I’ve never been a big philanthropist. Horrible as it sounds, my past experiences with volunteering have been scattered, infrequent, and unsatisfying.
Two months ago, I decided to change that. Where would I have fun volunteering and dedicating time to each week? I decided upon office work at Team in Training. I did a race with them three years ago while raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and I was impressed with the organization.
My experiences with TNT have been amazing! I’m in a great atmosphere full of wonderful people, and they are so grateful for my two hours a week. I loved it so much, I added two hours a week to the San Diego Art Museum in the store stockroom. Here I even found a Survivor (the show) buddy.
Try thinking of places you’d love to work or be a part of and see what you can do to volunteer. Even if it’s just once a month, volunteering is completely worth it. Trust me, you’ll embody happiness through helping others!
