Even though I didn't participate in a day of service to commemorate the King Holiday on Monday, I have been thinking about finding some way to give back. Last year at this time, I was volunteering with a local organization; picking out clothes for foster kids and helping school children learn to read. Never mind that my primary motivation was the cutie that I was trying to get to know. Along the way, I really enjoyed myself and got a good feeling from doing my part to make my community better. The closer I got to the sister my Saturday morning were more filled with servings of hot sex and less filled with serving hot meals. Eventually, we looked up and it had been months since we participated in a volunteer event.
Several months later I find myself reminiscing about the feelings I got from volunteering more than the feelings I got from my ex. There are plenty of worthy causes that merit giving my free time. However, that is the problem. Too many choices. Do any of you volunteer? If so, what are some of the organizations that you work with? How did you decide on what you wanted to do?
