According to Sharon:
"We have a responsibility to give back. It doesn’t take a lot of effort, knowledge or skills, just willingness to help.
Begin somewhere, there are needs in your city, neighborhood you just have to look for it. Or go on a trip, join us or other groups who are successfully doing projects to help. It’s really simple, just do it."
