Hi everyone! some of you may know me from my other blog, Boxed Whine. Boxed whine started out as an off the derech blog. Off the derech meaning having left orthodox Judaism. I eventually turned it into a blog about my life, kvetching nearly every day. I now get between 1,000 to 2,000 readers a month. Not shabby at all for a blog I expected no one to read.

I am not working right now and I got really lonely, so i started to volunteer. There are places and events to volunteer at all over DC. I started this kick 2 years ago by being the face painting girl for the DC rollergirls. I also occasionally volunteered at Washington Animal Rescue League, I don't volunteer there much because it is so far from my home. I joined DC Rocky Horror last month as crew. Last month I did SilverDocs at the AFI and now my ass belongs to Capital Fringe Festival for the next 2 weeks. I also go through Craigslist and find one day events to volunteer for.

Why the name "I do it for the tee shirts" ? Because no matter how different each event is from each other, they all have a common thread- The volunteer tee shirt. These tee shirts make me feel like an awesome insider, like a cool kid, like i am in the know...which i am.

So sit tight as I volunteer my way clear across DC doing ticket sales, gardening and everything in between. First stop? Capital Fringe Festival 2011.
