decisions, decisions

There are currently 562 [link="http://www.volunteermatch.org"]volunteer opportunities[/link] within 5 miles of my zip code.

Maybe I should start out with something easy like:

"Popcorn maker for movie days at homeless shelter"
or
"Pub Crawl Tour Leader" (?!!!)

Although I was thinking more along the lines of:

"STOP BAY AREA KIDS FROM GOING TO PRISON!"

That sounds like a good use of time. Especially considering a gang of potential lawbreakers is even now whooping it up at the playground next to my building. (No offense, kids.)

Although, some of these other options are just so intriguing, like:

"Shamefree Blogger in San Francisco" (I'm shamefree all right, but not for lack of trying).

"Volunteer Victim for Advanced Medical Life Support Class" (Get felt-up by a stranger for charity).

But mostly I'm leaning towards a rash of postings for the Neighborhood Parks Council's new online Park Kiosk, including:

"Building a Flickr Presence on our New (DRUPAL) Web Site"
"GIS-KML-Google Earth Pro Volunteer"
"Photo-Journalism/Social Documentation"

Maybe I'll do one "fun" thing and one "socially responsible" thing. Since the juvenile delinquents of tomorrow are already at the neighborhood park, that could work out.
