Too often we under-estimate the power of touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
Volunteering brings you closer to home and community.
Leadership is based on inspiration, not domination; on cooperation, not intimidation.
Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve.
We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
I really want to look someone in the eye and know that I have helped that person.
Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.
Volunteering means reaching out to the community, helping others because you have a desire to help others.
It’s easy to make a buck. It’s a lot tougher to make a difference.
