And then those same crazy, dedicated folks go home to a place where there's power and internet and they share. They share their photos with me so I can share them with you. They share their ideas. They share their concerns. This is when the real work gets done - at 10PM on a Thursday night, on a laptop computer. With kids, husbands, wives, etc either milling around you or sound asleep in their beds upstairs.
I was wondering tonight - what do all our lovely volunteer folks DO when they are not here volunteering? I am embarrassed to admit that despite all the time I spend with them, I for the most part have no idea. I mean, I know Rupert is on about 78 million boards and committees for various things. And I know he has bee hives at home. Aaaaand... that's all I've got.
So let's learn a bit more about us, can we? Let's share. Post a little something in the blog comments or on the Facebook page. What do you do with yourselves when you're not volunteering with FHI?
I'll start - I am a stay-at-home mom. My kids are five and almost two. I do a vast majority of FHI social media stuff during nap time and after kids are in bed. I started with FHI in 2003 and I have done everything from Special Events to Endurance Ride Manager to Driving Stable Manager to my current role as Social Media Person.
How about you? What's your story?
