Talk about giving back to your community, well that what Project 33 does. This group is led by Dee-Dee Hill, who with other comes up with different projects to do. They do 33 projects a years. As a group they get together and pick out different types of project for them and their children to do.
Dee-Dee wanted to make sure that her children were doing project and so she and a group of moms and dads got together and started Project 33. Having the children give back to the community is really what’s important to this group. Showing them how to help and give back.
This is a great way to start volunteering. This group is always looking for new volunteers and it’s a great way to get your children involve. I was very privilege in October of 2010 to honor this group with a certificate from the Governor. I have Dee-Dee since high school, this is such an amazing group that she started.
What is Project 33? From their web site “Project 33 finds as many ways as possible for families and children to give back to the community through volunteering, fund raising and every day good deeds. Get children involved in giving back teaches them empathy and gives them a view of the world they may otherwise lack. Children will teach each other and learn from each other and through working together they will build a better future for themselves.

The plan of action: Project 33 collects clothing for homeless children, raises funds to find a cure for cancer, promotes literacy in children of poverty, and works with other organizations to send forth a cleaner, healthier plant.
Project 33 is coming into it’s fourth year of service and in honor of this milestone, we are challenging all of our loyal volunteers and new friends to complete 33 acts of kindness on your own this year. This might include a day serving food to the homeless, taking a shelter animal for a walk, or just buying coffee for the person in line behind you. This discussion post will be a place for you to record your acts of kindness, keeping track of how many you do and also sharing ideas so we can all join in with new things we may not have thought of before. You are welcomed to wear your Project 33 shirt to these individual events and represent our amazing group, encouraging others to join in. In addition to logging your hours here, post on your facebook page and/or the Project 33 Group page what you did and how others can do it too. Lets make 2011 about planting the seed of giving in more people through our own individual good deeds.
Serving others and planting the seed of giving in our children’s hearts.
GO Help Someone!
Project 33 dedicates its service to the memory of George Ostrander who inspires us to continue giving back, one project at a time.
