Don’t worry about what your friends will say. Just do it. My family has always volunteered and talked about how important it is to give back to community. I volunteered for the first time with my Mum and Nana. I was about eight and it was a large community event. Recently I have done more formal types of volunteering at 630 CHED Santa’s Anonymous, The Mustard Seed and The Hope Mission. I give about eight hours a month at the Hope Mission. It has really opened my eyes to the lives some people have and how we can make a difference no matter how small.
