Being a volunteer simply means to be a motivated person who invests his/her time and energy to work towards a project or cause he/she feels passionate about .

Volunteering means spending some of your free time helping others. You may volunteer to help other people, such as families who lost their homes after a natural disaster, but you can also volunteer to protect animals, the environment, or any other cause that you care about.

Help Yourself by Helping Others: volunteering helps others, but it can also help you. If you are passionate about something that has happened — like a natural disaster — doing something about it can be a great way to cope with your feelings.

Volunteering also lets you see your own life in new ways. Sometimes it is easy to worry about stuff like grades or to get annoyed because you do not have the most expensive trainers or the newest computer game. Volunteering lets you spend some time focusing on others for a while.

Lots of people find that they really enjoy volunteering. Volunteer experiences often put you in a different environment and expose you to people and situations that you wouldn’t have come across in your regular life.

Volunteering and seeing the conditions of life for people in other countries can often change your life drastically and spark new decisions and directions. It is very rewarding to be able to meet other people’s needs. You will know that, thanks to you, some children have warm coats, hats, mittens, and boots. So whether it’s winter clothes, food for the hungry, or homes for unwanted pets, doing volunteer work means one very important thing: you make a difference in the world.

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop
