It’s been a while since I donated my time and I decided that I should. There have been many different ideas rattling round but I decided I wanted to do something soon. I submitted to Wanderlust in the City for Auckland and thankfully, they accepted me. I’ll be helping out at the festival, and this to me is just awesome. I’ve been super psyched about Wanderlust hitting our shores and have thought about how much I want to go. When I started to think about volunteering, I didn’t immediately think to do it for Wanderlust, because I wanted to attend, and then I realised, wouldn’t it be great to attend by giving? I decided to change what I think I wanted my Wanderlust experience to be, and I want to help the organisers put on a great event, and I want to positively impact attendees too.
I definitely need to think harder about my time this year and how I can make time to volunteer some more this year.
I’m now considering how else I can help out, starting with my hair. I think I might chop and donate it before the end of this year. Lastly, I will continue to donate to the organisations that my husband and I have already nominated.
