First things first dear readers. I have a favour to ask that will take exactly one minute of your time. I’ve joined the UBC Votermedia Blog Awards with this blog under a new name – UBC Years (a continuation of IB Years I guess haha). You can show your love for this blog (you know it =P) by voting for me. The instructions are explained on the site, here’s a simplified version.
- Any UBC student can vote, sign in to CWL and enroll for the VoterMedia “course” on Vista
- Click Begin Assessment, then pick how $200 should be distributed among the participants (if you really looooove UBC Years, then put 200/0/0/0/0 etc. or 150/10/10/10 etc. It doesn’t have to total $200)
- Click submit! Repeat in a week =D
Description in ten words or less: call sponsors/donors, thank them, make a difference!
My two cents: for one reason or another, volunteer often gets pushed to second (or third) place after high school. After all, why bothere when there are no more graduation requirements and no university supplemental essays to fill?! I think the whole deal with volunteer hours in HS defeats the whole purpose of “volunteering”! Why is it called volunteer if you’re forced to do it? Thank-a-thon is just one of several volunteer outings that CCP is organizing this year. Show that you really care by coming out =D
