Montage Monday: Why I Volunteer
Mwangi- sweet, cute, and into everything (don’t let the smile fool you, he got into a girl’s room and drew lipstick on everything)- is a perfect example as to why I volunteer. There’s been several articles recently on the Internet including one on whether you should pay to volunteer over at Almost Fearless and one on The Guardian about how volunteering can be harmful. I believe both have factors to consider, and I have loads of opinions on this that I will share in due time. But for now, I can only hope that as selfish as I am by saying how much I get out of seeing smiles like these, I hope these kids benefited just as much from my time spent with them.
