life Goals, Mitzvahs, New Orleans on June 3, 2010 at 5:22 am

On Sunday, I’m going to be making survival kits for the homeless through the Jewish Federation of New Orleans. It’s not doing a heck of a lot, but as someone who has lived out of her car, I think giving back and helping people in need, even if it’s just getting them a few basic comforts, is something more people should be doing.

If you want to make a difference in the lives of others, there a billion charities and nonprofits out there to choose from. There are animal shelters, organizations that help people tell their own stories, soup kitchens, clothing banks, and so many more ways to help that it’s pretty much impossible to say there is no entity out there that meshes with your values and interests.

Also, welcome back to the blog. I’m going to be updating this site to reflect my new life. Some of the journalism stuff will go. Some will stay. I’ll be adding information about art, Jewishness, New Orleans, grad school, writing, and etc. I hope you enjoy your visits here and the new look.
