Yesterday, I offered my time to Moved.org, a nonprofit founded by Filipina philanthropist Alex Eduque. It was my second time to volunteer for the organization. My first time to do so was last month, which I considered as my birthday treat to self. Yes, I consider volunteering as a luxury. Here are some of the reasons why:
Volunteering keeps me busy whenever I am off-duty from freelance work and family obligations
My ability to work both alone and with a team is improved by volunteering
I get to serve others and expect nothing in return
I get to meet new friends!
I make the most of my time by doing something I love
I get to share my blessings and resources, even if it is just time
My heart grows bigger whenever I offer my time to benefit the needy, the disadvantaged, and those who simply need my help. As I sorted and assembled worksheets for preschool students in NCR, I was able to clear my mind from the seemingly petty issues I am facing. I realized that I am fortunate enough to have an education and continuous opportunities within my reach. I have time to help others and share what I have. And most of all, I get to be thankful for all the blessings that enable me to serve.
Please do check out Moved. Hope that you can also help them in the future!
