It was a busy weekend! Great falls clean up effort, arts and crafts with seniors, and a meeting with one of our sponsors, Mani Oshani, who made a donation to purchase many bouquets of flowers for women of domestic violence!

I took a hike today with a couple great friends. It was quite the journey. What we originally expected to be a 5 mile hike turned into a 13+ miles! But it was totally worth it especially when we got to the top and could see miles in the distance and birds flying below us.
Life is a journey, and you can take some wrong turns here and there, but if you stay the course, take it one step at a time, work hard, and help out others along the way you'll get t...

A special shout-out to Michele and Anthony Botte, my all-star volunteering couple! Michele and Anthony made a new year's resolution to help give back to those less fortunate and make a positive difference in the community.

One of my favorite things about running the Barbera Foundation is the ability to meet many amazing people in our community. Our volunteers are very compassionate people and are super friendly and accepting. I couldn't ask for a better group!
I wanted to extend an invite to all volunteers new and old to come out on 4/11 for Happy Hour at Passion Fish in Reston Town Center.
It will be a great way for everyone to network and meet other like-minded philanth...
Today, we had our second sock drive to support the homeless in Washington, DC and Fairfax County. Socks are the least donated item, but also the most needed among the homeless! They play an integral role in preventing hypothermia during the cold months and for maintaining general cleanliness/hygiene and health all year round.
We managed to raise over 2 SUV loads of socks in addition to over $300 in donations to purchase new socks!
Special thanks to Maryam Ovissi of Beloved Yoga & Wellness, Inc. for hosting a yoga class tonight to help us raise socks for the homeless. It was a great class, with amazing & uplifting people! I am definitely looking forward to working with Beloved Yoga in the future on some of our upcoming charitable initiatives.
Want to get a great yoga workout in, and practice mindfulness/meditation? Give Beloved Yoga a try! I'll go with you if you want!
