We have been involved in various interesting service projects that you can get involved with and make a difference in our community.
Acts of Kindness Weekends
WTB has mobilized hundreds all across metro Syracuse to participate in A-OK! Acts of Kindness on the anniversary of 9/11. A-OK! Weekend started in 2010 with a major community event involving hundreds. It continued in 2011 and since has become an annual observance, though less extensive.
We’ve done all types of service projects from painting, to park clean up to children’s events.

We held our first interfaith blood drive in 2009, and it was a great success. The slogan for the weekend was “Together We Give so that Others May Live.” “We all came together from many different traditions to save lives,” says Danya Wellman, WTB co-founder. More than 30 people signed in and the Red Cross collected 29 pints of blood. Much blood has been spilled between religious groups but this event offered blood to save lives.
Support Group Available
WTBCares, a small spiritual support group within WTB, has been renewed. The group was created in March 2007 in response to requests from WTB women going through some sort of difficulty such as illness (personal or of a friend or family member), divorce, loss of work, death of a loved one, trouble in the family, etc. It is an extremely informal group of WTB women who pray, meditate, hold in the light, and sometimes, write cards, email, or call someone who is going through a hard time.
We can be contacted through firstname.lastname@example.org. When one of us receives a request for support we ask some basic questions. Do you want to be identified or anonymous? What kind of contact would you prefer – cards, emails, phone calls, or simply to be held in the healing energy of those of us in WTBCares. We do not counsel or give advice. We do not share any information unless asked to do so, and then we get specific information about who can be notified.
If you would like to join WTBCares, please send an email to the address in the paragraph above.
