Talk on volunteerism
I've been working on a talk about volunteerism and the Society that I'll be giving on Thursday and also next week. Instead of painting a very rah-rah picture of volunteering, I think I'm going to be very straight about it because at the end of the day, volunteerism isn't about making you feel good. If that's your sole aim of volunteering, then picking up a hobby probably will be a better idea. However, it doesn't mean that volunteering does not give you anything back, but the idea is that volunteering is not about YOU. It's about helping someone or in the case of caregivers, some cats :)
The satisfaction is in knowing that you made a difference and that you tried your best to leave the world a slightly better place.
