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. Most of all how did you feel about helping others today.

My goal is to get you to share with all of us your experience. Think about how much we can learn from each other. Please email me your pictures and story to so I can post them each day. I will add the trademarks, video and links for you.

CHILDREN'S HUNGER FUND, What a Difference a Box Makes!

Children's Hunger Fund main page!

The Valderrama family
This story comes to me from the Valderrama family.  Our family participated in the food pak to help the Children's Hunger Fund. Children's Hunger Fund meets the needs of hungry children by delivering Food Paks® directly to their homes through networks of local ministries. 99% of all revenue goes to programs serving children in need across America and around the world. Here is all you'll need to help!

What a Difference a Box Makes
We've found the most effective way to care for a needy family is to bring help directly to their door. CHF's Food Paks® are relationship-building tools that provide face-to-face opportunities to share the gospel through practical acts of compassion.

A Food Pak is a twenty-pound box full of nutritious foods—canned fruit and vegetables, dried beans and pasta, cooking oil, soup mix, granola bars, and peanut butter. A Food Pak may seem like a small thing, but something special happens when it is delivered to a helpless child by someone who cares.

 Why Home Delivery?
By delivering boxes of food directly to someone's home, volunteers build relationships with those they serve and get a better picture of the individual's complete needs. Do they need help finding a job, battling an addiction, or looking for housing? Home delivery helps us identify and evaluate needs allowing us to more comprehensively help children and families.

Who We Are
Children's Hunger Fund is not your typical charity. Fighting hunger is complex and we think it takes more than a handout to truly help a child. It takes relationships. We fight hunger using our unique in-home food delivery method to build trusting relationships with the needy. In short, we're making a practical, lasting difference in the lives of children and families because we get to know them. Through relationships, we can truly meet their needs.

About CHF
Children's Hunger Fund is a Christian 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that works to alleviate the suffering of children in impoverished regions across America and around the world. Through strategic partnerships in targeted communities, CHF works to improve the lives of poor children and their families comprehensively, meeting their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Since CHF began in 1991, you have helped us distribute more than $927 million in food and other resources to serve the needs of more than 10 million children in thirty-five U.S. states and seventy-two countries worldwide. Since CHF's inception, an average of 99% of our total contributions have been used for programs serving the needs of children.

Our Mission
Children's Hunger Fund seeks to alleviate the suffering of children by equipping God's church to communicate the gospel through effective compassion ministry.

What We Believe
CHF believes it's the biblical design for the church to be at the forefront of compassion work around the world. It's easy for organizations to assume the responsibility of caring for the poor and needy and to eclipse the church. In some cases charities even discourage the church from being actively involved in the world.

That is why CHF is committed to equipping the church with solid biblical training—training them how to engage their communities by caring for those in need and bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost. By helping the church better care for those in their communities in practical, loving ways, they build a natural platform from which to share the life-changing gospel of Christ.

Around the World
The problem of poverty is pervasive and can be overwhelming. Around the world, more than 1 billion people are malnourished. An estimated 1.4 billion people live on less than $1.25 a day. Every day children are dying just because they don't have enough food to eat. That's a tragedy that shouldn't be!

At Home
Though masked by our prosperity-focused culture, poverty is a serious issue right here at home. And the problem has only become more serious in our hurting economy. More than half of all poor children in America live in eight states—California, Illinois, Michigan, Texas, New York, Florida, Ohio, and Georgia. Unfortunately, the children suffer the most. No child should suffer from hunger—especially when we can do something about it!

Okay, so the problem is bad! But there is hope.

With your help Children's Hunger Fund provides solutions that work. Find out how!
