I started this blog in 2016 as a way to share service projects and spread love. See below for a more detailed explanation as to how The Summer of Love Project came to be. Fast forward 2 years… there have been many exciting changes in my life, and I’d love to continue writing about my experiences with the intentions of getting more people involved and sharing some love and happiness with you. Click here to find out what I’ve been up to. Thank you for stopping by. Happy Summer!
Why I started The Summer of Love Project (Written May 2016):
As my students completed service projects this year, they discovered an interesting trend in their research. Many places that require volunteers and donations, including food banks, soup kitchens, and homeless shelters, often have a decrease in help over the summer while the need for volunteers and goods increases during those summer months. This left me wanting to help where I can during my summer break.
Now that it’s sweet summer, I just want to give back love as it has been given so freely to me. As a teacher, summer break is a time to boost my energy, rejuvenate, and improve myself with the ultimate goal of growing personally and enhancing my teaching practices for my upcoming students. Nothing helps me grow more spiritually, mentally, and emotionally than to learn from new experiences with new souls and to love more. So that’s exactly what I plan to do. This is my personal blog to share my summer service projects in an attempt to spread a little love throughout my own life and the lives of others. If you’d like to join me, even better! What better place to start than with myself?
