WHAT YOU CAN DO

the world is your oyster.
there are so many great things you can do for others.

we would like to list out just two for you to get you started!!

1) Social media is a power tool. We, at bonds between generations, would like to encourage you to be a part of the catalyst to use it positively by hash tagging your stories with either #bbg or #bondsbetweengenerations. LET'S FACE IT. yOU DON'T HAVE TO HOST A TALENT SHOW OR AN EVENT AT YOUR LOCAL RETIREMENT HOME TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. THE LITTLE THINGS MATTER TOO! YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE SIMPLY BY GIVING THE MOST PRECIOUS THING YOU COULD GIVE TO ANYONE IN THE WORLD: your TIME. 
GET TO KNOW SOMEONE WHO LIVED DECADES BEFORE YOU AND SHARE IT ON IG, FACEBOOK, OR TWITTER. WE WOULD EVEN LOVE TO SEE YOU SHARE JUST A TIDBIT ABOUT YOUR GRANDMOTHER, YOUR GRANDFATHER or go into a local retirement home near you and get to know the residents. POST A PICTURE AND CAPTION WHAT YOU LEARNED! JUST DON'T FORGET TO HASHTAG!!

2) If you're someone who is interested in starting the movement in your area, you're welcome to reach out to our founder, @shivalipatel247@Gmail.com to get some guidance. Reaching out to the volunteer coordinator and expressing interest in organizing an event for the resident is another great way to get involved. Either way, take tons of pictures if you do the latter and send them to us! we would love to feature them!!!

and most importantly, have fun with it!!!! volunteering almost always is, emotionally, physically, and spiritually so here's a little cheers to making new friends and connecting!!!!!
