I became a Boy Scout Leader 4 years ago by accident. To see the boys grow up into good young men is a reward I could never have imagined. I look to this site often for inspiration to pass along. Unconditional giving is what we are all called to do.

I've been doing a LOT of Volunteering lately(with young children, teens, adults, ect.) at a Museum, and when the kids' face lights up when you make a doll out of corn husks, or make a cobbler on the open fire, It's priceless!!!

I love this foundation. There was a day when I donated one pint of my blood voluntarily to health workers for their hospital patients who need blood.
Ikeazor Anieto, Lagos,Nigeria

Sometimes we get information, sometime we don't; Sometime we do right things rightly, sometime we don't;Sometime we travel far, sometime we dwell dormant. No matter how many of those are SOMETIMES; How many times do we do what we do for MANKIND? If you have never thought of living for people, then you better start now before it is too late. This is what other people call Volunteering.
Chavala, F., Dar-es-salaam,Tanzania

What a great idea. I was just praying for something, and I saw your commercial. How can I help?
