I Make the Time
Julie Cole, like most professional working moms is a busy woman. Her day-to-day is a delicate homelife-work balance as she’s not only the co-founder of Hamilton- based business, Mabel’s Labels, she’s also a parenting blogger, a regular conference speaker, TV contributor and a mom of six who is often traveling for work. It’s no secret, she is busy.
However, being actively involved in her community and giving back is important to Julie. She has volunteered with United Way in various leadership capacities over the past couple of years and has utilized her various platforms to encourage others to contribute their time, talent and financial supports as well.
Quite simply, Julie makes the time; she finds the time because she knows the work of United Way is vital to those who need it most in our community. Between school drop-offs, tying up skates, getting kids to music lessons and doing the job that makes her able to pay for all this, Julie believes that volunteerism is something that needs to be built into our lives. “We’ve all heard the old adage: if you want to get something done, ask a busy person to do it,” she jokes, adding “I give because I can. I give because we need long tables and no fences.”
We hope you will join Julie and the many dedicated volunteers and donors alike at our table.
