I believe time is the most precious gift a person can give. That’s why I like volunteering so much! I bounce between a few organizations, but I spend much of my time with Canadian Blood Services. I feel as though I’ve given back to my community, regardless of how much or how little I can offer on any given day. As a multicultural nation, we are known for our humanitarian efforts and that is only made possible by the individuals behind these efforts, Canadians like us. We can have a significant impact on social movements and groups. We are so connected through the web yet so disconnected in reality; I believe volunteering helps, both, the cause and oneself.
