Volunteer and Market Yourself…Remarkably

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

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.

Hi, Jean Robb here. As many of you know I've been a supporter of Invisible Children for a while now. It's amazing to me that a combined group of young people can accomplish so much. Whether you were a supporter of Kony 2012 or not you have to be impressed with the progress of Invisible Children and the fight to make a difference! Here's the latest news letter and the progress to make change. I hope other kids see the efforts and become a voice for others in need of help!

You are a maven.
Also known as the early adopters of a new technology, or those with their ear to the ground of what's coming, mavens lead the charge because they see the future. And the rest of the world falls in line.

You were standing with us well before KONY 2012, well before lines were drawn in the sand, and well before Joseph Kony became a household name. You had the insight to see an end to LRA violence, an end to the use of child soldiers, an end to the apathy of the world, and the beginning of creative and thoughtful response to global problems. Because of the solid base of supporters like you who believe that these things are possible, they are all within reach.

The last couple of months have been the most intense period of global engagement in the history of the LRA conflict. By FAR. The unexpected, monumental news of the May 14th capture of top LRA commander Caesar Achellam was unbelievably encouraging as he holds one of the highest ranks within the LRA and is a leading influence in the group's operations. It is a major victory for everyone interested in seeing an end to LRA violence.

And just as we were dealing with the overdose of excitement about Achellam and the turning of advocacy wheels, the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs unanimously passed the Kony 2012 Resolution. The Resolution is a commitment to support the international effort to end LRA violence and arrest Joseph Kony, with a special focus on civilian protection, regional cooperation, and rehabilitation programs for affected communities. Read the fine print about the resolution (H. Res. 583) here. Just to be clear - this is a big deal.


Another hugely significant step was the United Nations Security Council meeting on June 29 where they discussed the strategy for arresting Joseph Kony and dismantling the LRA. Invisible Children took advantage of this meeting at the UN to deliver the signatures of 3,729,815 people from countries all over the globe who had signed the pledge to stop the LRA. While conversations about the LRA among world leaders are encouraging, we must hold decision-makers accountable to be swift and responsible in the strategizing and implementing of action.

We are entering one of the most important political seasons in history. The fate of the LRA hinges on the decisions made in the months ahead. It is IMPERATIVE that our determination to see global justice be seen, heard and represented on every street corner, school hallway, store window, political rally, and car bumper in every neighborhood around the globe. Our back-in-stock Action Kit can be used to full advantage in showing the world that we're making the final half of 2012 be the loudest, boldest, and bravest of our generation.

We are so thankful to count you as a supporter.

Love, Invisible Children
