We’re mixing up a delicious cocktail at Tapa Palapa. The recipe can only be made in large quantities, but that’s okay because it’s for sharing. After all, “Life Is Bigger Than You.”
All month long we’ll be talking about sharing your time, talent, and treasure for the greater good. This week’s ingredient is very valuable. It’s your time, which can’t be replaced. So you get to decide how much to mix in, a big slosh or just a splash.

In this episode Francie and Steve explore lots of ways to share your time, everything from involved, complicated, long-term programs right down to simple acts of being involved with people around you. Francie introduces us to “slacktivisim,” and Steve has other ideas for making it really really really simple to give your time. Warning: Steve said he lost his “funny,” so his suggestions are – ahem – kind of blunt.
Please leave a comment or a question to join the conversation. Is there a cause that you support that you want to tell us about? What memorable experiences have you had volunteering your time? Do you have some additional simple ways that even people who are busy can share their time and make a difference?
