The morning I left for San Francisco was far from typical. I barely slept that night because once again I was about to experience a first with Camp Zeno! The thought of an RV road trip was beyond any dream of ‘things to experience’ at camp. It would be a journey that would be hard to top, and once again being with my Zeno family would definitely yield me an experience that would last me my lifetime.
In fall of 2010 I had the idea of creating a non-profit to help encourage, organize and fund volunteerism on a global level. I’d just taken my first trip to India and knew in my heart it was the right thing to be doing at a time when our world needs it most. Cool. So what do you do next?
In the wake of the recent tragedies, the state of our economy, and on going wars, we would like to offer a challenge to our readers today. We ask that you take it upon yourselves to perform one selfless act of kindness for someone you do not know. While this could be someone you find that is in obvious need, we also encourage you to reach out to people that may not seem in immediate need. Truly everyone could use a little LLYOV this holiday season.
We’ve noticed that the news has been filled in recent days with stories of people doing good deeds for one another and while we love the message this spreads we challenge you to Tell No One. We hope this spreading of LLYOV will continue like an endless chain wrapping our planet in random acts of kindness eternally.
Baby it’s cold outside! Not exactly my favorite weather, I will take a beach over snowy mountains any day. Sometimes though we cannot travel or it’s just too cold/wet to go out and play. We call these opportunities “Staycations”. Grab your loved ones and have a special day where you do something new and maybe a little “weird”. Here are some Staycation Holiday ideas to keep you cozy and warm:
