Why volunteering and charity work matters

There are many people that say that they would give there spare time for nothing. i.e. no monetary or tangible gain. Its demeaning, my time is precious are excuses often used. There are also many people that say that they wouldn’t donate to charities. There’s an old saying that ‘no man/woman is an island’. Interpreted as everyone needs support and assistance at some point in their lives. In the hour of need, the power of human kindness will move individuals to freely give their time, donate money, clothes or other tangible items. Volunteering and charity work shows compassion and understanding, more importantly its a privilege  to be able share what we have been blessed with give something back.
