Quote of the Week: Love Volunteering

| July 5, 2010
“Consciously or unconsciously, every one of us does render some service or another. If we cultivate the habit of doing this service deliberately, our desire for service will grow steadily stronger, and it will make not only for our own happiness, but that of the world at-large.” -Ghandi
Yesterday, as I sat watching the fireworks display, courtesy of I Love America, I could not help but think about how seriously awesome our country is.
And probably the greatest thing about our country is its people. Its selfless, compassionate people. Did you know that last year, across the country, 63.4 million Americans volunteered to help their communities? Yep, that information is courtesy of The Corporation for National and Community Service, which published a briefing report on the topic over at Volunteering in America. (On a sidenote: Missouri didnt do too bad, raning 26th…but I vote we push to raise it this year!)
This then got me thinking to why people love volunteering so much. I could not formulate my own eloquent way of putting it, but I think this contributor to Everyday Giving put it best in the article, 5 Reasons I Love to Volunteer. 
This 5th of July, after celebrating our GREAT country with family, fun, and fireworks, I encourage all of you to give back to the community around you. There are endless ways you can give back:
Give your Thanks
Give your Help
Give your Encouragement
Give your Enthusiasm
Give your Time
Give your Ideas
Give your Spirituality
Give your Wealth
But above all, give Yourself.
