- I want to give back to an organization that’s doing good for their community. Likewise, i feel it’s important to be involved in an organization that shares some of the same beliefs as you.
- I’ve always been an animal lover, and more so, a dog lover. This organization represents a perfect blend of dog lovers, and people who want what’s best for their well being.
- I volunteer because I believe it’s important to be active within a community you believe in, and take advantage of opportunities when presented.
- As a graphic designer, I know I can bring my own unique skill set and creative contributions to this group. As a designer, you don’t always get to choose what projects or organizations you get to work with, but I chose YPB, and I’m excited for what’s to come.
- I volunteer because I know I have the ability to make some sort of impact, big or small, but an impact nonetheless, and that matters to me.
