I need something to do. Not for me, but for the area. I have a good job, a nice place to live, and a strong sense of family. I'm smart, I have ambition, and I don't have children. I have to focus my attention to other facets of my life.

I want to do something to benefit the community. I could do community service, but I would only be able to help one or two days a week.

I have a hard time getting initially involved in something. I write to politicians, I've been to meetings(albeit meetings arranged by someone else, I still participated), but I find it hard to really become active regarding any one specific issue.

What do topix users do for their community? I know there are socially and politically active people visiting this forum. I would like to hear from you.
