Today, 4/20, is Volunteer Recognition Day! 

Volunteer Recognition Day honors the legions of volunteers who dedicate themselves to causes and helping others. They are making big and small differences in the lives of millions of people all over the world. They are saving lives. They are improving lives and providing comfort. They assist people, animals, and nature.

Most volunteers do not ask for recognition. They just want to  help and to “give back” where they can. Click HERE to find out more about Volunteer Recognition Day.

Celebrate this “Volunteer Recognition Day by:

What am I doing that I shouldn’t be?  What am I doing that is adding stress but not adding value?  New York Times bestseller, Ruth Soukup, wrote a book called Unstuffed, declutter your home, mind and soul.
