One of my goals for the new year is to find a charity I can become involved with, and volunteer my time. I want to do this both to contribute to my community, and also to network and meet people who may have things in commom with me. I was wondering if there was a good allergy-related charity I could volunteer with. I used to be a journalist so I could help with editing, marketing, PR, fund-raising and things like that. I am also currently a teacher and am very interested in the managing of allergies in schools. I don't know if anyoen does presentations to schools or anything like that, but that is something I would be interested in. Does anyone know what groups would be good, both in terms of having something for me to do, and being reasonably large re. meeting my goal of building a network and meeting new people?

What city do you live in? We have a Speaker Bureau here in Ottawa and I know that there is also one in Toronto. This is in collaboration with Anaphylaxis Canada. The speakers are trained to go out and give lectures about allergies and anaphylaxis.

You can go to the Allergy/Asthma Information Association website, they have a page on volunteering:

You can volunteer at a local support group or, if there isn't one, start one. :)
