Word for the Day
I use to look upon this idea of volunteering as an action to assist someone or something for the greater good. An action with NO strings attached. The recipient had the final say on whether to accept or not.
The offering came in many forms such as a meal, a ride, a reader, a listener, a helper on the farm, a babysitter, a coach, etc.
Gestures or offers extending a hand of hope for the moment.
An offer with no strings attached and no monetary gain.
The common thread for a volunteer is Time.
