Quickie: Volunteering at one place has come to an end.

Before we get started, I want to wish all of my readers a Very Merry Christmas!

Sooner or later, all good things come to an end. And in my heart, I knew that I was a person one would want to keep in the background instead of out front.  I enjoyed working with the folk at NPW while it lasted. However, they have developed the skills needed to maintain their web site by themselves, and I no longer need to help them out. Although I have offered my services for non-computer work, I doubt they will take me up on my offer.

Do I feel sad?  A little. But I have accomplished something they would never have been able to have done without my help. And I am looking for new places which could use my unique skill set. Yet, for the most part, I feel proud about what I've accomplished during the time I helped them.

NPW's office looks noting like the office above.  And I doubt it will grow enough to require space it rents for itself. Its mission is one that can be filled by a very small, focused group of people.  I wish it the best of success.

Why do I note the smallness of the organization?  Most non profits employ a handful of people, and depend on volunteer help.  Now that we're in the middle of Holiday Season, I'd like my readers to think about this and lend a helping hand to the non profit of their choice, so that next Christmas will be a better one for all of us.

Merry Christmas!!
