The Au Pair year- learning and giving

Talking about the Philadelphia NJ cluster of Go Au Pair tradition, I would like to introduce another our cluster tradition volunteering. Volunteering is a favorite meeting for many Au Pairs. Volunteering, learning and giving became our cluster tradition.Go Au Pair team volunteered in Philadelphia

Au Pair Ophelia said, “One of the best memory for my first Au Pair year is volunteering! Even though I just been here less than one year, I already volunteered four times.”

There are many ways to volunteer.  We had very many different experiences that helped the Au Pairs learn new skills and give back to the community. We volunteered  and helped the adoptive families at the Philadelphia Marathon  and helped the American Cancer Society. We also volunteered at the Flower Show, and Welcome Day Arts Festival in Newtown PA. Every event was unique and special.IMG_20131117_132533

Au Pair Monica said, “This was my first time as a volunteer, and I can say, without a doubt, that I would love to do it again because being a volunteer you can feel the real power of the good energy coming to you. See you guys in the next adventure….!! “

Au Pair event to raise funds for Walk Now Autism Speaks

Au Pairs from the Philadelphia, Bucks County and NJ cluster created a committee and a special page Au Pairs volunteering in the USA on facebook to organize and raise money for Walk Now Autism Speaks. The very first fundraising event- an Au Pair International Pot-Luck Dinner and a wrap-around event to raise funds for the walk -will be on Sunday, June 29, 2014, in Ardmore, PA. autism

The Committee planed an Auction to support the Walk Now for Autism Speaks after the International Dinner.  Au Pairs will donate some items for the Auction. Items will be wrapped or hidden in gift bags. The Au Pair Annie from Mexico will be an auctioneer and conduct the auction. The  committee hopes we raise a lot of money and have fun.

Many host families emailed that they would love to participate. The Au Pairs may ask their host families for help.

Also, one Au Pair suggested doing an Au Pair clothing market. Some Au Pairs may donate clothes and some Au Pairs  may buy them and this money will go to fundraising.

We will also wear a lovely Au Pair T-shirts and take many photos for our memories and to participate in the Go Au Pairs contest.

After the auction, Au Pairs will have something special in their bags in return for their kindness and generosity. What they will get at the auction will be like a present since their money will go to the sick kids. Many Au Pairs are leaving the cluster,  so it will be a nice memory to take with them.  Au pairs-standing-in-line

Au Pairs from other agencies or Go Au Pair clusters are welcome. Please, join the Go Au Pair team in fundraising for ”Walk Now for Autism Speaks.”
