The great thing about the committees are that there are numerous ways for you to help out, and you can pick and choose what works best for you. You are also not stuck with one committee. You can join as many as you wish! Joining a committee and helping out even just a little still makes a huge difference and all of us who head up the committees really appreciate every little bit.
The Hospitality Committee has several ways you can help out, by as much or as little as you can offer. Committee members of Hospitality help welcome new members in the Introduction forum, sign up to wish Happy Birthday to members, all of which takes mere moments to accomplish each month. Perfect for those who are unsure of how much they can commit to. Within the hospitality committee there are also sub branches: the Secret Fairy Committee and the Stork Committee.
The Secret Fairy Committee work together to bring news of members who are having a rough time, offer to create a little goodie bag, and with the Fairys help, deliver it anonymously to bring cheer to the member in need. It doesn't take much time, you stay within your area so you don't have to worry about driving all over, and it really makes the recipients smile and realize they are not alone even when they are down.
The Stork Committee are members who offer to sign up and deliver one meal to one mom who has recently had a baby or adopted. We all know how hard it can be to do even the simplest of things when a new baby joins the family, let alone cooking a hardy meal. The Stork Committee members offer to help that transition period and it is much appreciated by fellow members.
If Hospitality sounds like it may be something you are willing to help out in here and there, please PM Suzanne (srl1010) or Kelli (KRCollin) for more information. For the Secret Fairy Committee specifically, please PM Suzanne. If you are interested specifically in the Stork Committee, please PM Kelli.
This important Committee helps to come up with ideas on how to bring in funds to help run our site and pay for our big group wide events. In this committee members are asked to share ideas, promote those ideas through use of their signature, and sign up a couple times a year for a quick volunteer shift when needed.
If Fundraising sounds like it may be something you are willing to help out in here and there, please PM Tanisha (locnlovely) or Jenni (jennimc1975) for more information.
Promotions is where we get the word out about TM to the outside world but it also helps promote what is going on within TM itself. You can volunteer to do as little as sign up to post 3 QOTDs in the Mommy Forum each month, or use a signature to help promote an upcoming event. If you like to write, you can join our blog team, which takes as little or as much time as you wish. The blog team is where you can post your blogs on out TM blog (like here!).
If Promotions sounds like it may be something you are willing to help out in here and there, please PM Brittany (Rhaven) for more information.
