In the next little while I will be attending a few charity auction events, which are a fun way to raise money for good causes. It is becoming harder for charities to raise the funds that they need and they look for the community to support them.
It got me thinking about the whole area of volunteerism and community involvement, which I do truly support. I sit on our industry board, am involved with several charities and will continue to give back at some level as long as I am able.
I am lucky … I have a good job, good health, a good standard of living and good prospects for the future. There are so many people who need help in some way or other and if we all pitched in I think this would be a much better place. If you do not volunteer some of your time in some way I would urge you to try it. It is good to help others and it has been my experience that the more you give, the more you seem to get!
Start small, start now … make a difference.
