2015 ‘Day of Caring’

I have not been actively updating this page in a while until now. As of today I will re-engage in my journal efforts with my compassionate journey details.

This year, on September 18th is the United Way sponsored Day of Caring, in which my goal is to organize at least one, if not more, volunteer teams. The deadline for submitting a project is July 18th. Until that date in July, I will be actively discussing the opportunity with my church, TNC in Seattle, and a few other worthy non-profit entities that may need the services of a volunteer team.

Repeat my life commitment statement:

I currently am freelancing in Digital Art: Photography, Digital Storytelling, Videography, Graphics, Web design.
I also work part-time as an Independent Living Specialist / Advocate / Assistive Technology Coordinator
My personal skills and life-hobby, if you will, is photojournalism and story telling.

My self-respect, My-Faith, My-Family, Volunteerism, Caring for the disabled, Feeding the Hungry, Sheltering the Homeless, Documenting and Telling their Stories to All Who Will Listen for As Long As Life is Present. Social responsibility, Social Justice and Advocacy, These are my priorities put in order, I share with others their importance to me. I believe through sharing my faith, my hope, and my love, I show acknowledgment, I share my compassion, and my time with those who lack the same, then I set an example for my life circle for all to see.

Daily as I encounter people bound by negativity, doubt and fear all around me, I remind myself I am a dim lit candle in the darkness, I help to bring light to the lost in the dark and draw them to the light that directs me, by inviting them to be the love and hope and value, sharing life with others is truly what makes us free. Then finding solutions together, removes fear and doubt, renews hope, builds confidence and seeks new direction.

I believe my circle of life and energy is bonded with the invisible chain of other circles, connected to each other by the same spirit. The spirit of community, peace and love our mission, we believe it, live it, we breathe it.

As each step is taken to Give of one’s self, two things happen.

#1 a sense of fulfillment and purpose is achieved, almost like the feeling of being complete, or as a piece of a one’s life puzzle is found.

#2 a witness to others in a person’s life circle is present.
This is a non-verbal testimony of purpose with clarity and focus.
Sharing that purpose and direction with others verbally is the key to spreading the message of hope and the tug on a fellow man’s heart towards commitment to others in need.
True satisfaction in life comes from taking steps towards a life with real purpose, and a focus on someone or something greater than one’s self.

Sharing the witness from participants in my church’s missions project, “Homes of Hope”, specific to the Ensenada area, helping build housing for the poor. I recorded the two morning services for the families who wanted to share it with other family members. My church is St. Luke’s Lutheran Church Bellevue, WA.

Helping create lasting memories

It is becoming more Inescapable, seeing people who are suffering, living on the street, holding a cardboard sign by an intersection or freeway entrance, etc.

Some of us might give a few bucks to that person in need, but many more of us are giving in a different way, a way that is more visibly helping and where we can see our efforts do some real good. This last week I donated 4 hours of my life in taking pictures of a fashion show for an organization that helps low income families with food and clothing as well as sponsored events to strengthen or encourage these families. The event was a fashion show intended to be a mother daughter time for sharing and making each one feel special.I stood behind my lens and captured their time of fun and family. I am thankful I was able to give of my time and help capture some smiles and positive memories.
