My career may be in nonprofits, but I need reminders like this one of just how important philanthropy is – not just for the recipients of a volunteer’s time and resources, but for the volunteer himself.
My friend Dave Mills (a.k.a. @versadave if you’re a Twitter user) is partially deaf. In this post, Dave will tug at your heart strings and nudge you to be more giving with your time as he tells you about his experience volunteering through the United Way at St. Joseph’s Institute for the Deaf.
When’s the last time you volunteered? What’s that thing “in your heart, your life, your past, that you can use to help change the lives of others in a positive way”?
Thank you for this fantastic post, Dave.
