I also found a volunteer position that I am excited about. I have looked for awhile to find what seemed right at this particular time in life and I know that I I found it. While searching the web for just the right thing I came across the Foundation for Hospital Art. They paint murals and paintings and tiles for hospitals all over the world to brighten the atmosphere for everyone who comes through the door.
They also hold events where patients and their families as well as volunteers are involved in the painting. When I walked into the workroom everyone was so friendly and I immediately felt at home. I knew right away that this would be a wonderful way to give back. The paintings are bright and cheerful just as are the people who help to create them.
What began as one man's simple act of kindness has spread goodwill and cheer throughout the world. Hospitals have murals and paintings created by patients and volunteers adorning the walls.And friends are made while creativity is expressed. Who could ask for more?
Is there something special in your community that you like to take part in? I was pleasantly surprised to learn about this organization. I am sure there are many more that I have never heard of and would love to know about them.
When you share your dreams and your talent with the world, magic happens. Let the magic begin.
