“I would love to volunteer…but I just don’t have the time!” Sound familiar?
Life is busy, no doubt. But isn’t it funny how you can hear someone say this, and then in the very next breath they’ll ask you if you’re caught up on the 10-hour Netflix series they just binge-watched? (Okay, I’m guilty too.) In a perfect world, we would all have the time and energy to volunteer our help to the causes in our community that we care most about (be it animal care, homelessness, continuing education, you name it).
So why is it that many people don’t prioritize volunteerism? Perhaps carving out that time would be more enticing if we knew there was something in it for us…well, there is.
