Paint jobs are one of the dreaded labor works of many but for my brother he loves it. He said that the manipulation of the brush to suit the style you want, the picking of colors and the love that you put to your work when you’re not just doing the job for yourself but for others is truly amazing. We had this painting job for an orphanage in another town and at first we didn't knew it was an orphanage that a friend of mine built, they’re not professional painters but they knew that they can get the job done. So we called in some friends and just informed them that this is for a charity work and there’s free meal and fare money for everyone. After that were good to go since it's also a way for us to reunite with each other. We went to the place and saw that it was an orphanage and that their new building was just finished and just needed a painting job. We used nice colors that are not bad to the eyes, but are beautiful to the children's and drew butterflies and birds that really enticed the children’s imaginations. For us, that’s one of the most memorable non-profit work we’ve ever done. How about you guys? Have you done any charitable work done lately?

I volunteer at a local church once a month. Although it doesn't really sound much in terms of charity, it does offer its rewards when you see the people get fed right, even if it's just for one meal. Sometimes it's hard work when you get up to your elbows scrubbing pans, but at the end of the day, all the work seem to be worth it.

That was a wonderful thing for y'all to do. I know it gave y'all a good feeling to do it. No, i haven't done anything like that. Wish tht i could but do well to look after myself w/the problems i have medically. Congraulations to u for being such a caring person.

No I haven’t lately; in fact it has been years since I volunteered my services at a charity op shop. I enjoyed the work very much and the people were so nice. Your discussion reminds me that perhaps I should get back into it; if only I could find the time! Good on you and your friends for a great and rewarding job well done!

Yes, paint job is the easiest part of charitable work because it only involves manual work. One of my friend has found joy in doing paint works for charity. To him, it's like drawing on a large paper, he's able to express his moods during the process. WHat does not matter is how he paints, and what's important is the end result of it. He sees painting as a form of art, knowing the color combination and how many layers or whatever. I've seen him at work once, that makes me feel like joining me, but i didn't.
