The overwhelming heart and passion behind the mission

3. What is your role on staff?

Short term service trips and the time spent together with staff and volunteers, whether during meetings, working on certain projects or on trips

5. What is the hardest part about being a Compassion Corps volunteer?

Wanting to do so much with so little :/

6. Which project/s do you feel particularly strongly about? Why?

I love helping to plan and put on the Orphan Day 5K (previously known as the 5k2kare4kids) because it is something little that anyone can do to help in a big way and to make a big difference for children in need.

7. If you could describe Compassion Corps in one word, what would it be?


8. What is one interesting fact about you?

I grew up on an island.

10. If there is one thing that you could say to others about why or how they might become involved, what would you say?

Just DO IT… any way that you can! 🙂
