Why is it important to volunteer?
The times we live in today, there is no shortage of worthwhile causes that individuals like you and me can support. We can support the people in need directly and also support the wider community.
More importantly, the charities and foundations that you see all the time, or never, they almost always rely on the generosity of volunteers because they do not have enough funding to pay the salaries of their employees. They cannot get outside help and pay for that as well. In most cases, they are partly funded by the government and local councils.
Okay I’m interested. Are there any benefits to volunteering?
Of course. The benefits vary depending on the organization you are volunteering for. They range from being able to teach English to kids in a third world country, or as simple as picking up the litter from your local beach. The benefits depend on whether you want to support your local community or if you want to have a wider affect on the overall population.
Some people like being able to just wake up one weekend and go to the beach and pick up the litter to make sure that their beaches are clean. They might not have a lot of time to donate to the causes they want.
Others might have a lot of time and they can fly out to a third world country and teach a bunch of kids English and change their lives.
It all depends on how much time you have available and how much of a difference you can make in the world.
Volunteering also builds your self-esteem and self-confidence
We all have an innate feeling of wanting to do good for others. And if we can do that, we get a sense of accomplishment. Volunteering helps you do that.
Almost every person out there wants to live in a better world. And they want the same thing for their kids too.
By volunteering, you get to feel better not only about yourself, but you also know that you have done something to enable change. It gives you a positive outlook on life. And you can take that positivity with you to your daily routine. Whether that is your job or business. It will shine through your future goals and the things you have planned out.
You’ll notice that you have more energy to do what you like doing. Whether that is increasing the revenue of your business, or more traveling.
