GOOD Idea: The BirthDay of Service
My good friend and colleague introduced me to a new concept that I will be implementing into every future birthday celebration: the BirthDay of Service project.As part of the 30th birthday festivities, my friend invited a large group to participate in a service project in order to give back to the greater community. This year's project: planting trees around Miami with TREEmendous Miami.I am encouraged by my friend's fantastic decision to impact the world, and excited to follow suit next February, starting my own annual BirthDay of Service.About this year's BirthDay of Service project site:"TREEmendous Miami consists of a dedicated group of people who like to plant trees so that we can make Miami-Dade a greener, cooler, healthier and more enjoyable environment in which to live. Our environment is our number one concern. Our mission statement describes us as volunteers united to build community pride by planting, protecting and preserving trees in Miami-Dade County."What will you do to celebrate your birthday?GOOD Idea is a new regular feature for Critically Acclaimed that focuses on service projects and positive ways to impact the world around you.
