june volunteer opportunities

dog volunteer events in san diego | june 2012 Happy Thursday, everyone! We have some news about volunteer opportunities in San Diego:

The monthly adoption events we post are organized by the Dog Lovers Ministry of the Rock Church. (BTW // We're not in charge of anything - we just try to help spread the word.) Starting in June, the Ministry is teaming up with a local group called Second Chance Dog Rescue. Unlike SNAP, this group requires that volunteers participate in training before working with the animals.

Below, you'll find the training schedule for June. (If you can't make it this month, they will have training the same time every month (the 1st and 3rd Saturday).)

Training Session 1 // for new volunteers When: Saturday, June 2nd - 1:30-3:30pm Where: Petco Sports Arena, 3595 Sports Arena Blvd.

Training Session 2 // for new volunteers When: Saturday, June 16th - 1:30-3:30pm Where: Petco Sports Arena, 3595 Sports Arena Blvd.

If you're interested in becoming a volunteer, please fill out the form below and your information will be forwarded to the Ministry. There are a limited number of spots available for each event, so please do not show up to volunteer without confirmation from someone at the Ministry. Thanks!

These volunteer opportunities are brought to you by the Dog Lovers Ministry and SNAP San Diego.

love your city.

Love Your City [pinit]

If I ever have a pen and paper in hand, I can't help but doodle. I don't know why. Most of the time I just practice re-writing what is already on the page in different fonts. Script. Serif. Sans serif. Big type. Tiny type.

I don't doodle because I'm a master at drawing. Haaardly. I doodle because my brain seems to be unable to shut itself off when it comes to creating, visualizing, and perfecting things. Think of it as ADD meets OCD. This is why I LOVE designing (logos, especially). Give me a logo project and it will be all I think about all day. In the car. On the phone. In bed. While I'm watching tv. I'll continue brainstorming and sketching until that glorious moment arrives...when I exhale in relief and say "That's IT."

The mark up top originated from a doodle I made this morning during church. (Yes, I was paying attention.) I didn't hem and haw over it like I do with client projects - I just made it for fun. I was inspired by the new series in church and I decided to make it more official.

What does it mean? It means exactly what it says: LOVE YOUR CITY. Take care of it. VOLUNTEER. Do something. (To learn more about the message of Pervasive Hope, click on the image.)

Regardless of whether not it's of your taste, [good] design makes simple messages MEMORABLE. It communicates the big picture as quickly as possible, in as few strokes as possible. So feel free to pin, share, or download my little graphic to encourage your city to take part.
