Sure, that's no problem! No gas money required, it would be my pleasure! We can coordinate as it gets a little closer and see if anyone else wants to jump in.

I may not be able to go, I didn't realise that the 9th is a Fri. If I'm back to work, which I hope is the case, I won't have the PTO time to take off. I used it all when I fell & crushed a vertebra in my back, have been out on short term disability. I'll keep you posted, see the Dr Wed am & will have a better idea of my status.

Hi Diana,

I already responded to your second PM and took you off of the schedule, as requested. I look forward to seeing you on Saturday at the HP event! Hugs!

Hi All,

Things are getting close! Please check the first post in this thread for an important update. If you have any questions, please PM me or leave them in this thread. I will be flying in while you are volunteering, but can be reached before your shift begins. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to make this experience even more rewarding than I already know it will be!

I am so excited to do this! I was so genuinely moved by what Pamela Landwirth said on the podcast from the cruise and from the video we saw before Cars 2. I think it's going to be amazing to have the opportunity to really give back.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

I'm so sad I missed this volunteer opportunity for Give Kids the World. It would be great to go over there and give some of my time. I have a few things on their wish list that I have collected to take over. One day I will make it over there. Too bad I missed the chance to with some great people. Hopefully next time!

Hi Bleukarma,

I noticed that there are still 6 openings for the Gingerbread House on Friday morning (that's the shift that the DIS team is signed up for). If you're interested, GKTW might be able to process your paperwork quickly so you can join in. NikkiBell has been coordinating this so I don't want to speak out of turn...but if you would like to do it, maybe you can send her a PM and see if it is possible?

And if not this time, I'm sure there will be other opportunities! GKTW will always be ready to welcome volunteers

Are you interested? If so, PM me your first and last name. I'll contact GKTW and see if this is still a possibility being that there is room on the schedule there. Please let me know ASAP.

It's too late for me to get the day off work If I would've joined the boards earlier then I would've known about it and would be able to schedule time, but this close to Friday, I can't do it. Hopefully I will be able to join you guys in the future. I will keep my eye on this section of the boards.

So I'm scheduled to volunteer at GKTW on Thursday (I'd committed to that way before this group opportunity came up.) I just got a call from GKTW, and the woman who called was kind of appalled that I was planning on taking a taxi from Pop Century to GKTW. She suggested Mears (they couldn't offer anything besides a town car at $47 each way or a taxi at $30 each way) or the bus. The bus sounded OK until I checked and it would take a minimum of 3 buses and almost 2 hours each way!

I'm wondering if I'm over thinking this, and should just switch to volunteering with you guys on Friday (if you'll have me!) and if there's room in a car with you guys. I was going to call them back (she gave me a direct number, although I didn't catch her name!) and see what they thought after I checked with you guys & saw what you thought.

So, what do you think? Honestly, I'd rather give the $60 to GKTW...
