Have you ever volunteered anywhere? I like the concept especially when there are no work and people need help. What type of work do you like during the volunteering work? What do you want to do doing volunteering work? do you like it anyway or not? why?

Yes, I did once when I was schooling, I visited an old folks home. It was a great experienced. Now a days, I usually donate money as I have young kids thus could not give my time to do volunteering work; I might do it with the kid when they grow up and let them experiencing it. I am selective is giving donations. And my giving is depending on my situation at that point of time, for example, I just gotten a bonus, I might be more willing to give. Else I will empty all the small change from my pocket and donate into the collection tins. At time, I will prefer to give the money to the people directly, knowing that 100% of the money will be put to good use by the recipient. And if you donate it to a charity organization, part of the money will goes into admin cost to run the organization, in the end, probably only 70% of the money goes to the people needing it.

Yes, you are right. donating to a charity organization does not confirm all the money we donate reach to the people in need. But the people who are in need very badly and who are so far than you that you cannot know the people. In this case, donating to the charity organization is a good option. They have reach up to there and can act.

i joined volunteer jobs before. the work varied from sharing the word of God, to taking care of children, taking care of old people, to doing medical mission, giving food to the poor, etc. during these times, i don't choose what i would want to do. i prefer to move around and see everybody. i like doing this and if possible, i'd like to continue this because helping other people makes me feel so happy. i can not describe how i feel if someone will hug me or cry because of hte happiness they likewise feel. it is an immeasurable contentment when i do this. it is not a work but love for people.

I've done quite a bit of volunteering, usually as part of a larger group. My honor society in community college used to do a lot of service projects like community cleanup or serving food at shelters and such.

No. I don't want to volunteer. Once, I volunteered when I was very young. I was intimidated by the visitors and answering to their every questions, that also for no real benefit, I lost interest in volunteering. But all the best to u.
