For our “V” date we decided to VOLUNTEER. This is a great way to invest in your marriage while giving to a cause that interests both of you.
Tom and I had the privilege of VOLUNTEERING for our state elections by helping to distribute VOTER guides around the state. We loaded up and left on a Friday afternoon covering the NE part of the state.
It was a fun road trip with stops every couple of hours. We were able to meet lots of fine people who serve our state heroically and thank them for all they do.
Here are some other ideas for VOLUNTEERING:
- Soup Kitchens
- Boys/Girls Clubs
- Homeless shelters
- Disaster Relief
- Habitat for Humanity
- Humane Society
There is a website called Volunteer Match, where you can type in your city and find out what opportunities are in your area.
We also enjoy Date Night Orlando’s Do Good Date Night feature. Kristin Manieri shares:
We make it fun and easy to volunteer together by facilitating a date night activity that’s unique, fun and connective but also rewarding. Couples are having oodles of fun, laughing together, reconnecting, making me friends, and discovering new sides to each other that even decades of togetherness can’t often reveal.
Another bonus is that our volunteer experiences are commitment-free. Event attendees aren’t obliged to do orientation or commit to ongoing volunteer hours.
We’ve created a blueprint for expanding Do Good Date Night beyond its hometown of Orlando, FL, and have already facilitated events in Ohio, Indiana and Louisiana.

Why not plan to VOLUNTEER together as a couple. We had a blast giving of our time to something that matters. And we made a memory that will last.
