A volunteer's reward

If you have ever considered doing some volunteer work you might want to take a look at Volunteering Unplugged. Seek Volunteer kindly asked me to write a blog post for their newly launched site. From my Volunteering Unplugged blog post:

“If you feel like you would like to do something to make a difference – just take the first step. Set aside some time. And let people know what you want to do. One of the best rewards for volunteering apart from the end result, is the community you meet. You never know how things will turn out, because there are many wonderful people who will join with you along the way.”….read more from this post along with stories from other volunteers such as Life in Mono , Firebug Theme , Miss McMuffin , Autumn Leaves , Blogpost.com , Sheila’s Wonderings , The life of an Audit Diva , Adspace-Pioneers , Servant of Chaos , Corporate Engagement , Consumer Psychologist , and Imaginif

A little while after I submitted my blog post for Volunteering Unplugged I was ecstatic to discover that Seek Volunteer together with Naked Communication made a generous donation of $500  towards my $10,000 fundraiser for a Filipino Trust Group project against poverty.What a wonderful surprise  – thank you!

Do you volunteer? What makes it a rewarding experience for you?
