    I agree with the fact that volunteering gives you a boost of self worth! I have started at a nursing home a couple times a month and it makes me feel wonderful to know I put a smile on a persons face who seldom gets a visitor. I think it is an essential part of life and if everyone could volunteer at least for one organization then people could change people from their acts of kindness.
