Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
-----Theordore Roosevelt

I think that this quote describes working with a non-profit.  We don't do it for glamour.  We don't do it for money.  We don't even do it for ourselves.  We do it for others.  Period.

We find that when we do work for others, it makes us feel better because we are giving of ourselves and nothing else.

Sometimes we fall back into our minds, searching for something, allowing ourselves to think about what is truly important.

BUT, the people who choose to come to New Orleans, giving up time away from family, job, or what have you, these people are the true heros.  These Volunteering Heros!!!! The volunteers that we have been able to work with actually give us the strength to continue...

So, Thank You to all those who give of themselves for others.
