"We may not solve world hunger here at JustServe, but we're convinced that by serving with each other in our local communities, we're paving the way for much broader changes. Our individual efforts don't need to be huge – a little bit of change here, a few hours there – but even small efforts quickly add up to make a real difference.
I notice a difference in my family when we serve. Though sometimes it is hard to get started, once we get into it, my kids have fun and they aren't whining or asking to be on electronics. We get along better and we feel really productive at the end. It's really quite a selfish thing!
JustServe.org is designed to help match up those who need volunteers with those who want a chance to serve. It's really fabulous and super easy. You type in your zip code and a list of places that need volunteers in your immediate area immediately comes up. It gives you the contact information you need to make arrangements and off you go! Even in my rural "3 hours from anywhere" location, JustServe.org had opportunities for me and my family.
It is easy to teach and talk about raising the good. But when the rubber hits the road, what it really comes down to, is action. Helping others matters. This non-profit website is a beautiful solution when we look around and wonder where to start.

Hi, I'm Jen! I adore chocolate, I'd rather read than clean my house, and I haven't seen my abs in I-don't-know-how-long. But I love my husband and kids to death and try to Raise The Good within myself and my family by making wise and uplifting media choices and having a deliberate family culture. You are probably doing the same thing. Let's share what works with each other!
