  3. You will have a reason to wake up in the morning.
  4. It will teach you to be selfless.
  5. You will realize how blessed you are.
  6. You will make a difference in every life that you touch.
  7. It will make you happier.
  8. You will know that you are doing something worthwhile.
  9. It will exercise your brain power.
  10. You will be more grateful of the things that you have.
  11. You are now part of the solution and not the problem.
  12. It will make you more human.
  13. You will meet a lot of inspiring people.

Choose a volunteer work that you love and join the NGOs that share your passion. Make things happen. “Dreams mean work.” You only have one life to live. Make it count.
