Giving to a charity doesn’t always have to be in dollars and cents -volunteering your time can be just as rewarding. At Scrubbi, we’ve created a culture of giving back. Meet customer satisfaction superstar Laura, she makes sure all our customers are WOWED. In her spare time, Laura regularly gives her time to various causes and recently ended up having a day she dubbed “Charity Triple Sunday”.
Read on to learn about her day:
“Volunteering your time can be just has helpful to a charity as a donation. Recently I had a day where I spent most of it donating my time and energy to 3 different charities. It started in the morning going to the gym. Sure, sure, it’s just the gym. But during the month of October, my gym, 30 Minute Hit, hosts a fundraiser benefiting the BC Cancer Foundation. People sponsor me as I pledge to go through the circuit a certain amount of times. I pledged 31 so I needed to fit it in every day.
Once I was finished and freshened up I headed to Vancouver for the next charity function. Avalon Recovery Society had a fun event – Runway for Recovery – a fashion show with the proceeds going to the centre. I was asked to walk the runway for a local clothing store, Edge. This one was definitely out of the comfort zone (!!) but was great fun (check out one of my outfits below! Swoon-worthy indeed.)
Later in the evening I headed to my regular volunteer shift with the White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society. I have been a volunteer with them for some time now and spend the evening with different families, providing comfort during a very trying time.
Long day but so worth it!”
There are so many different ways to volunteer and make a difference. We would love to hear about your work in your community! #scrubbilovesvolunteers
