When I first started volunteering, I was all about the adrenaline rush. Like, oh we’re going to drive fast and there’s going to be lights and sirens, this is going to be awesome.
But that’s no longer the driving force. It’s fun for me, but ultimately you don’t volunteer for yourself, you volunteer for your community and for those people who you’re going to help.
It’s a very, kind of, like, clarifying moment for me: Oh, this...this is really why I do this.
I can really make a real difference in someone else’s life by being a volunteer.
