This will be Mandi's first year working with Noise for the Needy. A bit of a bleeding heart, she has been serving the nonprofit community for over a decade, most recently holding a variety of volunteer positions with Habitat for Humanity of Kitsap County and serving on a granting committee for Social Justice Fund. By day Mandi works for The Collins Group, a Seattle-based fundraising consulting firm. She holds a BA in Sociology from Western Washington University. When she manages to find a few moments away from the nonprofit world Mandi is an aspiring drummer who enjoys exploring the Pacific Northwest, traveling the world, and writing about it all on her blog - www.manditravelingpants.blogspot.com.

A couple of memorable moments for me: After the Handsome Family show in 2007, a very excited and drunk girl came up to me and told me how awesome I was onstage and how much she just loves me. She thought I was Rennie Sparks. But I’m not. Last year at Neumos, I told Dow Constantine he should get a Constantines t-shirt, because, you know, his last name is Constantine. He told me I should get a Tiffany-blue dress, because, you know, my last name is Tiffany. Word.

Volunteering for Noise for the Needy in 2009 was an amazing experience, and I’m so thankful I was given the opportunity to get involved. I had so much fun and met so many awesome people, at the end of last year’s festival I couldn’t wait to get back in the saddle and start working towards this year’s event!! The two big ingredients that made my experience with the Noise for the Needy 2009 so unforgettable were the NFTN Board members and the volunteers who gave their time and energy freely. The festival wouldn’t have happened without all of you!!
I realized at the end of last year’s festival that volunteering is one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. It’s an incredible feeling to know that you are working towards making positive changes in people’s lives!! And when there is music involved, that just makes it better! And there is no better organization that I’ve found than Noise for the Needy. They’ve got their hearts in the right place, and they have the energy and drive to make this amazing festival happen year after year. I am blessed to be a part of this awesome team.
