Volunteer Activity: E Bunny delivers to sick and underserved children
Volunteer: E Bunny Group in Las Vegas
For E Bunny, Easter 2013 was challenging, but one of the most special in the past 23 years! More than 1800 Easter baskets were delivered to sick, homeless & underprivileged children throughout the Las Vegas Valley thanks to generosity of our community.
Every Easter, E Bunny reaches out to children in need and lets them know Vegas hasn’t forgotten them. From the Children’s Hospital of Nevada at UMC – to homeless children throughout the Valley – donated Easter baskets brought moments of joy, and a beloved childhood experience they would not have had without community kindness!
Volunteer Activity: Change the Poor
My little girl, Gracie, started saving up loose change she would find in order to donate it to missionaries. Those pennies, nickels, and quarters began to add up quickly. Then, she started to ask family and friends for their spare change. Her Grandpa and uncles added in dollar bills and a local Christian store also sponsors her work. In the last 18 months, this little girl has given over $1,800 to help feed orphaned children at a school in Ethiopia. She calls her ministry “Change the Poor” because that loose change can really change someone else’s life.
Volunteer Activity: Fundraising and more!
I joined a co-ed service fraternity called Alpha Phi Omega. Since fall of 2011 I have done a 200+ service hours. I have also been a part of raising over $6,000 for an organization called Charity:water that helps build clean water wells in third world countries. I was able to do this while attending Brandeis University. I can’t wait to do even more great things while I’m still at school these next few years.

Volunteer Activity: Family Advocacy Center Volunteer
Volunteer: Cherie K.
I have spent the past several months volunteering for the City of Phoenix Family Advocacy Center, after completing my internship there. I have had the privilege of working with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. It’s not exactly a glamorous position, but I have to tell you that speaking to clients after weeks of utilizing the counseling referrals and other services is joyous. So often the victims of these violent crimes experience such a profound change that they are willing to move forward with their lives, feeling more confident and express a sense of worth and confidence in themselves. It may be difficult work, but the rewards are remarkable. I am honored to be a volunteer.
Volunteer Activity: Visiting a homeless shelter with a teen
Volunteer: Elizabeth C.
I took my son and his friend to visit a homeless shelter in Washington, D.C. We were able to spend an hour listening to stories, giving encouragement and praying for a bright future. This had a noticeable effect on the men in the shelter and the teens were greatly moved by what they saw and learned. We will be visiting again soon.

“Our clients generally find themselves on the receiving end of someone else’s generosity. It is extremely empowering when they have the opportunity to be the ones Doing Good.”
