On March 25, 2012, my job will be to live, discover, & connect inside one of the U.S. states for a year. And to help you understand a little bit more about the nature of this adventure, I’ll be spending this week “Showcase Showdown-ing” the verbs I’m trying to embody.

The third action is “to connect”.

This is the heartbeat behind what I do. I simply love promoting great causes, people, and organizations. I get some crazy, whacked out joy when jumping in to volunteer -- it simply feels good to do good to others.

Some of the ways this will be seen throughout the year is by highlighting local charities via the weekly blog or video, organizing a community project, donating proceeds to charities from items sold, and encouraging people to try volun-touring (spending some vacation time volunteering). I have a hunch that these venues are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to living out the verb “connect” and I can’t wait to get started.

If you followed any part of the 48 by 48 adventure, you’ll know this was one of the three loves that compelled me to travel the states for a year doing volunteer, service, and charity work. I hope to continue this form of philanthropy, not by driving 43,500 miles across the country, but by focusing my energies in on one region.

I hope you’ll be as excited to join me in this journey as you were in the past.

Who/what/where do you feel most connected to in life? Do you wish you were more connected to something else?
