Having to pick a favourite one makes me have a mini-breakdown because every single one of them left a little mark in my heart.
Step Up to Eat Up was the first one, and it set the entire week’s mood. It had been a while since I saw so many excited vollies together to do good. The event was full of adrenaline, everyone had a task, and everyone was doing their best to make as many sandwiches as possible for kids in schools all around NSW.
Knit with love was incredibly special too, mostly about learning and making something you can be proud of once you finish your little square (even if it means struggling a bit (or a lot) at first), it was incredibly wholesome.
Day 2’s Cards with Care in person was fabulous, not only did I see bursts of creativity around the whole room, but I also felt all the love and care that was put to each one of the beautiful cards. Everyone was sharing, enjoying it, and having a good time.
Day 3’s Thread Together was a ton of work, and after it I felt exhausted. But it was the kind of work you feel great after doing it, the kind of work that gives you a sense of achievement. That nice feeling in your bones, you feel when you just did something of value. That was thread together.
Last but not least, day 4’s OzHarvest Volunteering was incredibly amazing, we did not just get to pack hampers for families and individuals, which was incredibly fun. But we also got to help out at the market, and have direct contact with the people, which was extremely heartwarming giving us the chance to make some people’s day a tiny bit better (being something I could have not asked for more). Putting a perfect bow on an outstanding week.
