I love doing volunteer work, nothing is more satisfying than giving back to the world community where help is needed in anyway. I've done volunteer work for as long as I can remember in some form or fashion. I am always amazed and excited at the venues that open allowing people to help at a distance. Another way the internet makes this large planet of ours seem so much smaller.Recently I had my own apartment flood here in Albuquerque. Mine wasn't through hurricane or weather, it was because the city was doing work on sewage lines and they forced huge mounts of sewage backwards into my home, and I lost almost everything. It was fairly devastating. Fortunately for us, we have a great deal of help and another place to call home. I didn't lose any of my photos, and few of my keepsakes, they were not in the apartment. What would I have done had I lost my children's photos? Memories I could never hold or recreate? It would crush me like nothing else I could imagine. I'm so glad to have found this project, and I am looking forward to doing whatever I can to contribute to the most wonderful cause. :loveit:

I keep all my photo discs in one place, 'cause if my house ever catches fire, they are the first thing I'll grab (since the kids are all grown and gone). Losing my photos would break my heart, and my heart breaks for those who lost theirs. If I can help just a few families get some of their past back, how can I not?
