Get a Little, Give a Little

After rompin' around in Westwood, Los Angeles as my personal playground for the past 4 years, it was time to help out a bit around the joint... 

Today was the first annual WOMP- Westwood Organized Mega Project organized by the Westwood Community Council and the UCLA volunteer center.  There were all sorts of projects groups did up and down the streets of this perky college city. So many local businesses donated to the Project, everything from Urban Outfitter designed t-shirts to delicioso lunch from Napa Valley Grill (and free sangria cards for later.... mmm)  As part of group 5A (woop!), I sanded down, primed, and painted these lamp posts a lovely new shade of bright blue which adorn one of the most popular streets in our little home away from home. 

I met a lot of people who are involved with the UCLA volunteer center, Habitat for Humanity, and other great service organizations- such inspiring bright faces, so eager to help others with willing arms and hearts.  I wanna do more of the good stuff hmmmmmm
