Our team has chosen Variety and the reason why we chose them was because we each have a family member who has a disability, and we all thought that it was a great thing what they were doing for the little girl and how they are making a bike for her. After we looked into the organization we realized that a lot of their money is actually going towards the little girl and overall the money goes towards all of the ones that need a lot of help.For the most part working with a group was a great thing for me, i learned how to be more comfortable talking in front of people that i don’t normally socialize with and i feel like it took a lot of pressure off of me because i was able to be comfortable and share my ideas. And our group pretty much agrees on what each person says, and sometimes if we don’t necessarily agree we don’t just say it’s a dumb idea, we try to improve it and make it a way that can work and that we can all agree on

week 6-jermaine thull

During the first panel i learned a lot of things, not just in the organizations that we were looking at but just overall in the others too.One of the biggest things/ most important things that i took away from the discussion is that some groups were very emotional and really cared about the things and people that they help, and i just felt like that was really touching and made me think alot about who i want to be. A couple things that i learned from the fundraising is that it is very important to be polite and have great leadership skills, so that way you can talk without being nervous.

I think seeing where the money goes to is a very big part and i think it is one of the most important things to look for when donating.For the most part i am finding it quite easy now, the reason being is because i want to help children, but also i would not donate to a organization that support themselves more than the cause itself.

A couple things that our group learned about the organizations that we chose is that each group is doing a great thing for children, and we learned a lot of key details about what we needed to know and we all related to one group more than the others. In my opinion it is very important to look at the numbers before making a decision because then we can see how they are using their money, and how much is actually going into the cause.

 

Week 3 Blog- Jermaine Thull

My group came up with our purpose,vision, and mission statements this week. Our group came up with the purpose of helping children that were in need. Our vision is to raise money to help all of the children that we can. I am hoping that our group is able to contact The Boys And Girls Club, and Variety, and i am hoping that we can find out which group would be the best non-profit organization to donate to.

Week 1 Blog-JJ Thull

My experience using MAD (Make A Difference) ┬ácards was a great and tough experience for me overall. The reason why I thought is was a great experience was because I knew that we were going to to help 3 great and close to my heart causes. But the hardest part of it all was choosing only 3 causes, I would’ve liked to help a lot more but my partner and I could only choose 3 when knowing that others would like the help too. One thing that I learned about my partner Luke is that he has a good heart and he kinda has the same thought process as me.

One of the many things that I hope to gain from this program is a lot of knowledge and learning how to deal with stuff in a positive way, especially when in have a lot of responsibilities. Another thing that I want to learn is how to communicate with people better, and have a positive mindset.
