Happy Fall Y’all!
Is it just me, or are the months flying by? We’re already nearing the end of October! Autumn is upon us -- and has been for a while now, and my backyard is overflowing with leaves ...ugh!
I’m sure some of you are experiencing the same pile-up… which means you could probably use a hand to help “pile up” those leaves.
Ok, maybe I’m not the best at puns, but seriously, helping each other conquer those overwhelming tasks is exactly what Handlender is all about. So, whaddya waitin’ for? Go submit a request!
You know what else is pretty neat? The fact that people have been asking me, “Does anyone else need help?” We have Handlender members who are literally waiting to help with your requests. So don’t be afraid to say you need a hand!
Did you know?
You don’t have to be an expert to lend a hand. At registration, some of you may have thought, “I’m not skilled at any of these things on this list!” Well, it might help to know that you don’t need to be a professional or an expert ---just capable and willing! Between organizing, cleaning, prayer, or even exercising - you’ve got something you can offer to someone else in need!
We’ve added new skills/services to our list. Some of our members’ requests have prompted us to add more skills and services to our original list. A couple new things we’ve added are “prayer” and “mentoring.” Contact us if you’d like your profile to be updated with either of these skills.
Website UpdatesWe’re excited to announce that we’ve officially begun website construction with actual developers! Within the coming weeks, you’ll be able to go to our website and check out our progress! You’ll find our monthly newsletters, give-away item inventory, a smoother registration process and more! Oh, and did I mention we’re excited?!
Lastly, we’d still like for you to send in photos of those items you’d like to give away to your community so we can get them loaded on the site. You can send photos (in good lighting) to email@example.com and we’ll add them to our collection.
‘Til Next TimeThat’s all for this month’s newsletter! Keep your eyes peeled for the next one so you’ll always be up to date with what’s going on. If there’s something specific you’d like to know regarding Handlender, send us an email and we’ll include it in a future newsletter!
As always, thank you for supporting and/or being a part of the Handlender network!
