“Volunteers are paid in six figures… S-M-I-L-E-S.”
— Gayla LeMaire
During times of economic recession. when we’re focused on getting and keeping as much as we can, it’s important to remember one important thing about volunteering.
It’s a free way to build a resume, a free way to network, a free way to meet people, a free way to give back, a free way to change your attitude, and a free way to start looking at the world in a new way.
Plus, for every moment you’re volunteering, you are not spending money.
That’s a pretty good bargain.
Yesterday’s gift of time … Volunteer line judge at my twin daughters’ volleyball game … Dishes … Also, not free, but brought one of my daughters a surprise hamburger to her school for lunch.
