Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity where an individual or group provides services for no financial gain.  Volunteering is also renowned for skill development and is often intended to promote goodness or to improve human quality of life.  Volunteering may have positive benefits for the volunteers as well as for the person or community served.

I carry masks with me when I am out.  I saw a homeless man sitting on the curb in a parking lot.  I gave him a baggie with 2 masks and some hand sanitizer.  He started to cry and said he has been unable to enter any building for several days because he did not have a mask.  A small gift from me, life changing for him.  Be a volunteer and change someone’s life.


Do Something, Something Happens

Do Nothing, Nothing Happens
