Above: I have offered my expertise to the Friends of Niguel-Moulton Ranch to prevent the destruction of the last 7 acres of Orange County's history in the southern part of the county. After three years of negotiating with the City of Aliso Viejo, the group was able to stop the development to clear a path for restoring the ranch to its former glory from 1920.  Below: There are many historical foundations that are in need of creative people. If you enjoy history (as I do) contact your local architectural and cultural heritage group.

The Art of Giving

There are non-profit foundations that need marketing and content, but do not have the funds to hire an outside creative agency. Volunteers then play a critical role.

I've discovered that volunteerism works and here's some of my examples. It isn't an exact science. I've been a volunteer judge for the American Kennel Club for more than a decade, and when I started with the AKC I figured it would last six months. Not 14 years!

However, they'll be times when volunteering does not work for you, so before you agree to donate your talents, ask the important questions regarding what's expected of you. 

Volunteerism needs to be a win-win situation for all parties concerned, and you should not have it any other way. 


Friends of Niguel-Moulton Ranch worked for 3 years to save the Last 7 Acres of historical land in south Orange County. I became the third member of the activist group.
