A good weekend

one of the highlights was volunteering to take donations for the tsunami appeal concert on sat night

Apart from the numerous requests to speak to someone famous

every call was great

it was extremely busy

and my hand felt like it would fall off (especially after already working previously in the day)

many of the callers were kids some aged as young as 7 donating their xmas money and/or pocket money

older adults who apologised for donating so little

many who were donating for a second time

and an aussie women calling from Thailand who made changes to her plans at the right time and fortunately wasn't one of phukets many victims

i left early and at 9.30pm only 3 hours after it started our call centre (one of about 6 participating) with only a couple of hundred volunteers has reached the million dollar mark
