So many of us think we have to spend money to go out. Not so.
What’s more, when you go out and have to spend money to do so, you’re not assured of a great outing. You might not get the service your expect or the quality you’d hoped for. I can think of many evenings at the pub or restaurant where my expectations were too high for the money I spent.
However, if you volunteer for a community event, you can be most assured of a great experience. You are most always welcomed with open arms and well taken care of. Plus, the experience is more meaningful because you’ve done some good. Even if it’s hard work.
I spent my Saturday volunteering at the local public art gallery for a lunch event. Such fun. Great company, great cause, great food, great fun. Only cost me time, not a dime.
If your community has a volunteer bureau (ours doesn’t but needs one in case anybody reading this can change that), sign up and help out. Feels good to do good.
