Celebrate National Volunteer Month

"The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

National Volunteer Month this April is the perfect time to live well. It's a quick-paced, sometimes bumpy, and often times chaotic life that we lead. So when you have the urge to hide under a blanket at the end of the week and recuperate with a plate of comfort food, remembering these things can help you make someone's day a little brighter:

You are one-of-a-kind. Volunteering can give you a healthy boost of confidence. When you are doing good for others and the community, don’t you feel accomplished? Find something that inspires you to leave the world in better condition than when you came into it!

You have a beautiful spirit. Volunteering sheds light on the beauty in your own soul. Let your light shine and share with the world a spirit they’ll never forget!

You are strong. Volunteering is good for your health! Studies have found that those who volunteer have a lower mortality rate than those who do not, even when considering factors like the health of the participants!

So, what do you say? Here's the perfect place to kick off National Volunteer Month with a bang!
