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.

Email me your news. 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.

ASPCA ....In the arms of an angel, we'll get a second chance.
Click on the above link to see the ASPCA page. Please help!

All animals deserve our love and respect
Hi Jean Robb here. 
I'm going to make the ASPCA one of this weeks projects. I have three dogs and three cats, all of them are rescued. They have all brought so much joy into my life. Truly God sent me six angels. With so many animals needing a good home please consider adoption. I also give financially to the ASPCA. With your help they can continue to provide the care needed to return all the animals to good health and find homes with someone like you. Please take a minute to 
Take The Pledge to Fight Animal Cruelty. Please be the arms of the angel these animals are waiting for.

An angel walks beside me, I feel him everyday, he helps me through lives ups and downs, and whatever comes my way.
He guides me down the road of life, and lights the darkest roads, he picks me up and carries me, when I can not bear the load. He helps to ease the pain I feel, he mends my spirit, too, he holds my paw, and shelters me, I'll be his best friend true. He speaks to me with words of love, and he listens to my pleas, he was sent here from the lord above, to guide and comfort me. I'm in the arms of an angel now, I've got my second chance. The endlessness has been replaced with a happy dance.

The reality of hoarding

You saved this puppy, help us save thousands more
Earlier this year, the ASPCA traveled to Waynesboro, TN, to assist in the rescue of 85 dogs from a hoarder. One of those dogs was this innocent puppy. She—along with dozens of Shepherds, Labradors and Hound mixes—was discovered living in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions. She was just a number—abandoned to fend for herself, until a nurturing hand arrived to carry her to safety.

Most of the rescued dogs were transferred to ASPCA partner agencies, including Nashville Humane Association and the Atlanta Humane Society. Local veterinarians and volunteers assisted with on-site medical needs, including treating the pups for heartworm.

This little puppy’s second chance came courtesy of the support of our loyal and passionate members. Without your sustenance, many more puppies would be left to suffer silently. Please help us give abused and abandoned animals the opportunity they rightly deserve to enjoy lives free of pain and full of comfort. Your donation directly helps animals like this and so many others who still need our support.

Please continue to reach out to those who need us most.

Ten Ways to Help Animals in Your Community

So, you want to help animals in your own community, but just aren’t sure where to begin? Well, the good news is there are many ways an animal lover can make a difference. From assisting in the care and placement of shelter animals to educating the public on animal welfare issues, to fighting for stronger animal legislation—here are ten ways you can make a difference for animals in your community.
1. Learn How to Report Animal Cruelty. One of the best things you can do to help animals in your community is to keep a list of people, including a humane law enforcement officer, a teacher, your parents or your veterinarian who can help you report animal cruelty. Every state is different. In some areas, the police department investigates animal cruelty; in others, local animal control or another municipal agency. If you aren't sure where to report cruelty, visit our Report Animal Cruelty section.
2. Start a Neighborhood Watch Program. Get to know the animals in your neighborhood and invite your friends and neighbors to do the same. Together you can keep an eye out for any suspicious behaviors—abuse and neglect of companion animals, the mistreatment of local wildlife, dogs left in hot cars and other signs of abuse.
3. Volunteer at Your Local Shelter or Animal Rescue Organization. Volunteering at your local shelter is a great way to make a difference in the lives of many animals. From walking dogs and organizing fundraising events to fostering abused or frightened animals, shelters across the country are in desperate need of volunteers. Be sure to visit our Ten Ways to Help Your Local Shelter for more suggestions.
4. Become an Animal Activist. Visit our lobby section to find out everything you can do to raise awareness for animal rights.
  • Call or write your local law enforcement officials. Let them know that animal cruelty is a crime and investigating these cases should be a priority.
  • Help fight for the passage of strong anti-cruelty laws on federal, state and local levels by joining the ASPCA Advocacy Brigade. As a brigade member, you’ll receive emails asking you to contact your legislators and encourage them to pass these laws—and you can send them directly from our website.
5. Help Your Neighbors Help Their Animals. Companion animals play significant roles in the lives of the people who love them—but sometimes the elderly or ill have trouble providing essential pet care. If you see a neighbor in need, offer to assist—walk his dog, help with feeding, clean litter boxes, groom animals, pick up pet food and other supplies, drive him to the veterinarian, etc.
6. Start a Pet Food Bank. See if there is a pet food pantry in your area and volunteer your time to help distribute the much needed pet food. If there isn’t, consider starting one up. Host pet food drives, similar to canned food drives, in central locations of your community such as shopping centers and schools. For more detailed information on starting a pet food bank, visit Animal Shelter Tips.
7. Start a Shelter. Believe it or not, there are still many communities throughout the United States that do not have access to a shelter or humane society. Starting a shelter isn’t easy, but with the right tools and enough help, opening a shelter can ultimately save countless lives. To learn how to open a shelter in your community, visit our Start a Shelter  page.
8. Promote Spaying and Neutering. Millions of adoptable cats and dogs are put to sleep in shelters every year. By spaying and neutering your animals, you’ll make sure that you are not contributing to the problem. You can also take this a step further by developing a spay/neuter outreach program in your community. Visit our Spay/Neuter Database to see who in your community offers low-cost spay/neuter programs. Create flyers promoting the organizations that offer discounts in your area and pass them out at central locations in your community such as shopping centers, pet supply stores and schools.
9. Clean Up for Wildlife. Wild animals need protection, too. Birds, mammals and reptiles are often injured or killed by the trash we throw away. Help implement a cleanup and recycling plan in your community by organizing weekend trash cleanups in local parks, roadsides and forests.
10. Become an ASPCA Ambassador and Fundraise for Animals. ASPCA Ambassadors create their own grassroots events and invite friends and family to become sponsors on behalf of the ASPCA. Whether you decide to run a marathon for animals, plan a pet parade or have an orange bake sale, your grassroots fundraising efforts will help us achieve our goal to end animal cruelty and find permanent, loving homes for America’s adoptable pets. Once your plans are in place, register your unique event on the ambassador site to share with animal lovers everywhere.
