Picture of me

Hi! My name is Danielle-Asleigh Rushton and I am a Junior at the University of Florida. I chose to do my "how to" on how each of us can create a change in the world by volunteering. Volunteering has been a huge part of my life since I can remember. As a child my father and grandmother would take my brother and I to soup kitchens during the holidays to help feed those less fortunate. Throughout middle and high school I have volunteered at so many places ranging from beach environmental clean up, animal shelters, toy drives and retirement homes. Now I find myself short on extra time, and can not volunteer as much as I would like to, but I still find time during the holidays to bring a smile and joy to someone else’s life. Volunteering has a way of tugging at your heart strings and making you realize just how blessed we all really are. I so often see people around me forget how important it is to help those around us who are less fortunate. Helping others means so much to me, and their is no better feeling then to know you have made a difference in someone's life. Remember we all have the potential to be the change we wish to see in the world. ♥
