Volunteering Service: An opportunity for yourself

Most of us say we want to help our community in one way or another, but the question is, have we done it so far? I bet you that some of you might not, most of us have the intention, but not all of us really do something about it. It is known that volunteering service is good for the person itself doing the service, and for the people for whom the service is being made. It is a both sides beneficial activity. I was involved in some volunteering service, just because I wanted to help. I did get involved in an organization named "Dibujando Sonrisas" or in english "Drawing Smiles" they help low resources children with food, toys, and company twice a year, on Christmas and on Dia del Nino. It was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in a while. Just the simple fact of getting to know some of the children and literally drawing a smile in their faces by just having some fun with them, or talking to them made me my day. And this is just to mention an example of many. Volunteering Service is not an obligation, is just an opportunity to help other people by giving something about you, wheter is your experience in some field, or your love and will to do the right thing. I definitely encourage you to do some volunteering service, the feeling you will have after you done it is undescribable in a positive way. If you have experienced this before, I'm sure you are getting my point. But if you don't, what are you waiting for? I do know what it feels like, do you?
