Volunteer your remarketable gifts and become more marketable!

Volunteer and Market Yourself…Remarkably

“Remarkable Marketable Mehelps you share your remarkable gifts volunteering, making you more marketable along the way.

By Jean Robb

I didn’t have the best childhood. We didn’t have much, so if you needed something you had to find a way to get it. I started working at 11 years old selling candy door to door. I know very scary right, but at 11 years old all I knew was I had to sell a certain amount of candy before I could go home. When I knocked on a door, out came my foot and I didn’t move it until you bought a box of candy. The skills I learned from my difficult childhood, (my lemons) really became a blessing (my lemonade).

I learned at a really young age that persistence will open many doors. As an adult I have walked out on a stage with a tiger after Zig Ziglar and talked to over 2,000 people about overcoming their fears. I know you must be thinking…a tiger? I have volunteered for over 15 years with big cat sanctuaries and have learned you can do something you really love while helping others in remarkable ways. In today’s economy you hear lots of people say they can’t find a job. So what happens?

The longer you’re out of work, you start to lose your contacts. You’re not keeping up with the day-to-day changes in your trade. You’re simply out of the loop. The longer you’re in this position the more the fear sets in. What if I can’t find a job? I have so much to offer, how do I get someone to talk to me? Well as you can see, fear can really take a hold of you, it makes you feel like a deer in the headlights. How do you overcome these things?

First off, STOP listening to the FEAR and STOP making EXCUSES. Look, I’ve made many of the same excuses when I’ve let fear be a part of my life. I now realize that the answer to overcoming the fear is to replace it with remarkable things you can be proud of. Instead of asking why would anyone want to hire me, ask yourself why not me?

After volunteering you could say. Look at the change I’ve made in the lives of others. Look what I’ve learned along the way. Look at the skills I’ve been taught while helping others. Look at the great people I’ve met. They’ve seen first hand the type of passion I put into any job I take on. So how will this work? I have made a commitment to bring you a volunteering opportunity at least once a week. The process of volunteering can be more complicated than people may think.

I have included in each story all the information I received and the direct contacts to make it really easy for you to get your foot in the door.Network, Network, Network” See how you can use that experience to build your resume.

Parkland burn camp hosts benefit golf tournament
Monday, September 20 · 8:30am - 4:00pm

LocationTimarron Country Club
1400 Byron Nelson Parkway
Southlake, TX

Created By

The ninth annual Camp I-Thonka-Chi Benefit Golf Tournament will be held Monday, Sept. 20 at Timarron Country Club in Southlake. Tournament proceeds help children with burn injuries attend Parkland's Camp I-Thonka-Chi, a summer camp designed especially for them.

This one-day tournament, the camp's largest fundraiser each year, is an 18-hole best ball scramble with 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. shotgun starts. The event also includes a s...ilent auction throughout the day and a dinner to honor tournament winners and sponsors at 6:30 p.m. in the course clubhouse.

Camp I-Thonka-Chi relies on the generosity of private donors as well as participants in the annual golf tournament to help send kids to camp each year.

Since 1992, Parkland's burn camp has helped hundreds of children and teenagers by providing a place for them to interact with peers who have experienced similar circumstances. Children ages 6 to 18 years build friendships, improve social skills and simply have fun without being self conscious of their scars or injuries. Camp is held each year at Camp John Marc in Meridian, Texas, where campers participate in a variety of activities including horseback riding, swimming, fishing, archery, arts and crafts, boating and other activities.

Spots are still available for both morning and afternoon flights. For a tournament entry form or more information, call 214.590.2920, toll-free at 800.850.1477 or visit

Thank you to all of the campers, counselors, volunteers and staff that made 2010 another great year for Camp I-Thonka-Chi!
We now shift our focus to the ninth annual Camp I-Thonka-Chi Benefit Golf Tournament, September 20 at Timarron Country Club in Southlake, Texas. For more information about participation or sponsorship, see the links below.
Burn camp is a great way for children and teens to
have fun in a caring setting.
CAMP I-THONKA-CHI gives children the chance to meet others who have also been burned. The camp is staffed by warm and caring people who help children feel good about themselves. Children can share their feelings and learn many new and exciting things! This all takes place in the relaxing beauty of the great outdoors. The camp is supported solely by donations and volunteers.

  1. Shelly, thanks so much for keeping us in the loop of the important things Parkland Hospital is doing to help others.

  2. Anytime! With nursing school and starting a new job I have found it hard to make it up to Parkland to volunteer. I am hoping my schedule will allow me to make it up there soon. Parkland is an awesome hospital and seems to always be doing great things.

  3. Thanks so much Jean!
