Comments for a Cause! In the month of September I had a total of 41 comments, equaling a $20.50 donation to the Hampton Public Library.
In the month of October I'm excited to be donating $0.50 for every comment to the Iowa 4-H Foundation. I'm also planning on sharing more about 4-H next week during National 4-H Week (October 5-11) through my 31 Days from a Tractor Seat series.
I was involved in 4-H as a youth and I credit this activity for helping me explore my interests and ultimately helped me choose the major of agricultural communications for college. Because 4-H gave me so much, I wanted to give back immediately. I began judging 4-H projects and contest at the age of 19 and have volunteered with my county 4-H program for the past six years. For my local county Extension program I am the Communications Project Leader, chaperon conferences, help during the County Fair, serve on the Extension Council Nominating Committee, and have been a 4-H Club Leader.
And I'm excited to give back one more way this month, by highlighting 4-H as my Comments for a Cause organization. Help me give back by commenting all month long. Were you in 4-H? What does 4-H mean to you? Remember to Comment for a Cause!
