Volunteering in India

Less than a month left now until I leave for India! 

I cannot wait - I'm <<<<<<THIS>>>>>> excited and nervous to go to Mysore and volunteer.  You can follow the volunteer work I'll be doing at Odanadi here prior to and during my time there.

The picture below is of Marine Drive in Mumbai. Geographically it is not close to Mysore, but it's one of my most favorite places period. I just had to share this photo! You have to definitely experience it for yourself :)

I had also written a short piece on why I am volunteering and what inspired me to go forward with this.  You can read about it on the newly launched Odanadi US web-site under the 'stories' tab. 

Finally, if you tweet I encourage you to use #terpsodanadi at the end to help bring more visibility to my trip, Odanadi and the issue of human trafficking.  You can follow me on Twitter and feel free to tweet the volunteer blog!

Positive energy to start my blog :)

"It's never too late to be what you could have been. Do what you've been afraid of. If you fall, get up. If they say you can't, show them you can. Make mistakes, learn, grow. Love freely & deeply, forgive kindly & give second chances to those who deserve them. Be good to yourself & respect others. Let your passion fuel ...your journey. We only have this life, so make it count!" - Me, 10/11/2010
