Canvass For A Cause provided me with one of the most rewarding and unforgettable volunteer opportunities of my life. Every single member of the staff is friendly and has a passion for his or her job. Started by a group of experienced people and now blossoming into a well known organization, every member of the team is helpful and welcoming. Getting to speak with all different types of people around San Diego helped me realize my passions and how rewarding it is to volunteer with this group. Knowing that with one face to face conversation I reached at least five other people made all of the negative feedback worth it. Working with such a great group of people and a truly unique organization was more than I could have asked for and I would recommend it to any and all with an interest.

Ive always been very, very skeptical about giving money to anyone to fix a problem. Ive always felt that if an issue\problem is important enough for me to sincerely care about, I need to do more to get involved than throwing money at the problem until it goes away. In short I didn't see how me giving them money was any different from anyone else, and how it was going to dramatically address the issue. At this point, I had been approached by numerous, almost incalculable amounts of people (In the Streets, T.V commercials, Web,etc..) wanting money to fix problems, and in digging I've always found that I wasn't going to completely satisfied with the return on my investment.... Until I came across Canvass for a Cause. What makes them different? They're asking for money just like everyone else. Sure, its unrealistic to expect a Grass Roots Non-Profit to be successful solely running on hopes and dreams. Faith will only fill the gas tank so many times. What sets them apart is how the money's used. What makes them so effective is their model, the model of engagement. Being proactive is the only way to resolve existing issues, and preventing future ones. I was truly happy to see a group of people who were not looking for the easy way out in a hard fight. Its easy to see why they are so effective, they are willing to do the hard work of being out in the field, having those face to face conversations, when no one appears to want to, and that's when the WIN happens.

I find myself continually engaging people about what our issues are, and whats the best way to fix them. And I always run into the issue of Corporatocracy. I've seen what people power, can do versus monetary power. I'm extremely excited to stand with them

I would broaden the cast of their net for bringing in supporters. That's about all I can suggest. The best thing I can do is get involved. We are the ones we have been waiting on to safe us, the time to get involved is now!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing the change happen. People Rights have always been an issue. The civil rights movement never stopped, it just got distracted. When in school learning about the Civil rights movement of the 60's, I always dreamed of what I would do. Now I can!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

people that all cared more about making a change, then the change in their pocket.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Open a chapter in every major city, in every state. Work with existing people right groups, and provide an opportunity for people to get involved (with measurable success) an outlet who may not of had one.

Ways to make it better...

I got involved sooner. ;)

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

It's people, everyone, US! As with a lot of things, sometimes our biggest strength can be our greatest weakness. The model is perfect, we as people just need to step up to do the hard work.

One thing I'd also say is that...

We have the opportunity to live out every fantasy we've ever had, and experience every emotion possible. Lets do something with the opportunity in-front of us now, don't waste it, living vicariously watching other people live. Live for more than money.

I volunteer a few hours a week updating their membership list. They are a dedicated group who spend hours in the sun informing people and correcting misinformation about gay marriage and other issues on their slate. They are courageous and often have to put up with a lot of negative, harsh feedback. I first met two of them in from of Walmart and began asking if they were aware of the religious misinformation behind Prop 8. I saw that they needed some help and offered to do what I could. For many of them this is their day job and they need contributions to be able to continue. This is an organization worth contributing to as well as volunteering for.
