The Calligrapher's Life

Just another weblog

Volunteer and Inspire

Where can you go to do what you love while helping your favorite cause?

Show appreciation for your preferred charity and join me this month as I show off my calligraphy skills for an event run by a national organization called  

Last semester, a calligraphy classmate who volunteers for the annual event called Walk for Hope, introduced the organization to our class. She recognized our ability as calligraphers, both novice and professional, could make an impact with our artistry during this one-day walk event.

Our class instructor loved the idea and encouraged each student to volunteer and submit a quote for this cause. She expressed her excitement about this opportunity for new calligraphers to challenge themselves while motivating walkers from the community. So, I’m taking on the challenge and I hope you would, too. welcomes volunteers to write a quote on an 18 x 24 inch of firm paper or cardstock (check the website for more details).  If you’re willing to help, please act now. The final date to submit your finished quote ends on Oct. 1, 2010.

If you’re not a calligrapher, it’s still okay to send in a neatly written quote. It would make a huge difference for the walk. The more the merrier.

Unable to volunteer? Take the opportunity to stroll through the lavish greenery and tranquil ponds with other inspired walkers at El Dorado Park in Long Beach on a Saturday morning, October 16, 2010.

Sound like fun? Feel free to register for the walk…it’s free. (Parking fees for park entrance.)

Walk for Hope, a one-day event, provides walkers of all fitness levels with an inspirational walk as they appreciate hand-lettered signs with motivational quotes posted throughout the park.
