Help me plan Project Advent II


During Advent 2011, I did a project for the blog that ended up being one of the most rewarding, and also most widely read, things that I've ever done.  Project Advent followed a simple formula:
1 Hour of Service per Day
x 24 Days of Advent
1 Day of Service by Christmas

I'm planning to do it again this year.  Same setup as before, either an hour of service each day or a donation of one hour's pay to a charitable organization.  Just like last year, I'm not putting any other rules on it, because I want to see where it takes me again.  I'll be visiting a couple of the same places that I visited last year, and there will be a few places that I'll visit more than once during the month, but I'm trying to keep from scheduling too many repeats.

That's where I could really use your help.  Actually, there are two ways that you can help.
  1. Last year, when I asked for ideas about places to volunteer, lots of my friends came forward with good suggestions.  If you have an idea for a place that I could do some volunteering this December, I'd love to hear it!
  2. This will be even more help - if you do any kind of work with an organization that needs volunteers, and you can help me get in touch with the right people to set up some volunteer time, I would be really appreciative.  There were several places that I wanted to try and work with last year, but I wasn't able to because they needed a background check in advance, and I didn't have time to set that up with them before I wanted to visit.  This year I want to be sure not to miss any opportunities because of things like that.
OK, let me have it!  I've got some ideas and organizations that I'm already working on, but I want you to be a part of this project with me by giving me your ideas, and connecting me with your organizations!
