There are so many homeless animals in Tucson, Az, and despite the tireless efforts of the staff an volunteers, there are always far more animals in need. I volunteer because I love animals, and I always feel the love in return from the cats and dogs who are so grateful for even the brief company I give them. I most heartbreaking thing though is that there are homeless animal in every community in every state in the nation. So if you are reading this, and you are not in Tucson, please take to google, and search for your local animal shelter. Please consider helping out in any way (volunteer, donate, foster, adopt, fund raise) because even the smallest contribution could be enough to save a life.

I started a Feed the Children Fundraiser at my local school. When I first suggested this idea, I never imaged it would have such a great outcome. In just four days, my school was able to raise $690.27. This is enough money to sponsor a five-year-old girl from Kenya for 23 months.

Volunteering is a big part of life. I feel that giving back to the community and helping others is the best gift to give. It is a heartfelt, selfless and priceless effort made toward others. I don’t volunteer because I need community service hours to look good on my resume. I volunteer to strengthen and enhance my character and leadership skills and abilities. Sometimes I volunteer at Some Other Place, passing out food to less fortunate people of the community. I feel great when people smile because they see a smile on my face, enjoying what I am doing for them. Even though I enjoy volunteering there, my favorite place to volunteer is at the Art Museum in downtown, Beaumont, Texas. I especially love this because I am around many young children, and making them happy is very important to me. A happy child brings happy adults, which makes my volunteer duty a lot easier. In addition to this, I am able to hone in my social skills and my communication skills. When I volunteer I get an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment, because I have done something positive and beneficial for myself and others. That is the greatest feeling a person can ever have, knowing you have the power to change something and someone.
