Did you do anything that makes you feel proud?

I am sure most of you have the moment of doing things that feel so proud of oneself. It could be in simple or big. In 2011, I was a part of a team that renders my professional service as a volunteer in Tajikistan. The country wasn’t popular but surely, some of you will wonder where it is. It is one of the states in Central Asia. Some people would think that volunteerism is nothing. Others think that you cannot able to earn from it. Regardless, volunteering is a miracle work. The nature of the job was so challenging and rewarding at the same time. I was so proud to be in a team and able to help people with impairments or disabilities especially children.

I've done a lot of volunteer work over the years. That's something I'm proud of. Right now I'm volunteering at a food pantry, an agricultural farm, and three libraries. I'm most proud of working at the pantry, because the patrons at the pantry don't have much. So giving healthy food to folks like them really helps them.

I joined an International NGO based in Ortigas. They provided professional volunteers to under develop countries. I am still connected to them but it is inactive status. If I wish to re-volunteer, I will just inform the organization. It is a UK-based organization.

Surely a selfless act. Good for you. I am not a hands on person...ideas are more my realm of things. So if you need brain storming I can volunteer. In my youth I did a lot of volunteer work...mostly building and supporting temples...close to 50 years or so.

Volunteering is great work and you can earn a lot from it because money isn't the only thing we can earn in this world. I volunteer at the animal shelter, donate blood regularly, set up/ran a few blood drives myself in high school, in college we do service/volunteer work all the time like yesterday was Mountain Day of service were student, professors, staff members, and community members sign up for different volunteer jobs around campus/town to do. My friends and I have cleaned up the Elk River for three years now and it feels great when you fill up multiple trash bags in just a few hours even though it is sad that there is that much trash that gets washed down the river. This weekend my friend and I are going to the animal shelter to help clean the place up, clean the animals, walk the dogs, and transport the animals for an adoption event they are holding in a town away. We also put together shoe boxes at Christmas for kids in children's homes, we collect old clothing especially coats/hoodies/gloves/socks and all other warm clothes since we live int he mountains and we get a lot of snow and cold weather and 2 annual food drives.

@Shavkat I enjoy doing it because I was fortunate to be given a pretty good life by my parents. Plus my college's motto is in the mountains for the mountains of the mountains so they are all for given back and experiencing nature and life.
