JOIN A Mother’s Shadow Community Project

Ways to Volunteer
How Can YOU Help?

We get to have the BEST time together!  I’ll tell you all about it in just a minute.

Have you found the SERVICE OPPORTUNITY picture on the main page of my blog?  

I hope so!

It’s one of my many (well, they all are my favorite :lol: ), but this is a very special place to visit.



When you visit that page, I have LOTS of ideas of how you, or your family, or as group of friends, can get together to serve and help someone.

See, it’s all set out to find a project that is a small one to a large one. Kinda like the bowls of porridge that Goldilocks found, you will find one that’s ‘Just Right’ for YOU! 

NOW, for my very exciting news about how we all get to work together!

I’m happy dancin right now, because this is the VERY FIRST A Mother’s Shadow Friends and community Service Project Opportunity that we are going to work on together!  -whew, that’s a mouthful  :-D 



Well, this is the plan:

Beginning NOW, and going through September, would you please raise money somehow by a garage sale, bake sale, walk-a-thon, anything creative you can think of!




Between NOW and the end of September please



Find our more about these organizations HERE on my Service Page (or one that you love)

Days For Girls




Let us know how you raised money, or found a way to donate to THIS or any other wonderful organization that you support, by commenting and it will show at the bottom in the comments linked to THIS page.  We will be excited to read and be inspired by YOU!

Let’s make miracles happen! and remember Recognize A Blessing And Be A Blessing Today

  1. Oh wow, Carrie, what a tremendously marvelous idea!!
    But, I’m not sure I can participate, since I just spent 24 hours decluttering my entire house, shed, porch, and workshop!! I think I’ve hauled off a literal ton of stuff!
    But, I’ll try again closer to Sept, and see if I can come up with anything else!!

    • I hope you get a chance maybe later in September to do this, but if not, that’s ok. I will be having continual service opportunist going. So if this one doesn’t work, watch for the next one:)

  2. Hi Carrie!

    I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for your service page, some savvy teens and I are getting a lot of use from it! Our newly born “Art from the Heart” club has been brainstorming service projects we could do over the summer so we’ve been searching all over for inspiration. That’s how we stumbled onto your page here,’s been tough finding non-spammy sites for the kids so you have our thanks!

    Your page gave us some great ideas to start out on our endeavor. As token of our thanks we wanted to share another resource that one of our superstars Mia found, it’s a very detailed guide of ways to send care packages to the troops plus other ideas of ways to help too. Some of the ideas could probably be applied to care packages for others in need aside as well, let us know what you think:

    Home care packages for our troops-

    Hopefully you like it too! Maybe you might even find it useful for your page? If you do decide to add it I’ll be sure to show Mia and the gang you liked her find. I love sharing so if you have any needs or cool project ideas please pass them on! Thanks again and sorry for rambling, I’m excited about this connection. :o)

    Cheers and well wishes,

    Nancy Mitchell

    • Thank you so much Nancy for that wonderfully inspiring email!
      Your girls are a breath of fresh air in this day and to know that they are looking to serve and help others with such a determined spirit.
      Your project for our troops is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! I wanted to make sure all our readers can use this resource and can help in this are also!
      You and your girls are such a tremendous example, and I can’t tell you what a privilege it is to have your email/comment as a part of this Service project.
      I send my gratitude, respect and best wishes in all the good you do!!!
      Carrie Groneman
