Babysitting Needed? My name is Laura Walton and I am a rising senior at Appalachian State University studying Public Relations and Studio Art. I am looking for nanny/babysitting jobs for the summer in D.C. or the surrounding area. I am a cheerful, dedicated, and highly organized individual who absolutely loves children! I have had over 10 years of childcare experience and worked as a nanny for two children in Cary, N.C. this past summer. I love music (especially classical), although I don’t play any instruments. I love doing arts and crafts, playing or walking out of doors, going on adventures, and reading. I am comfortable caring for children from 6 months to 12 + years. I am comfortable with pets (the last family I cared for had two cats) and am willing to do laundry, light housekeeping, run errands, and make meals. I have my own car and an excellent driving record. I can provide references upon request.I am available Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and on the weekends and evenings. Email me at this link.
Housing Needed Elena Serna-Wallender writes: My internship starts on Tuesday, May 28th and goes until Friday, August 9th. I’d like to get settled in a day or two before my start date, and leave on the weekend of August 11th. I’m able to pay a max of about $1,000 per month, and I’ll need to be within semi-easy access to public transit to get downtown. I’d love to be connected with anyone who might have some space!

Close Guantanamo Rally During the past months, Guantanamo detainees have gone on a hunger strike to protest conditions and the detention center’s continued existence. Dozens of the 166 prisoners at Guantanamo continue to be held despite having been cleared for release. Here’s what you can do: The Close Guantanamo Rally is this Friday, May 17, 2013 from noon to 1 p.m. at Pennsylvania Ave NW, by Lafayette Park (located just north of the White House). You can also:
- Write to President Obama and the Congress and tell them again that they need to close Guantanamo now.
- Participate in the Witness Against Torture fast and vigils – click here for more information.
Court Appointed Special Advocates — CASA—DC (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a really important and worthy organization that always needs support. This is where I volunteered (2007-2011) and also worked part time as staff in 2009. Volunteers are trained to represent foster care children in family court and to mentor and assist them outside of court–to make sure they are cared for properly…education, health, hygiene, etc. I often lift up Lyashaw in prayer—I represented her until she aged out of the system at 21. We are still in touch and that has been a very special relationship. Also, if you are thinking of volunteering somewhere in 2013, I highly recommend CASA (www.casadc.org)! Many blessings, Sally
