Reasons why you should volunteer

Last year I decided I will become Red cross volunteer,that was something I've planed for really long time.
One reason why I never done it is because I'm really shy,I just couldn't live like that.
After few months of volunteering I realised I became better person.
Red cross made me realize how good I feel when I'm doing good. Instead of sitting on my couch watching TV or reading, as I often find myself doing on the weekends, I was making a difference.
When You Do Good, You'll Feel...  

... inspired. Being around other people who are spending their time doing something good for the world is truly one of the most inspiring things.Doing something good for a good cause is one of the most inspiring things. You will realize that there are many other people out there in the world that want to make it a better place. 

... grateful. When you're in a situation where you're donating your time to a cause, it's probably because something or someone needs help. No matter what is the cause, if you are aware of what your work is benefiting, you will most likely feel incredibly grateful for all of the goodness in your own life.

... useful. Being a part of red cross I felt like I was doing something good with my life. I had a purpose,I did something to help someone.Feeling as if our lives have purpose is one of the wonderful impacts of being involved in a meaningful volunteer opportunity, and it's not something to be taken lightly.

... connected. For the first time in my life, I was with a group of people who are just like me.To be in a room full of people who feel as passionately about helping people as I do was truly a wonderful feeling. Whatever cause you choose to support, it's such a great feeling to be around other people who support the cause that you feel strongly about. Feeling connected to complete strangers is a rare occurrence and something to be enjoyed. 

... hopeful. When working with a group of people who are inspired and motivated by a single cause, you almost can't help but be hopeful. Though it might seem like you're only impacting a small corner of the world when you're working on one event for one cause, you'll find yourself filled with hope because you know that all over the world -- in all of the other little corners -- there are other people doing good things to make something -- maybe just one thing -- a little better. 

Volunteering for Red cross has motivated me to want to help in other ways. It's inspired me to want to become even more involved in making a difference. If you're thinking about volunteering or donating to cause that means something to you, I'd highly recommend it. Believe me, I know how easy it is to say you don't have time or you don't know what you'd be able to help with, but trust me -- there is something you can do. Remember: it only takes one person to make a difference.
