Do you work with the elderly or a youth organization?

May all the blessings you've passed on to others be given back to you 10 times over. The world needs more people like you.

How sweet of you,thank you. Each of the things I volunteer for is in memory of a loved one. The spina bifida association is because I have it myself.

Very cool. I think anyone who takes time out of their lives to help other people should be given a commendation. Keep it up.

Way to go, my friend. A person doesn't have to devote every moment of their lives to helping others, as long as they're helping somewhere. Thanks for posting, hon.

There aren't any places to volunteer in my community. I would have to drive half an hour outside of town to find something and I don't drive.

Consider volunteering online! Many organizations need help answering emails and searching for fundraising projects. :)

I volunteer with a marine mammal rehabilitation center. I love sea lions and elephant seals (okay, and even harbor seals and bratty fur seals!). It's not for everyone, but knowing how many animals get released back into the wild because of all the volunteers makes it worth it. I also volunteer doing guinea pig rescue. I am a guinea pig foster parent and help in many other ways as well. I used to volunteer with a rabbit rescue as well, but just don't have time or that much space anymore. And before that, I volunteered as a teacher's aide in children's summer school programs. I guess I like volunteering.
