Hello! I’m Rachel, and this is my personal blog. It is focused on helping nonprofits get involvement and helping busy people get involved.

I write about web tips and design, volunteer opportunities, and stories of inspiration. My goal is to encourage everyone to get involved with causes they feel passionately about and, in the process, improve the way nonprofits operate. In addition, I offer design services to nonprofits and personal bloggers at no profit to me. Profits generated from working with businesses is used to support this volunteer work.

When I’m not at my computer blogging, I’m at my computer studying my life away as a first year law student. Eventually, I would like to work in the public interest law sector. I no longer want my passion for community service to be limited to extra-curricular activities; I want it to be my career.

I typically post three to four times a month. To make sure you don’t miss my newest posts, you can subscribe via RSS or follow along with BlogLovin. I also regularly update my Twitter and Facebook pages. Feel free to contact me with guest post articles, advertising inquiries, or design services requests.

This my personal blog. The opinions that I express here do not necessarily represent those of my employer and/or educational institution. The information I provide is on an as-is basis. I make no representations as to accuracy, completeness, current-ness, suitability, or validity of any information on this blog and will not be liable for any errors, omissions, or delays in this information or any losses, injuries, or damages arising from its use.


My blog is hosted on WordPress.com. The underlying theme/template is Twenty Eleven. I get most of the photos I use for my blog posts from personal images or Google Images, and I try my very best to give credit where credit is due.

While I have had the opportunity to upgrade to a self-hosted blog with premium themes, I chose to continue using a free WordPress.com blog to show nonprofits what can be accomplished on a budget.
