We now have hundreds of Comcast Cares Day volunteer projects on the books, and you could never pick a favorite one. However, we have a nominee for one of the sweetest people we ever helped.
The video above tells the story of a 100-year-old in Olympia whose spirit is an inspiration to all who meet her. I hope the video inspires you to think young … and also to volunteer. Volunteers on Comcast Cares Day 2012 made a big difference in Laura’s life. As the video explains, their work allowed Laura to stay in her own home, living next door to her daughter. To Laura, that’s the world. To us, it’s another great Comcast Cares Day project.
Big thanks to Rebuilding Together Thurston County for allowing us the privilege of helping Laura. Big thanks to our video magician, Ed Hauge, for joining me to meet Laura and filming the video above. You can read more about this year’s projects, coming up on April 27, here.
