Environmental service

You seem to have a real passion for keeping things green! There are many possibilities here, depending on your individual interests or abilities:Advocacy work: Consider petitioning, fund-raising, phone-banking, protesting, or simply educating others through international organizations such as http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/, national organizations such as http://www.earthshare.org/, or state/local organizations.Recycling: This type of service starts in your home, your office, your classroom. Then, expand your impact to your neighborhood or apartment complex, your company or building, your school or university...your zip code, your city, your state. --If your town, city, or metro area has a recycling program, endorse it by educating residents about what can be safely and efficiently recycled in your community...sometimes the only incentive people need to recycle is information! Did you know that each ton of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy and 7,000 gallons of water?--If your town, city, or metro area does not have a recycling program, start one. It's possible with determination and hard work, and the positive impacts of your efforts will be seen immediately! Community beautification/renewal: What a wonderful way to green your area! Plant trees with a local organization (such as http://www.shreveportgreen.org/index.cfm), help care for a public garden, or assist in planting for a disadvantaged neighborhood (for example, through http://www.sbcr.us/index.cfm).A simple google search will lead you to more local or specialized results!OR see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_environmental_organizations

Homelessness

You have a strong desire to help the homeless. Build: Why not help build houses for the homeless through organizations such as http://www.habitat.org/ or http://www.fullercenter.org/? Both nonprofits allow you to work side-by-side with the family that you're helping and provide many ways to help directly, even for those of us who can't swing a hammer!Shelters: Help with local homeless shelters! Serve meals, assist with childcare, etc. In most communities, there are homeless shelters that are both faith-based (such as Shreveport-Bossier's Rescue Mission: http://sbrescuemission.com/) and non-denominationally run (such as the Shreveport-based family shelter Providence House http://www.theprovidencehouse.com/). Check this website to find all homeless shelters in the USA-- you may be surprised at the number in your community!: http://www.homelessshelterdirectory.org/Advocacy: Educate your friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors about the number and the plight of homeless people in your community. Raise awareness and get out the volunteer spirit!
