Since returning from Guatemala, I’ve had this awesome feeling of wanting to do more. I figured the best way to fulfill my desire was to volunteer in the School the World office. The things I help with are really basic— usually writing and addressing Thank You notes to the many donors STW gets donations from— but it makes me feel like I’m doing something really good and I know it’s helpful. Having a lot of thank you notes to write is a good thing, it means more and more people are donating to help the students in Guatemala. You won’t find many other places where licking a ton envelopes makes you happy! I’ve learned how much work it takes to keep STW going and I love helping out with odd jobs. While there, I'm always reminded of being in Guatemala with the kids. The pictures around the room of those happy, sweet children make me feel almost as amazing as I did actually being with them. Being in the STW office has become one of my favorite parts of the week!
